Ugly Sweater Christmas Resin Necklace

This is my version of the ugly Christmas sweater.  If I worked in an office I would have happily worn this with some crazy over the top sweater.


The necklace was created because of this gorgeous Christmas card by Turnovsky.
I love these cards and always try and recycle the artwork into something else.
I don't sell my jewelry, so this is simply something fun for me.


Before you pour resin over paper you need to seal it several times.  You can see here that I used a clear drying decoupage medium.  Once my paper was sealed, I poured in resin.  No additional glitter or embellishments were needed because these cards are already foiled and embossed.


My final set of bezels are just what I wanted!


A few hours of fun stringing later, I had my over the top ugly sweater necklace.

Oh, that's how it's done! (laugh) ... whenever I try this things get washed out. I am going to have to try some decoupage first. I wonder if this would also work with dried flowers? I find resin tends to completely bleach out the color of the pansies I have tried.
