Sara Naumann takes you through the very simple technique of resin jewelry making with clear instructions and step-by-step photographs in her own straightforward style. The technique is very simple you simply mix the two-part resin together and pour into a bezel, pendant or other receptacle, depending on what you are making. Rings, pendants, brooches, bracelets and cufflinks are all easy to make and look incredibly professional when done.
Sara uses the brand ICE Resin, which is very popular in the US and is widely available in the craft industry. It is also easily available in the UK, through several different sales channels, including Amazon and independent shops. Other brands of resin are also widely available and easy to use just follow the manufacturer's instructions on the packaging.
The twist with this book is the inclusion of paper so this is partly about paper-crafted jewellery. Old papers like maps and sheet music give a vintage vibe, while scrapbooking or origami papers look fresh and contemporary. Paper can also be painted, stenciled, or layered with washi tape before being coated with resin. Photos and small inclusions like dried flowers, beads or charms can also be immersed in the resin before it cures. Sara also uses glitters, colors and all kinds of other items to create her stunning resin jewelry.
This book will therefore have wide appeal, being attractive to the papercrafting and jewelry-making markets alike. Sara has wide experience as a mixed-media artist and her ideas are simple but very effective.
