Blue Crush by Cindy Cima Edwards

A collage image (Belles Dames Francaise), German Glass Glitter in Carnivale gold plus a hint of pink set off this pendant.

Once I finished the silver heart bezel I felt the colors and shape called out for a romantic feel.  I created beaded links of crystal pearls and crystal bicones to complete the look.

Floating Memories by Jen Crossley

ice resin

I have always been drawn to words and letters in my work. Here I have used the Belle Dames papers which is sealed. I also added another layer of ICE Resin® when I added the corner flower paper to make it look like it was floating above in the rectangle bezels (one of my favorites). My motto in my work is also to keep it fairly simple in its design.

I love this close up of this closure it is also one of my favorite pieces in Susan Lenart Kazmer’s Art Mechanique collection of bezels as well. It adds a beautiful feature to any necklace.I choose to put this closure on the front of the chain so it is a feature you cant hide anything that beautiful at the back of your head now can you !

I love to work small so I added these tiny hobnail bezels with a little feature in each one — a Mother of Pearl button, a piece of the flower paper, a tiny number. I always look at most things as a frame to be used with a special little treasure inside.

Making an Open Back Bezel for a French Cuff

Hello! Pamela Huntington from the ICE Resin® Mixed Media Design Team here to share a technique this Tuesday… or whatever day you happen to be viewing the video I made.

I love making French cuffs. there is something I enjoy about the look and feel of these on my wrist. It occurred to me that the lovely bezels in Susan’s collection would be a lovely center piece for one of my cuffs. Here is a little tutorial on how I added the bezel to the French cuff…

Mixed Media: Sweet Heart o’ Mine by Pamela Huntington

Immediately, I pulled this torso from my collection of found objects knowing that it would be the perfect place for the heart bezel.

Lexi Grenzer’s Caged Frieda, a Tribute

The sweet and strong and powerful Frida Kahlo has such a lingering story. She is loved by many, and her sorrow and pain or greatly known to all that follow her.

My pendant today was meant to reflect how she often felt in life, caged by her casts, by her love, by her gender…these were all her private cages.

iceresinIn creating this pendant, I realized that the pendant in reverse showed her without cage, and I thought that very fitting. In her passing, she became free of all that held her back, and she finally found peace. This was my little way to honor the amazing art she created and my great appreciation of her.

ICE Resin® and a Open Back Shield Bezel are at the foundation of this necklace.

Glitter – a lesson in over-abundance

hobnail bezel Susan Lenart Kazmer
Hello. Carol here, the one who lurks in the background of the ICE Queen Zine, and very occasionally leaves the computer to make fun stuff with ICE Resin®.

If you are familiar with adding images to bezels and pouring resin, then the video link is not for you!

However, if you love sparkles (I am guilty, guilty, guilty!) and are new to using glitter in your designs, then this video might be for you!

I used a fine gold glitter and I did not think I used much, but the image was delicate to begin with and as you can see, the glitter obscured the face.

The bezel and image do look pretty in the sunlight and might wind up on the hat band of a summer straw hat, but surely leaves a lot to be desired when viewed indoors and as such, is not going to be the focal point of a necklace or bracelet.

I am bummed, but adding too much glitter is a mistake I will not make again.
