I don't make my own jewelry, but my mother makes hers. She's a doctor but when she isn't working during the week, she trains to be a silversmith. I'd say she makes 90% of the jewelry that she wears and when everyone sees it, they think it's designer and incredibly expensive.

acrylic.. that is probably "acrylic resin"
it's a liquid and dries super hard..
i don't like the fact it is toxic though.. i'd like to be able to just work indoors and without a respirator

sometimes i make stuff from found objects or items from flea markets. since i no longer have access to soldering equipment, i have to use other methods to hold everything together, such as screws, wire, bezels, etc.

here are a couple things i have made.



and something completely different...
