I am so excited to share today’s tutorial with you because not only is it a super quick and easy project (I’m talking MINUTES, y’all!) but it’s also perfect for gifting!
Today I’m going to show how to create beautiful, one of a kind resin jewelry using hildie & jo UV Resin from Joann Craft Stores. It’s beyond easy and the results are so beautiful and unique – you’ll love creating this simple project!
Ready? Here’s what you’ll need:
UV Resin (I used hildie & jo UV Resin)
Silicone Mold (I used the hildie & jo resin smooth bracelet silicone mold)
Silicone Cups for mixing (I used the hildie & jo resin Silicone Cups and Sticks set)
Resin Mixing Sticks (I used the hildie & jo resin gem mixing sticks)
Glitter (I used the hildie & jo Glitter Galaxy Mutli set)
UV Light (I used the hildie & jo Resin Flow Through Light)
Step 1: Mix Resin and Glitter
One of the really cool parts about UV resin is that it’s a one-step resin – so no measuring or mixing is required!
I am using two different colors for glitter for my bangle, so I’m using two cups to mix the glitter and the resin – one for each color.
Pro Tip: The more glitter you add, the more opaque your finished piece will be – so, I like to add lots of glitter to make it really pop!
Step 2: Fill Your Mold
Gently open the mold and pour in the resin mixture.
Note: UV resin tends to run when you pour it, so you want to gently pour it in the mold and allow it to run through the bangle. Since I am doing two colors of glitter, I’m going to add the other color starting at the other side and allow them to mix together to create a really fun look.
Pro Tip: If your mold is not completely full, you can top off the mold with a little bit of clear UV resin. It will fill in any areas that aren’t all the way full and without altering the look of your finished bangle.
Note: UV resin is safe to use and will easily wash off your hands, but I do recommend wearing gloves if you’re at all sensitive.
Step 3: Cure the Resin
Now it’s time to cure and harden the resin. UV resin is cured using UV light and takes only a few minutes to harden!
Simply slide the filled mold under your UV lamp. My hildie & jo flow through lamp automatically turns on when you slide the mold under it and automatically turns off when it’s time to remove it.
Step 4: Demold
Now for the fun part! It’s time to demold your brand new creation!
Gently pull the mold away from the hardened resin. If you notice any spots that are still a little soft, you can pop it back under the light to cure a bit longer.
Note: it will be slightly warm to the touch when you remove it from the UV light. You can let it cool for a few minutes if needed.
Step 5: Enjoy!
That’s it – your new UV resin bangle is done and ready to wear! Can you believe how easy that was?!
