Reasons to Wear Epoxy Resin Necklace
Wearing epoxy resin necklace jewelry that is meaningful to you and that reflects your individuality can help boost your self-esteem. It's important to remember that the jewelry you choose is a reflection of your individuality, taste, and liberation.
Epoxy resin necklace jewelry has the power to provoke a wide range of feelings, from pleasure to pride. It can put you in touch with your past and the people who have touched your life. Imagine slipping on a necklace created by the hands of someone who wishes nothing but the best for your life.
The feelings invoked during the process of creating the epoxy resin necklace jewelry are the same feelings you can experience each and every time you wear it. This is why it's so important to choose jewelry made by people who live peaceful and serene lifestyles.
Jewelry that has special meaning for the wearer may have a profound effect on one's sense of self-worth. Wearing jewelry is a common way for people to express their creative side and show off their social standing. With the right epoxy resin necklace, you can feel like a million bucks.
How to Make Epoxy Resin Necklace
To make an epoxy resin necklace, all you need are:
Step 1: Choose a Necklace Mold
Your necklace mold should look something similar to the one in the image below. As you can see, it already provides you with a hole to slide the necklace chain through after it hardens.
Step 2: Fill Necklace Mold With Charms
Next, you're going to add whatever charms you want to the epoxy resin necklace mold. For the picture below, we added two sequence charms. However, for the final product picture that we show on steps 4 & 5, you'll see that the charm we added was an angel feather.
Step 3: Mix the Epoxy
Mixing the epoxy is easy. It will likely come in two parts, requiring a 50/50 mixture. Personally, I always add just a tad bit more hardener (part B of the mixture) to achieve the hardening effect that I desire.
Pour the amount of epoxy that you'll need, which is very tiny for this necklace, into a plastic cup. Avoid styrofoam cups, as they will melt once the epoxy activates and becomes warm. You'll need to pour way less than an ounce of part A and part B.
With just a tablespoon of part A and a tablespoon of part B in the epoxy resin mixture, I can fill five to seven of these necklace molds. Make sure to stir the mixture using a popsicle stick for a full two minutes before pouring. If you want to tint the mixture, add a tiny drop (a toothpick end's worth) of acrylic paint in the color you want and stir.
Step 4: Pour the Mixture Into the Mold
Slowly and carefully pour your mixture into the epoxy resin necklace mold. Don't pour too much, or you will cover the necklace chain hole. You can always poke a hole after it hardens, but it's tedious and time-consuming. Once poured, your mold should look like the following:
Step 5: Let the Mold Sit
The next step is to let the mold set for 24 hours. If you have access to an oven, you can heat it to 350 degrees and turn it off. As it cools, set the filled necklace mold in the oven on a pizza pan, with the door remaining slightly open at all times to vent the hot air. This will decrease the hardening time by several hours. Just make sure the oven is completely off and venting during the entire time in which you let the mold harden.
Step 6: Pop the Resin Out of the Mold
Lastly, after the resin cures, you can pop it out of the mold. The ability to see the charms inside will all depend on the tinting you perform. As you can see in the image from step 4, we made the tint way too purple, meaning we added too much purple acrylic paint to the mixture. Thankfully, though, once the mixture hardened and we popped it out of the mold, we flipped it and saw the charm perfectly (check out the picture below).
Step 7: Add a Necklace Chain
I personally like the elastic necklace chains the best for all of the epoxy resin necklaces that I create. An elastic necklace chain allows the jewelry to comfortably fit any person of any size. This gets rid of the headache of having to look for a new chain length. Another reason I like elastic chains is because they come in an assortment of colors, easily allowing you to change the look and feel of any necklace at any moment.
