Epoxy Resin is a great material to use to make simple jewellery pieces, especially this resin pendant. Once cured, the resin is a long-lasting material and is therefore ideal to create pieces of jewellery that will last. Through #HaksonsPick, we have got the opportunity to see so many interesting accessories created with our resin.

Prep the Resin Pendant Structure
These bezel pendant structures will be our base for the product. To prep the base, stick a clear piece of packing tape at the back of the pendant to contain the resin. Make sure it is stuck properly, and there is no room for leakage.
Prep your Resin
Use the Haksons High Gloss Resin, to create the resin hardener mixture, as per the instructions on the box. If you are confused about the calculations, check out our Resin Calculator App.
Divide the resin into three paper cups, and mix in Haksons pigments in the colours- opaque white, turquoise blue and regular blue. We love how these colour make the resin pendant look, however, feel free to substitute based on your favourites.
Make sure to mix thoroughly till you have a homogenous mixture.
Pour in the Resin
Pour in the resin into the structure in an abstract and random manner. Use an ice-cream stick to mix in the colours in the base structure. Make sure not to overmix, so each colour still manages to stand out.
Final Touches to your Resin Pendant
After letting your peice cure for 24 hours, peel of the packing tape. String through a chain, and voila! Your handmade accessory is ready!
