Resin Bangles

News Flash! Check out my latest post for your chance to win a handmade resin bangle.

This morning I decided I need to make some jewellery to coordinate with my wardrobe. I make a lot of jewellery but don't wear as much of it as I'd like simply because it doesn't go with what I wear! So I thought it was about time I rectified that.

I have a very limited range of colours in my wardrobe ranging from plums to smoky pinks with a splash of purple and a sprinkling of burgundy thrown in - colours that really suit my complexion and that feel so "me" when I wear them. But whilst it's relatively easy to find clothing in this range of colours, I've found it difficult to find accessories "off the rack", so to speak, that coordinate with my clothes. And that's where resin comes in.... I can tint it to any colour I like! So this morning, I pulled out the resin and my Krafty Lady bangle moulds and began tinting away. This is what I came up with.
What a perfect match!

I proudly wore the bangle to work today and showed it off to my workmates who were all amazed that I'd made it myself earlier that day!

There are more resin bangle samples on my website. If you'd like to learn how to make them yourself, send me an email for details of the next workshop I'm teaching.
