It's Giveaway Time Again! Resin Pendant Duo!

I cannot believe I have over 150 followers now!  Thank you to everyone who reads my little blog! I have been blogging since May 2010 and I have to say that I am having the most fun meeting other vintage-enthusiasts, reading your blogs, sharing comments, and learning more about living the vintage life! Again, thank you all so much!

So, in honor of you all and in celebration of 150+ followers, I am doing another giveaway! This giveaway features two handmade, poured resin pendants made by me! I started making resin jewelry over a year ago and I enjoy it a lot!

The first pendant is a small rectangle (just under two inches long by 1.5 inches wide by 1/4 inch thick ). It is infused with white, opalescent glitter and two shimmery atomic starburst decals :

The second pendant is a heart-shaped piece made with letter beads that read "Aloha."  The heart measures over 2 and 1/2 inches long and is over 2 and 1/2 inches wide and is over 1/4 of an inch thick. I incorporated a glittery pink hibiscus decal in a sea of bright, orange-pink glitter. I think this piece would be perfect for that tiki/Hawaiian-theme party on your schedule! Also, for all you gals going to Viva, imagine wearing this pendant at the tiki pool party! Just put that flower in your hair, don your kamehameha dress or that tiki-print playsuit, and strut your stuff!
Both pendants come with attached sterling silver bails so they can be suspended on a chain. They also have been coated in a high-gloss varnish to better protect the pendants' surface and to give them an extra bit of shine!

The giveaway begins today, Friday the 21st, and will end Tuesday the 25th. To participate, simply follow my blog (if you don't already) and leave a comment on this post. The lucky winner will be announced on Wednesday the 26th!

Have fun and good luck!


  1. I'm a new follower, and so glad I found you! I would love either pendant because they're both so pretty...but the Aloha one was made for me!

  2. Tikimama,

    Thank you so much for the comment and for following my blog! I had fun making the Aloha one! I had yet to use the orange-pinky glitter (I bought it last winter) and as soon I saw the pink hibiscus, I knew I had to finally use that glitter!

  3. Congrats on the followers! Yippy! I love that you can make resin jewelery. I love the glitter! When are you going to start making clip on earrings and bangles? he he he

    Much love,


  4. Dollie,

    Thanks for the comment and compliment! I can make earrings yet bangles are still a work in progress! The molds can be tricky but earrings, rings, and pendants are easy! I need to research where to find better quality molds for bangles.

  5. Count me in! It looks like confetti Lucite and I'm a sucker for confetti lucite!

  6. boy you are a talented lady! Well done on the new followers. Count me in too, agree with Kim looks like confetti lucite and I'm also a sucker for it!

  7. Kim,

    I used opal confetti glitter! It comes in a tube for like $2.99 at Michael's. I love the way it captures the light!

  8. Fiona,

    I just used opal confetti glitter. I love the round shape and how each tiny piece flashes either pink, orange, yellow, or violet! The effect is like opal for sure! Thanks for the compliment! I just love working with resin! It is addicting once you start!

  9. Very cute pendants
    I have to learn how to make this stuff, I know I would have a blast.
    Congrats on over 150 followers. =)

  13. I think a tutorial on resin jewelry would be a great blog hint hint hint.

  14. Melzaelf,

    Thanks for the comment! I think I am going to do a tutorial on how to cast resin/make jewelry! It is a fun hobby and the possibilities are endless! You can make bangles, pendants, earrings, and rings!

  15. Living Vintage,

    I think a resin jewelry tutorial is a must-do post! I love making my own jewelry! If I want a particular style or piece, I can just make it! Resin jewelry is easy and the only hard part is learning to be patient! (its all about layering)
