I was so excited to read about Objects & Elements blog hop last week as I was already compiling some resin resources for you, my dear creative readers! So to start the hop here at the Art Bead Scene I'd like to show you some wonderful examples of ICE resin and art bead bezels.
First up is a ceramic box bezel from Jangles. You can see her whole collection of clay bezels here. She has filled this one up with a collection of beachy finds. I love this, summer trapped in a pendant!
Next up we have some Elaine Ray ceramic bezels that were filled by Cynthia Dies from Ornamentea. That is where you'll happen to find these pendants. Perfect for steampunk or earthy inspired creations.
And our last examples are some of Melanie Brooks' Travel Talisman pendants. She created these before the Bead Cruise and the middle one happens to be mine now! These were created with vintage maps, working compasses and other tidbits. You can find a nice assortment of one-of-kind pendants from Melanie in her Earthenwood Studio Etsy shop.
The good folks at Ornamentea have provided their customers with a bezel template.
You can find their bezels and template here.
Resin is 'the thing' at the moment. If you haven't given it a try, go for it! It's fun and a nice way to add a little personal touch to your creations.
And from Rings & Things here are three juicy links with copyright-free images, you know you need something swanky to put into those bezels!
And now go Hop!
Here is the list of participating blogs, be sure to visit each to for inspiration using ICE resin.
