Garrnet Earrings and Bracelet

Garnet Earrings and Bracelet
Originally uploaded by doodlebugfairy

I went to a small bead shop in Homewood, AL and found my birthstone (garnet). I could not pass up buying these chips. I crocheted them on wire picking up one chip per stitch. This is how it came out. I have to make a clasp for the bracelet.

Resin Pendants

I have been trying different things with resin. This time I used dye and embedded items. I learned that when embedding pour a first layer and let it jell then and the items to be embedded then pour the last layer. This keeps the items from sinking to the bottom. I also learned that when using dye don't add to much. If you do the resin will not set (harden).


  1. Peaceful greetings from Jamaica. Are those jump rings embedded in the resin? That is beautiful!
