Introduction: Cool Crafty Chemistry Earrings

About: I enjoy creating 3D models of pcb circuits. I am a student studying Electrical Engineering. I will share some cool projects & try out a few.

Hello Chemistry & Science fans.

Chemistry can be a tough subject, but there are lots of ways to remember the elements. Whether you learn from singing the Chemistry song (and yes there is a song), cramming, genuinely studying, or creating craft goodness and just so happen to remember them all, it can be done.

In this Instructable I will show you how I created these one of a kind crafty Chemistry earrings and learned a few elements along the way!

Step 1: Materials

In this project I used

  1. Printer paper
  2. Transparent paper (Staples)
  3. Resin (Amazing Casting Resin)
  4. Earring hooks (Wal-Mart)

Step 2: Design

Let's begin!

  1. Print out a Periodic Table Chart *Use a laser printer. If you use an inkjet ink will run once submerged in resin.
  2. Cut the elements of the table into individual squares. You can cut only the ones you want for your earrings. I choose Copper & Tellurium. These to appear to spell the word cute :) Play around with the tiles and come up with a few two tile words of your own.
    • Example: Lv U (Livermorium Uranium), Lu V (Lutetium Vanadium), O Mg (Oxygen Magnesium), Be Er (Beryllium Erbium)...Okay enough with the Chemistry lessons.
  3. Next you'll want to cut out a square from the transparent paper, slightly larger than you Periodic Tile. You will use this for the frame. This gives the earring a see-through glass type look.
  4. Now glue your tile onto the clear square. Try as best to center it. *Check picture two.
  5. Lastly, mix resin and coat each square tile. Once dry drill a tiny hole at the tops of both tiles then affix earring hooks by manipulating the hook. *jewelry tool

I can't wait to see what you'll come up with. I look forward to your comments :D

    I just found this; I don't have a laser printer and resin, but now I'm thinking about how I could make something similar with what I have... If I use the Au and Ag squares, I'll have gold and silver earrings for cheap! XD

    This is awesome! I love that you used Copper and Tellurium as the elements!
