Nunn Design - Fall Inspiration Project One

 Today is the first of three posts featuring projects I made with Jewelry Findings from the Nunn Design Fall catalogue.
 Nunn Design sent me one of everything in the new catalogue!
 The bezels in my final pendant feature two resin pours.  I selected some vintage paper for the background and an Erte fashion model.  These paper images were all sealed with Aleen's Matte Decoupage medium.  Here are my bezels curing after I poured in some Envirotex Lite.  Note that I did not fill the bezels to the brim.
 Twenty four hours later I was able to add some gel marker lines and details to the surface of the resin.

 Then I did a second doming pour of Envirotex Lite resin over the gel marker.  My bezels look so pretty and the gel marker looks like it is floating.
 I braided this kumihimo cord with complementary colours to complete the necklace.

I love the way you wrote on the resin. That is a nice touch!

That is a beautiful necklace! The bezels and the cord are perfect together.

I tell you...these Nunn components build themselves when I go to bed at night! So pretty!

Hi Carmi you have such inspirational ideas, this piece is so good. I have totally fallen in love with the religious medal charms, I have ideas rattling about in my head when I think about them! I managed to finally get my hands on some jewelry resin (I live in Northern Ireland!) and can't wait to try it out. Can you share what make of gel pens you use pretty please?
