Looking for a quick and easy gift for Valentine’s Day?  This project fits the bill.  Remember this post on patriotic resin jewelry?  The process is the same, except I used Valentine’s Day sprinkles instead of red, white and blue.  I also used heart shape bezels which I found with the polymer clay at Hobby Lobby.   Follow along for the step by step, and you will be on your way to your very own LOVE jewelry.

Supplies:

  • Magic Glos
  • Pendant and earring bezels and desired jewelry findings
  • A sunny day, or UV curing lamp; I use Lisa Pavelka’s and it works like a charm
  • Toothpicks
  • Tile small enough to fit into lamp to cure your pieces on
  • Sprinkles
  • small mixing  cupResin jewelry supplies

Instructions:

  • Pour some sprinkles into the cup, along with a few drops of Magic Glos and using toothpick, mix resin and sprinkles so that sprinkles are coated.

  • Use toothpick to pick up a clump of sprinkles/resin and spread into bezel.  You don’t want the sprinkles to go higher than the lip of the bezel.  When you are happy with the coverage, put a drop or two of Magic Glos in the middle and expose to UV to cure (either outside on a sunny day, or under a UV lamp.  Valentine's Day crafts
  • Once cured, add another layer of resin to get the dome effect and cure again. You can add embellishments, stickers or whatever you can think of at this point too. I used my label maker to make this love sticker. I put it on top of the cured layer, then put resin over it, then cured.

TIP:  Use toothpick to “pull” resin from middle of piece out to the edges

I just love this UV resin.  There is another, way less expensive brand called UltraDome, which is being shipped to me soon.  I hope I love it as much as I love Magic Glos.  I will keep you posted!
