Translucent Resin Jewelry - Time Consuming But Worth It

Translucent Resin Jewelry - Time Consuming But Worth It

The art of allowing light, but not detailed shapes, to pass through; is the beauty of translucent resin jewelry.  It is enhanced by allowing the wearer to become part of the artwork.  All done while trying to minimize the ever-present bubbles that appear in resin.

To achieve this look the greatest care is taken when casting the resin.  Everything is done in slow motion from pouring the resin to mixing.  Once cured the resin is hand sanded for anywhere from 3-6 hours.  Beginning with a 400 grit sandpaper and ending with 8000 grit results in the jewelry having a luminescent appearance as well as making it silky smooth to the touch.  The hours spent sanding is a great time to catch up on my favorite movies or audiobooks!
