Resin Inlay in a Day

Course Description

About this course

Add color and style to your jewelry with resin inlay! This fascinating process will allow students to expand their color palette and design repertoire without the use of a kiln. Students will be taken step-by-step through this procedure, beginning with color experimentation, pouring and curing the resin, as well as putting a final finish on a completed piece of jewelry. Students will begin by making a simple metal sample to understand and practice the technique and will then spend the remainder of the workshop fabricating a unique design to fill with colorful resin inlay. Learn how to quickly add absolutely any color you can think of to your design process and walk away with a vivid piece of jewelry! 

Meet the Instructor

Wendy Jo New

"Growing up, I always was mesmerized by sparkling gemstones and metals and I often incorporate something illuminating into my designs. Whether or not I intricately plan a jewelry piece in advance of producing it or just spontaneously fabricate one as I go along, the result is inevitably something that is unique with a contemporary flair that complements, rather than overwhelms, a wearer. When designing jewelry or other metal work, I always think about whether I would wear it, use it, and/or display it. Anyone who knows me sees a reflection of me in what I design.

I produce fine contemporary jewelry and other metal designs primarily in the precious metals of silver, argentium, gold, and/or palladium. These are often further defined with the addition of texturing, gemstones and other unique lapidary, or resin inlay. I also manufacture photo-etched metal cover plates which may be attached to journals or framed. Larger etchings are used in buildings as entry door logos, addresses, and the like.

In addition to participating in art shows, sales, and doing commission work, I love providing instruction in jewelry design and metal fabrication.  My work can be seen and purchased at galleries and stores, as well as in my own online store.  Designing and fabricating engagement and wedding bands and other jewelry, often with people's stones, is particularly meaningful to me."
