You can make your own donut necklace and earrings from resin in just a few minutes. These would make a great gift or a very whimsical addition to your jewelry box. We are sharing the quick and easy craft tutorial below so make a set for yourself or to give as a gift.
Supplies needed to make a donut necklace and earrings:
- EasyCast Clear Casting Epoxy
- EasyCast Resin Jewelry Molds
- Castin’ Craft Mold Release/Conditioner
- Earring posts and backs
- Necklace hook
- Necklace chain
- Jewelry adhesive
- Measuring cups
- Mixing cups
- Stir sticks
- Protective gloves
Start by spraying your mold with the mold release and conditioner. Allow to dry completely before continuing. Then mix up the EasyCast Clear Casting Epoxy according to the package directions. Be sure to do the two cup mixing procedure to ensure everything is mixed well. You will also need to wear protective gloves while mixing.
Then add the non-pariels to your mixture. You will need to add a BUNCH of these to your mixed resin. Really pack it full of these so you don’t get any settling in your finished product.
Then place your mixture down into the ring mold for both the necklace and earrings. Pop any bubbles that rise to the surface.
Then put the mold on a level surface and allow to cure completely. I allowed mine to cure overnight. Pop out of the mold and use the jewelry adhesive to add the backs to the earrings. You will also need to add a hook to the necklace piece and place it on your chain.
Your donut necklace and earrings are now ready for wearing or giving as gifts. This simple idea will look great when you wear them for a fun party!
Be sure to grab your supplies and make your own version of this fun project! You can think of other things that you can make with this same technique as well. Mix up the colors of your non-pariels or just add in glitter! Either way, you are sure to love making your own necklace and earrings!
