My multi color swirl necklace is now strung and ready to wear!
In Part One of this project post I showed you how my resin baubles
looked after I sanded away the edges.
The sanding marks make them look very unfinished.
The easiest technique to make the edges look clear again
is also the one that takes the longest.
Over several days I make small batches of resin which I brush carefully onto the edges. Since I can't do all the sides at once, I prop the baubles on their side and turn them as the resin cures.
I call this a glaze layer of resin. The edges immediately become clear and gorgeous.
When my sides looked perfect again I simply drilled some holes into my pieces with my dremel.
There are many ways to string!
I choose to over-embellish
so I used gorgeous enameled beads, gold spacer bails and a simple clasp.
