Paper and Resin - The Perfect Pairing

These types of necklaces are the easiest to create (with resin filled bezels) 
if you remember a few simple tricks of the trade.

Many of my projects begin with paper collections already preselected.
This stack of Japanese papers are beautifully coordinated.

I gathered a group of bezels.  
These are easy to work with because the circle is a standard one inch size.
Be sure to wipe away any oils that may still remain on these metal components.

I used a one inch punch to cut out this pile of circle inserts.

I glued and then sealed all these papers into the bezels.
As I have done so many times before on this blog, 
I let the glue and sealer coats dry 24 hours before pouring resin into all of them.

My necklace is unique and the perfect addition to my spring wardrobe.

This is a visual feast! I adore the colours and which images you chose to put in the bezels. Did you add the gold or was it already printed? I so love this. I have this image of you with your 1" punch running around like someone playing Pokemon Go but in your case trying to catch an image to put it in resin. (same thing, no?)
