valentine's day ice resin heart pendant

Step 1
Project Note: Follow the manufacturer's instructions for using the Ice Resin®. Work in a well-ventilated area and avoid contact with skin.
 
Rinse your jewelry bezel and wipe clean, to ensure it is free of dirt and dust. 
Step 2
Using a clean disposable plastic cup and craft stick, mix the Ice Resin® by dispensing equal parts of resin and hardener into the plastic cup.  
Step 3
Thoroughly mix the combination with the craft stick for one minute. 
Step 4
Drip the mixed resin or slowly and carefully pour enough of the mixture to cover the bottom of the heart bezel. Use a safety pin to pop tiny air bubbles. 
Step 5
Sprinkle glitter into the resin.  
Step 6
Cut the top loop from the charm using wire cutters. Cut as flush to the top of the charm as possible to eliminate sharp or uneven edges.  
Step 7
Carefully place the charm down inside the heart, on top of the layer of resin. The resin will surround the outer edges of the charm. Do not submerge the charm with resin. You want the charm to sit inside the bezel with resin surrounding it, but not covering the top of the charm. The charm should appear as if it’s floating on the resin.  
Step 8
Fill the remaining bezel with resin. Take caution not to pour or drop too much resin into the bezel. You want just enough to level out the resin and cover the sides of the charm. Use a safety pin to eliminate tiny air bubbles.  
Step 9
Set bezel aside to dry 8-12 hours.  
Step 10
Measure and cut length of desired chain for necklace, using wire cutters.  
Step 11
Add a lobster clasp to one end of the chain using a jump ring and chain nose pliers. To open and close a jump ring, simply grasp both sides of the jump ring and twist the ring open by using a back and forth motion. Never open the jump ring by pulling outward, which can cause distortion. 
Step 12
Attach another jump ring to the opposite end of chain, using chain nose pliers.  
Step 13
String the fully dry bezel onto chain to wear as a necklace.
 
Tip: Read full manufacture instructions prior to using Ice Resin.
