Course Overview

Add color and style to your jewelry repertoire with resin inlay! This live, virtual workshop will cover every step of the resin inlay process, from making your colors and inlaying them to curing and finishing your work.  After experimenting and creating a resin color palette, students will begin by making simple sterling silver earrings to understand and practice the technique. Students will then make another pair of earrings with embellishments allowing for more than one color to be added.  This is a great way to add absolutely any color you can think of to a piece of jewelry.
