How to make a donut necklace and earrings:
Spray the donut-shaped holes in your mold with the mold release and conditioner. Set this aside to dry. It will need to dry completely before you pour in your mixed resin.
Mix your two-part clear casting epoxy. You will need to carefully measure and mix equal portions of each of the components. This needs to be mixed really well. Be sure to follow all directions that are included in the package.
Now it is time to add some sprinkles! Add non-pariels to your mixed resin until it is really, really full. You will need to add a lot to make sure they do not settle out in your molds.
Then, make sure the conditioner is dry in your molds and pour your mixture into both the necklace and earring holes. You will need to pop any bubbles that rise to the surface. Set on a level surface and allow to cure overnight.
Then pop the donut shapes out of your mold. Use a jewelry adhesive to add earring posts to the back of each earring. You will also need to add a necklace hook to the back of the larger donut piece. Then add the chain to your donut necklace to complete your set.
Everyone will love a donut charm necklace as this project makes a great gift idea. Know someone who loves donuts? Make a variety of these! You can add other things to the resin mix as well. Think glitter, shaped sprinkles, paint, and so much more.
