Hello ocean lovers, get out your resin jewelry supplies and get ready for some fun!  I hope you enjoy this detailed tutorial on how to make glow in the dark ocean wave jewelry with your resin jewelry supplies from This video above not only covers working in bezels and open-backed donut beads to create amazing ocean wave jewelry, it also includes a how-to for making ocean resin coasters with an octopus lurking in the deep, and resin layers cast in silicone molds with turtles surfing the waves. I hope you love creating these beautiful jewelry projects with mermaids and seahorses frolicking on top through the ripple effect. 

This post focuses on creating Glowing Ocean Waves Resin Jewelry, pushing textures to new heights and using your resin jewelry supplies in new ways. See the next post in our IDEAS+HOW-TO's project library for details and close-ups of the resin coaster and castings I created. All of these projects are created in layers, so they will take more time than the average pieces I teach you, as you'll need to allow time for set-up between layers.  A little planning is needed for this to go smoothly, so don't rush, just have fun!

I used the resin jewelry supplies listed above, along with some isopropyl alcohol to create different types of ocean wave textures including Brilliant Resin, Alcohol Inks, and White Resin Colorant, poured in angled layers. You'll find the best Resin Jewelry Supplies and so many project tutorials here at, and if you need help along the way, just ask!

Here are some photos of the Glow In The Dark resin ocean waves jewelry I made in this tutorial. I love the textures created by pouring in layers and manipulating the alcohol inks and White Resin Colorant in different ways to create mini oceans with these fun and versatile resin jewelry supplies. Every piece will be unique, each technique a new adventure in resin crafting!  

Please let me know how yours turn out, photos are always welcome :)

Here are the piece I made using the No-Residue Resin Backer Film with open-back donue beads:
