The next technique we’ll talk about is UV resin which is popular in craft stores and has been used for years to create beads, stones, buttons, and various decorations. Finally, the last technique we’ll discuss is the polyester resin which is used to create the different colors of beads, stones, buttons, and decorations.

Resin jewelry kits typically contain a UV lamp, acrylic mold, and various instructions on how to make your item(s) with those three resin molds. Typically, you would make a necklace with UV resin jewelry and a UV lamp to get the color you want, then simply apply a clear gloss varnish to allow the UV lamp to reflect the natural color of the resin jewelry to create the desired color. You can find instructions printed on the box of the resin jewelry kit or online. Then, simply place the jewelry into the molds, fill with the resin, and you’re done!
