Resin, Paper, Scissors

These are the promised pendants. I call them Landscape Pendants. The idea hit me on Friday while I was outside laying on a lawn chair in my backyard reading a book. I thought what about creating mini landscapes in a pendant. So, I set out to do just that.

I started with group of bezels that I had left over from my previous resin experimentation.
Then, I used scrapbook paper that I had lying around to cut tiny shapes. Each individual cloud, tree, path, mountain, etc.. started out as a tiny piece of paper.
I then proceeded to paste them onto a tiny blue background that I created to fit inside the bezel.

The last step was to fill with resin and let cure. These still need a couple more days until they are completely cured, but they're finished.
Poplars Ring
Could you get any more OCD? My fiance said, "Wow. You've found something smaller than beads!"
These pendants (and the ring) measure 1" by 1". They're very small, but they contain a tiny world inside them. Since Friday my head has been spinning with landscape ideas. Grand Canyon, waterfalls, hills, fields, desert sands...the list is endless.

Oh, and finally, last but not least, Sarah's Ring. She won my giveaway and this was the ring she created. It's awesome. The colors are incredible and it'll be on its way to her tomorrow. I hope you have a great day!


  1. Aw! Those little resin landscapes are just darling! LOVE!

  2. Those are amazing. I really like the feeling that they are like miniature paintings. Beautiful.

  3. I love the landscape pendants. You are truely mulit-talented! I can't wait to see more.

  4. Very, very cute! Can't wait to see more as well.

  5. Love these! Keep it up - it's so nice to see different things being done with resin! Great idea!

  6. Wow - your little tiny landscapes are incredible! Good luck with them :) And I love the ring!

  7. Those are some sweet bezels! I love that you painstakingly took the time to build the layers. I have no patience for that. I can barely wait for my layers of paper to dry before pouring in the resin, often to my detriment. Enjoy the day! Erin

  8. Your landscape pendants are great. I'm sure they'll sell.
