Skulls and crosses are featured on clothing and jewelry all year round. They are recognizable symbols associated with many different types of groups.
For this necklace designed by Dana Bickram, she featured two unique items from our catalog.
This antique silver cross has some beautiful detailing. Note, the reverse side is available for additional embellishment.
These glass skulls are fantastic and were lost in our catalog until we located them again in our warehouse. Czech black glass pearls complete this piece. You could also use a semi precious lava stone as a black bead.
If you want to think about other ways to use the cross, this sample for the I Love Resin blog shows you one simple but spectacular way to feature glitter and resin.

Pantone declared GREEN the colour for 2013, so I started reviewing my jewelry making stash to see what I already had. The result is this feather, kumihimo, fabric and chain necklace.
One of the feathers I covered in jewelry resin. This makes my feather very permanent. I really like the glassy surface.
I thought about just using the one feather for my necklace.
In the end though, I continued to add more feathers since they were already in my package.
These feathers are considered hat trims. With the addition of a crimp end they dangle quite nicely!
This is new gunmetal chain in the Dazzle-it family!
This Metal Complex bezel looks spectacular! It looks like I spent a long time creating it.
This may be the simplest resin project ever! John Bead sells these very special sheets of Decorative Sea Shell. This natural ocean shell laminate is acid free and peel and stick! All I did was cut a piece to fit my bezel and then I covered it with Jewelry Resin.
John Bead has Jewelry Resin in stock. Jewelry Resin was created for the jewelry making industry.
Professional results are easy to achieve with EnviroTex® Jewelry Resin! This product adds depth and crystal clear clarity like no other. It visually enhances the surface on which it is applied, resulting in brighter, deeper and more intense colors.
EnviroTex® Jewelry Resin has amazing bubble release.
It is easy and fun to use and has a pleasing citrus scent!

Resin Crafts blog has daily posts giving you ideas and tips to use this amazing resin.
This necklace features a pendant made by John Bead’s very own Daniel John.
While on a recent trip to a UK craft show, Daniel had an opportunity to walk the show and in one booth he did an experiment with embossing powders on a Metal Complex leaf blank. We both thought it turned out really well. However, embossing powders would not last very long on a necklace if it came into contact with other embellishments.
To keep the design on the blank permanently I glazed the surface with Jewelry Resin. One application of Jewelry resin is like 50 coats of varnish. This design is permanent now!
I am returning the pendant to Daniel today. I can’t return it on it’s own though. It needs to be on a necklace. Naturally, a kumihimo necklace is my first choice! I used gold and black rattail on the circle disk.
The new kumihimo findings make finishing this necklace so easy!
