Here is my latest project for the Ice Resin Design team I hope you like it
Bon Wee 
media mixage jewelryInstructions:
First, I painted the bottom of the bezel with a small amount of  the cream paint and allowed it to to dry.
I mixed up equal amounts of ICE Resin part A and B stir well for 2 minutes then let it sit for 5 minutes so the air bubbles will dissipate, and then poured the resin into the bezel –a small amount.
I then cut out the word Paris, and angled it so it is part in the resin and part out.
I used the Artisan X-plorer to and Fleur de Lis die to cut a tranparency.
When the resin has set, I added the transparency and adhered it to the top with a small amount of resin to the top edge.
I added a bead accent to the back of the bezel using some more ICE Resin as a glue. Add chain and beads to finish you piece.
