Create your very own utterly unique resin jewellery. Learn tips and tricks along the way bring out the best in this wonderful material .

About this Event

Join jewellery artist Maca Bernal hosted in New Plymouth by The Jewell and The Jeweller, for a day of sticky-icky fun and learn how to make wicked resin jewellery.

In the current pandemic atmosphere, with precious metal prices skyrocketing into the stratosphere, creative jewellery lovers are learning to use alternative materials. Let resin be the substance of your dreams!

What will you make?

Several fabulous pieces of resin jewellery like earrings, pendants or rings. Advanced students may choose to explore other forms of jewellery.

What will you learn?

The entire process, from selecting objects for casting in resin; making silicone moulds; mixing, applying pigments and pouring resins; embedding; curing and setting; finishing and attaching silver findings to the resin. And how to rock some fierce jewellery!

Each attendee will create more than one silicone mould and several resin copies to take home. You will craft at least one finished piece of resin jewellery; and will receive a comprehensive handout guide to continue producing resin parts for jewellery of your own.

What should you bring?

All materials are included in the ticket price. Tea and coffee will be provided. Bring along your own packed lunch and a thirst for bad-assery.

No Credit Card?

No Problemo — contact The jewell and the jeweller for other payment options.
