I stumbled upon Little Windows, the brainchild of Fran Valera. She not only got into photo jewelry but went on to develop her own line of non-toxic resin which will work on delicate items such as photos. (You'll still need good ventilation). I also liked her special mats used in the doming process.
Her project ideas and tutorials are clever and fun. She has many so I will just select my favorites. Shown above are her bendy rings. Her video tutorial shows how she embeds photo cut outs into resin molds and most importantly, how she curves the resin.
The 3-D Resin Butterflies video tutorial shows how to form a fabulous necklace.
Her layering technique video tutorial shows the use of photos, fabric or paper to get 3-D results.
One of her cleverest tutorials is how to create faux dichroic glass using resin. Just check out her video tutorial for the aptly named dichro resin jewelry. Simply stunning!
