Something For "Friday Ice"

Hi,  a short post tonight, but I'd like to share a creation with you which I made for Thespa's linky party,  "Friday ICE", over at the Vintiquities Workshop
"Friday ICE" is where you can link up your Ice Resin creations.  I'm absolutely loving using Ice Resin and have a few more pieces to share with you over the coming weeks, however this is one that I finished over the weekend:

I used a little green patina gilding wax around the edges of the base of the bezel, poured a little resin inside then added a piece of torn bookpage (a bit smaller than the bezel).  A little more resin, then an antique bronze swallow pendant on top and a word tile at the bottom.  If you look at the top right corner, the book page is teased up a bit so it's not flat against the base.  A little antique gold glass glitter was added into the top layer of resin, also on the top right corner.  I added a split ring to the bail and a lobster clasp, two pieces of chain attached with jump rings and a couple of charms.  I thought this would be nice hung from the zipper of a handbag - then my daughter saw it and claimed it, lol, so it's gone already!
Thank you for taking the time to visit - I really do appreciate it.

Bye for now

I love it ! I've got resin too but haven't already tried to use it in jewelery. It's nice to see that you create jewels now, you're an artist with many talents !!! Val

Clever daughter to lay claim to this beautiful piece of resin art.
That little touch of glitter is a beautiful touch indeed.
