Whether it’s for the love of Star Wars or all things astrological, these beautiful DIY resin galaxy bangle bracelets make a great gift idea for any space loving fan.
I must admit that we do have a few galaxy fans in our home. My husband’s secret moniker just may be “Space Cadet” (don’t tell anyone).
With the release of the new Star Wars movie next week it seems like the perfect time to make some galaxy themed accessories .
When I think of the cosmos all that comes to mind is sparkle, black, blue and purple swirled all together. And that’s exactly what I tried to replicate with this simple resin jewelry project.

How to make Galaxy Resin Bracelets
Be sure to read all the instructions on the package before starting. Work in a well-ventilated area. Always wear gloves and protect your working surface.
Begin by mixing together equal parts of Resin and Hardener in a small measuring cup. Stir completely for two minutes.
Transfer the mixture into a second measuring cup and continue stirring for an additional minute.
Divide the mixed resin into four separate cups.
Start with one of the colors such as black and add a little bit to different areas of the bracelet mold. Make sure to leave some areas without any black resin.
Take a second resin color such as the clear glitter resin and fill in some of the other areas of the bracelet mold. Continue randomly pouring bits of the different colors of resin to get a layered and swirly effect.
Continue until the mold is filled.
Consider sprinkling a bit of clear glitter in a couple areas of the mold.
After about 15 to 20 minutes blow off any air bubbles that have risen to the top of the mold. Use either a small kitchen torch or your breath through a straw for this.
Make sure that the bracelet is on a level surface and cover to prevent any dust from settling in. Let the resin cure overnight.
Remove the bracelet from the mold and enjoy.
I think the bracelet turned out absolutely beautifully. The different layers of dark and clear resin along with the glitter make it really fascinating to look at. You can completely daydream while staring at this little piece of outer space.
