Here's what I've created for today:
I was channeling my inner "Alison" for this one, Alison being my good friend and teammate, Alison Heikkila, who loves to think outside the "pretty bonbon box". This first version features the Stampendous Cling Skull Roses, stamped in black StazOn on a 2 1/2" circle of white polyshrink. A bit of talcum was wiped over the front and back before heating to prevent it from sticking to itself, and then flattened with an acrylic block. This was the perfect size to fit inside the large Klik bezel. Using a glue marker, I applied a bit of glue on the flower and sprinkled this with Stampendous Micro Glitter in purple. Two tiny glowing green rhinestones were adhered over the eyes. Now to mix the Envirotex Jewelry Resin...follow the package directions, avoid a really humid day, and pour a small amount into the bezel until it domes. Let it cure 12-24 hours. I placed mine between two pencils since the snap on the back of the bezel prevents it from laying flat. Any tiny bubbles can be softly blown away. Two of the smaller bezels were filled with a mix of Fran•tagé Color Fragments in Trick or Treat mix, and Hot Lime, and Amethyst. More resin was poured over these. If the pieces float to the surface, just poke them back down with the tip of a needle or wire. Once cured, the finishing touches were an attached chain, and black leather cording. The cross and the "jewels" were colored with Copic Sketch Markers. I inked, and glittered a paper flower, and attached a portion of it to the underside of this bezel piece.
My second interchangeable bezel, was created with the same process as above, but using the Stampendous Cling Tomb Elements image. More of the Color Fragments were added before the addition of the resin, and just as the others, was set aside to cure 12-24 hours.
I have to say that I really enjoyed working with both the Klik products as well as the Jewelry Resin...so simple to create some wonderful jewelry pieces! Now it's time for you to visit the rest of the line up for this final day!
