Fabric Filigree Necklace in Resin
What you'll need to make this:
- Large Silicone Doming Tray
- Resin 12 oz. Set (deals on multiples)
- Spring Drill - the easiest drill for resin jewelry
- Tiny Pointy Swabs - pack of 100
(selections can be changed at checkout)

You'll also need

- Fabric with a filigree design - fabrics react differently in resin, watch the tutorial to help you choose which will work best

- White cardstock, if you decide to back your fabrics as shown in the video

- Waxed paper or another non-stick surface (back of your doming tray works, if you're not using it for other projects at the time)

- Sharp scissors, a craft knife, and a cutting surface

- Whatever jewelry findings you want to use to turn your piece into wearable jewelry.  I used Wire Lace in colors that matched my fabric, and tied beads to the ends rather than adding a clasp, so it's adjustable.

- Paper towels

This is one of the most time consuming resin projects I've made, mostly due to the fine cutting of all the details to make the piece look airy and delicate.  It's not hard, but it does take patience.  The quilting cotton I chose has a metallic ink print to accent the design, and these accents show up even more in resin, to my delight.

Once I had my piece made I decided to tie several cords of Wire Lace in different colors through the design, rather than drilling and using jump rings, but you can do that too if you prefer.  I made the cords long enough to be tied at the back, with extra length to hang down, this way it's adjustable.  I tied coordinating beads to the ends to finish it off.

I'm loving this technique. If you're looking for the best resin supplies for beginners, or if you've already got skills, you'll find everything you need here at  The video above shows how to select the best fabrics for this technique, and how to treat them before applying resin so you get the best looking results. Some fabrics will need a white backing to help the design pop.

The projects you make with this concept can be simple, or lead into a complex fiber wonderland. We have the best resin jewelry starter kit, and unique resin jewelry supplies to make your ideas come to life. In the video I focus on the Resin Doming Technique that Brilliant Resin does so well, but there are lots of ways to use fabrics in your castings too. This is also a great project for mixed media, so throw in an image, a charm, some pigments, or some beads for extra dimension. In addition to the best resin jewelry supplies, this how-to video will walk you step-by-step through how to turn your fabric scraps into awesome pieces! 

Here's a coordinating charm bracelet I made:
