How To Make Resin Pendants (by Ashley Hackshaw)

First of all you need bezel.

We'll fill them with nonpareil “sprinkles” from the grocery store and glitter:

Paint the base with glitter fabric paint.
When that is dry add a small thin layer of regular craft glue on one side:

Shake some glitter on glue

Instead of using the resin that you have to measure out and mix together I used this Gel du Soleil. The .3oz bottle is tiny but it’s enough for probably 4 or 5 pendants.  The fumes aren’t as toxic and it cures just by setting it in the sunlight or under UV lights:

Put a layer of craft glue on the bottom of the pendant and then shake out the sprinkles to cover the bottom. When it is dry shake off any excess:
If you get any air bubbles in your resin just take 
a small pin and pop them or pull them over to the side and lift them out:
Here’s a side view so that you can see
 how the resin fills up the entire pendant and has a nice smooth “glassy” finish:
