Step 1: Supplies
glow stones (I get mine from glowstones.com)
charms or whatever you would like to use.
remember to clip the loop off the charms with wire cutters.
Step 2: Go to Work
Design your pendant.
I like to add the glow stones first. you can add a lot or just a few. It's up to you.
Add your charm of choice
Mix your resin. Follow the directions on the bottle. Each resin is different.
You can find resin at Menards or any craft store. I love the little-windows.com one because it's very low bubbles. Less work.
Slowly pour your resin in the mold. Let sit 10 minutes then pop or scoop out any bubbles you see.
Let is set about 12 hours.
Step 3: Finish
Once set, remove from mold. It should pop out. If not, it might need a bit more time. Trim edges with scissors or you can add a thin layer of resin on top to give it a nicer finish. Glue bail on the back. I like using E6000.
Step 4: Ideas
You can makes these into key chains, necklaces, ornaments or pull chain for your kids room like I do.
