Stampendous Fragments and Jewelry Resin

I hope that this necklace caught your eye.
 This is also a new favorite!
 This is day two of my week of posts dedicated to Stampendous! products 
and our collaboration with Jewelry Resin!
 The Stampendous design team all received Jewelry Resin and a number of other goodies to work with.
 In my stash of Stampendous products was this collection of mica and colored fragments and glitter.   I decided to see how these fabulous items would look embedded in resin.
Step One:  In my mold I poured in about 1/8 of an inch of Jewelry Resin and let it cure over night.
 Step Two:  The next day I glued fragments to the first layer of resin and let that dry.
Step Three:  I poured a second layer of Jewelry Resin over the fragments 
and let that cure for another day.
 Step Four:  On day three I mixed two batches of Jewelry Resin and added white and black pigment to colour it.  These coloured resin batches were then poured into the molds.  
I then let the mold cure for 48 hours (a full cure.)
 Sometimes it is hard to get your molded pieces to pop out of the original mold after they have cured.  If you place your mold in the freezer for an hour, they will pop out easily.
 One of my pieces I sanded in order to get it to fit into a bezel.
 Here are the fragments on white.
 The other molded pieces I encased in clay and turned them into pendants as well.
 The mica fragments are quite beautiful.
 The black resin really does make each chip shine.
 Finally, I could not resist making one more sample.  This bezel I simply filled with fragments and glitter.  These items have been glued in place.
 I poured Jewelry Resin over the dried piece....and it is now so gorgeous!

 I don't think anyone will be surprised to hear that I love the fragments!
 There is still so much more to show you this week!
