If you've not considered using resin clay before, maybe this lovely tutorial by Mylene Hillam of Mill Lane Studio will convince you!  She designed this resin clay stud earrings tutorial which is reminiscent of Princess Diana's blue and diamond sapphire ring!

Resin clay work is an easy way to make pavĂ© inspired jewelry as the surface is covered with rhinestones.  Resin clay is also a 2 part epoxy so you have to mix both parts to activate the hardening reaction.

Mylene also attached stud earring findings behind and used the loops to hang the dangles. Great variation!
