    Frankly, I don’t know exactly what I would do with it.

    There seem to be a lot more people on here that are inclined to use it for memorials, keepsakes and whatnot, but I’ve just been interested in resin since I saw it used over a painted treatment to create a glossy surface on a piece of furniture on some HGTV makeover show aeons ago.

    I like a lot of different things that people do, and I’d like to experiment. I can’t really afford to buy something like this just to play with, so this would likely be one of the only ways I could try it out.

    I make jewelry, and while I enjoy the different things I make, I’m still trying to find the right medium for my creative voice.

    Most likely, I’d make mixed media pendants or brooches, using whatever strikes my fancy. So, I guess I’d use a variety of the bezel cups in different sizes and shapes.

    I love making hair jewelry-the resins last and last vs hair oils and hair products.

    I also go to the beach and collect shells, seaweed etc and make a coastal motif with the different pendents

    I’ve been making jewelry for about a year now and would love to try my hand at ICE Resin. Making charms etc with family pictures would be really cool.

    I just removed some dying roses from their vase last night. As I looked at the petals, I thought it would be really cool to coat a petal with ice resin. Drill a hole through the top, and turn it into a gorgeous pendant adding crystals or small stones for embellishment. What a way to keep a gift forever!

  1. I made a mold of a Rose from an old old button now I’d like to finish it. it really has the details. I have more of these buttons that are older than me, they were my Grandma’s. and maybe try few charms also.

    I have some great plastic shapes that I would like to decoupage victorian pictures or flowers on then make some unusually shaped cabs with the resin.

    A braclet for my best friend with pictures of her grandchildren, then play with pendants for myself. Love Ice Resin !!!

    I love beading and making my own jewelry. I’ve been wanting to try Ice Resin for awhile now but can never afford the kits to do so. I would make pendants out of the crushed sea shells I collected while in Mexico. Also, I would use the numerous flowers my two boys pick for me to make wildflower pendants and charm bracelets. Plus many other things. I have so many ideas running through my head right now!!!

  2. I keep telling everyone the next time someone tells me they can’t wait until summer I’m going to remind them of the HOT weather we’ve been having! That said, I would like to use the ice resin to make ice sickles. It would be a beautiful piece for this ice queen to wear!

    • Pamela Partlow
    • July 22, 2011

    I love pendants and would make them with photos of my family with seed beads embedded in the resin framing their faces.

  3. I LOVE Ice Resin!!! I use it for so many things. My favorite is taking found objects and making one of a kind bracelets, rings, necklaces and earrings for people. Specifically heirloom type pieces. I have taken momentos and treasured memories and encasing them in resin for special gifts.

    I would love to try Ice Resin to make school pendants – I work in a middle school and I think the students would love to wear them (along with the staff)!

    • Melissa Knodell
    • July 22, 2011

    I would use it to do bottle cap crafts like magnets and maybe jewelry. I’ve been wanting to buy some but haven’t gotten around to it!

    • Kate K

    I would love to make a pendant with a photograph of my late grandmother and a few pearls from her wedding gown.

    I have been wanting to try this for a while now. I would love to shrink down my 2 younger cousins art work (they are art students) and gift them with their mini art!

  4. I’d like to learn how to use resin and start designing cell phone cases for my daughter and I. She has lived in Colorado for 3 years and I miss her terribly. She’d think of me every time she saw or used her phone.

    What a cool giveaway! for a long time I’ve had the intention of making some pendant/rings/bracelets
    with the pictures of my 7 dogs, so i really hope i win so i can wear one every day of the week,

    • Holly G

    Very nice giveaway items! I would probably use the items to capture the essence of this summer and our travels. The collage sheets makes the process fun and easy too.

    • Jenifer Talbott

    I teach mixing and curing resin at a local bead shop. I use Ice works best for me. My favorite idea is to slowly cure layers on old photos.
    They can then be adhered to any flat pendant.
    Fun stuff!

    During my recent cross-country trip to visit my Son and Daughter-in-Law, they took me to the beach. It was wonderful seeing them, and the ocean again, so I would use pendant frames, all kinds, along with my finds from to the beach (small shells, sand, beach glass, etc), as well as small parts from the many pictures I took, to make keepsake memory pieces for all of us. Thanks so much, and I cannot wait to win, and get started on them!

    Thank you so much for this giveaway!! I have wanted to try ICE Resin for a long time, but as I am not working due to medical reasons, I couldn’t afford to buy any. Would absolutely LOVE to win this!!!

    • Judy Pennington

    Oops, hit the button so soon, I would love to make a charm bracelet with all 15 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren on it.

  5. I love ICE Resin. I’d like to design a bracelet or necklace using semi precious gemstone chips. I would crush the chips, arrange them in some of my handmade sterling silver findings & add the ICE Resign. Can’t wait to win & try this!

    • Desiree
    • July 23, 2011

    I’ve never used Ice Resin before, but am constantly inspired by the vintage designs I see done with filigree stampings and steampunk watch parts. I would love to try this out for myself.

  6. I just finished reading my new Bead Style Magazine and they featured some awesome resin designs. I’ve never worked with it before, but I would LOVE to try this new technique. I would use gemstone chips in the bezel pendants for a fabulous focal in a necklace. I would love to make a special gift for my mom with pics of all her grandkids in the bracelet. Soo many ideas!!

    • Marya Zajac

    I have old photos of several of my female ancestors. Grandmother, Ggrandmother, on both sides . I would use
    Nunn Design Antique Gold-Plated Brass Small Round Frame Adorno Bracelet..The photos would all be sepia, and I would add some vintage charms and small, coloured crystal dangles. I would make one for each of my 3 grand nieces who, unfortunately know little of their family history. I want them to know they come from a long line of strong women.

    I would love to make cameos for me and my sisters, we lost our mother who collected cameos and what a wonderful gift

    I would put pics of my puppy and also some of my scrapbooking embellishments in to make a uniquely mine item.

    I rescued a sweet little terrier puppy from the local shelter for my daughter. He was only a couple of months old and weighed 5#. He is growing up sooo fast and is now 12#! I found one of his baby teeth and would like to put it and his baby picture under resin for my DD 🙂

  7. I’ve been wanting to try resin but budget is tight. This would get me started. 🙂

    • Mary Reckmeyer

    There is a new baby in the family, I would love to use the ice resin with bezels and pictures of her to make bracelets and necklaces for the new mom, grammie and aunties.

  8. I would use the round patera bracelet along with images of all my nieces and nephews to create bracelets for my siblings for Christmas.

    • Sue McEvoy

    Wow! Haven’t tried this product yet. As I look outside, I’d like to preserve petals from my beautiful blue hydrangeas and string them with glass beads/pearls to compliment them. And thinking of the fall leaves and their colors, preserving them, too would be fun…hmmm…now you have me thinking!

  9. I happened upon a perfectly ‘preserved’ dragon fly the other day that had made its last flight. I was thinking about placing it inside of a Faux Bone washer and adding dangling embellishments to create a pendant

  10. Will be sooooo jealous of who ever wins this, if it isn’t me, just started working with resin and really love it. I have learned to make my own bezels and use quilling flowers, beads and other things. Whatever you add really pops. Waiting to try transfers, a little nervous about it but if I don’t try it I wont know if I can do it..Good Luck everyone.

  11. I would use a shell with a small hole in the top as a pendant, and use art sand to create a beach scene inside, covered with/protected by resin.

  12. This would be a great way to expand my jewelry making skills. I am planning to retire soon, and will have a great deal of time to spend on my crafting, (which I have been doing for many, many years.) I would use this kit to create one of a kind jewelry pieces, from earrings, bracelets, and necklaces.

    My daughter will be getting married in October. I would use black and white photos from her wedding to create a bracelet containing fabric from her dress and flowers from her bouquet. Possibly finish it off with Swarovski crystals. I will be making vintage brooch necklaces for the bridal party but this would be a special gift just for her to remember her wedding day.

  13. I would make several. A couple Christian theme necklaces, one for me and one for my BFF and one with my 2 darling grandbabies. The grandbabies would be attached to a charm bracelet that I wear with all my special charms.

  14. I would use the resin kit to make my mother and myself wearable family trees. I would take pictures of our family, including those that have passed away- human and canine alike, and make charms for necklaces that celebrate those that we love the most. I would accent each charm with beads and smaller charms that represent that person’s birthstone and theyre personality. Of course, it would be designed in such a way that future members of our family can be added and celebrated.

  15. I could save a picture of my husband and snip of his hair inside his wedding band as a locket. He is ill and it would make something I could hold forever. I also am new to resin and can’t wait to try it. I desparately need things ot keep me distracted right now so I would love a kit.

  16. I use the bowls of spooons to make collage pendants, along with more convetional collage and memory jewelry. Once the collage is made, I cast the desing in resin.

    • Anastasija

    I am determined to post a ‘happy, upbeat’ answer, grin. I had a nasty fall plus surgery, but hey, it could have been way worse!! So while I am temporarily housebound, now is a good time to learn the intricacies of ice resin and my hubby will be happy to park me in one spot so he can do his thing!! I have some collage ideas and would love to try them out.

    • Cheryl L

    ICE Resin – we could sure cool down in Austin Tx!
    I would use it to make some nice pretty rings.

  17. I would try something with feathers! They are sooo HOT right now!

    • July 23, 2011

    I took a class at my local Bead shop to learn how to do this. I really enjoyed it. My mind has been spinning with things I want to make! I definately would make something that included the work “believe” – that means a lot to me.

    This is a craft that I’ve been wanting to try for some time. The thought of winning a kit to get me started is very exciting. There are so many projects that I want to do, I’d have to eeny-meenie to pick just one!

    I saw a ring that had cupcake sprinkles embedded in it, and I’d love to make a cupcake shaped pendant with sprinkles for my daughter, who enjoys sprinkles on everything.
