Jewelry Resin Birdies

 My necklace features two birds that I made with leftover resin.
 Most of the time, when I made a batch of resin, I have a very good idea how much I will need.  Occasionally I do make a little extra and on my table I have molds and other containers I can pour this "left over" resin in to.  This little bird mold is one that I use a lot.
 My cured resin birds always looks so pretty when they are clear and transparent, but they are hard to see.  I decided to glue my birds to some Japanese paper.
 Here are three birds after I cut away the excess paper.  Now they look wonderful!  I drilled two tiny holes into the winds and attached them to a metal tree branch.
 This really is "birds on a wire."
They are now the focal point of a new necklace.

This post was designed, photographed and written by me.

Oh my! I love these birds. You could sell them to me. ;-) Love the chain and the branch too. Often it is the leftovers from a project like the resin that I like better than what I did with it! Enjoy the day! Erin

I've just started with the whole resin thing,and it really is rewarding.
And your blog has been a good source of information!
Thank you.

wow, I love how you made the necklace with the birds. what kind of "Japanese paper" are you using? is it just the pattern or is it a special kind of paper? whatever it is it looks good! i also like the way you left the birds a matte finish instead of glossing them up.

Wow. I love these. Who makes that bird mold? Since the paper is on the back, do you coat it with anything to protect it?
