Dead guy in resin

For a first attempt at a new idea I'm quite pleased! It went way better than my attempts at encasing clay in resin a couple years ago. :) It's not quite worthy of this many photos...but my new camera is so easy to shoot macro I can't help but share.

The clay bezel was a tedious pita to make, but I like it!

I epoxy'd on the bail and covered the back. Couldn't resist the mica powders.

The pendant is fairly small. Isn't the iridescent purple glitter pretty?! In person it sparkles like crazy. Love that! The skull is much smaller than the beads I sell on etsy. His eyes were a pita too...but I like them! :) The tiny star beads were a last minute addition. Are they too much?

I think that's my favorite blog post title of the year!

Great pendant too, btw.
