Must get back to some quilling ...

... but in the meantime, I'm really getting hooked on this resin casting craft! Following on from the paperweights I've been making (see earlier posts) I thought I'd have a go at making some jewellery, too.  Here's a pendant cast in a mould that I created myself using a sea shell pressed into a lump of plasticine.  I mixed gold glitter into the resin before pouring it into the mould, and inserted a drinking straw into the plasticine to make a hole for the leather thong to go through. I think it's turned out well - in fact, I'm wearing it right now as I type! Can't wait to make some more of these ...
