Resin Jewelry Making Workshop

While epoxy resin has been used in industrial applications for decades, recent advancements have made the mixing of resin easy and safe enough to use at home. One application for resin is the creation of beautiful jewelry, encasing small objects or photos for use in pendants, earrings, belt buckles and much more. In this panel, Dawn will teach you how to mix resin for use in jewelry, the different tools required and demonstrate the creation of pieces using bezels. The first 10 participants to sign up at ops will be able to participate in the hands on demonstration, although everyone is welcome to come and view
the panel.
