How to Make A Fast Resin and Wood Necklace or Cheating With Resin

I have been clipping and watching dozens of projects featuring resin and wood.  
Like many of you, I love the combination of the natural woods with the colored resins.

However, this type of a project is one requiring 
lots of time, 
some sawing and sanding (which I do not like doing) 
and a pretty decent drill
to make holes through some thin materials.

You can imagine my delight when I saw some pendants I would have aspired to make on one of my favorite sites for bezels.
Trust me, I know.  You want to know where I got these.  Here is the link.  
They cost about $1 each so I ordered a bunch to see if they were even half as good as they appeared in the picture.

They are better.

I strung them into a collar necklace in just a few minutes.
Honestly, I don't think I could have made them this pretty.

The other colors are just as spectacular.

So today's post is about resin.
It is the first time I cheated and used pendants 
created by a machine instead of my own hands.

I am showing you these resin and wood pendants as an Affiliate.
I did not receive any free or discounted product.

They do look quite lovely! I have been watching Peter Brown on YouTube who does all kinds of mad things with different types of resin and then uses tools in his wood shop to finish them. Nothing like using a lathe to turn a chunk of resin and crayons!

I hate to sand anything, especially indoors in winter. I need a garage.
