Jamie Dougherty shares how you can include feather with ICE Resin® to create an organic touch in your jewelry.

Supplies: ICE Resin® Iced Enamels Relique Powders: Tarnished Bronze and German Silver, Iced  Enamels Medium, Art Mechanique Rectangle hobnail bezel, a paint brush, and a feather.

Tip: Paint a little bit of ICE Resin on the front and back of the feather so as not to create air bubbles.
