Ice Resin Blog Hop - Altered Jewelry

Welcome to the Ice Resin Blog Hop!  If you're not familiar with Ice Resin, you'll want to hop over to the Ice Resin Website and read more details about this wonderful product!  Besides using this product to fill your Bezels, you can also add Color for tinting, use it as a Glue and much more!  Today, I'm using it to alter some jewelry pieces.

I found these cool pieces at Michales and decided to alter them with stamped images.  The Sterling Plated Pendant and bracelet are from the Jill MacKay Collection.  I stamped images from The Outpost plate from Artistic Outpost for the Pendant, coloring with Markers.  The images for the bracelet come from the Birds of Feather plate.  Once I had my images in place, I added the Ice Resin.  It's important to note that you do not heat the Ice Resin, it needs to sit in order to cure.


For this piece, I was inspired by a Make and Take at CHA.  I used items from the Tim Holtz Idea-ology Line as my necklace, adding Tiny Fastners into the holes on the side.  I adhered a backing to the bookplate, so the resin would not leak out.  Make sure to set your piece on a wax paper, just incase some resin does leak, it will be easy to remove your bookplate.  You can always add more resin later if some does leak out once it's cured.  I used images from Kitchen Sink Stamps 3 Step Butterflies and 3 Step Letters from the Past and collaged them for my center.  The larger heart is from the Idea-ology Line, the smaller hearts are from Blue Moon.

Thanks so much Lisa for playing along. I'm really impressed since you've only just found ICE Resin since CHA. You definitely have a knack for working with it and also incorporating other manufacturers. Great job! -- Jen

LOVE THEM!!!! Awesome stuff sweetie. I tried to get some from Artbeads but they were out (have a GC). Can't wait to try it. In fact I think I might have gotten the same bracelet you did.

I love your pieces - the ink colored stamped images look so clear. Just beautiful!
