How to Make Resin Earrings

You found the perfect dress for date night, but when you went to the store to find earrings to match, they didn’t have the right color. Wouldn’t it be so nice if you could make your own? The answer is yes, and it is so much easier than you think. Earrings made from resin are light weight and customizable. If you prefer dangle earrings, you can make them on hooks. You prefer post earrings? You can make them on posts.

Check out these tutorials for how to make earrings from UV resin and from 2 part epoxy resin.

How to Make Earrings from UV Resin

UV resin is simple to use and fast to cure. From start to finish you can have a pair of earrings in less than 30 minutes, and that includes clean up time. Just use your favorite glitters, confetti add-ins, or mica powders to make custom earrings to match any outfit you would like. Here is how you can make them.


  • UV Resin- I used Mr. Resin 250g UV Resin (found on Amazon)
  • UV Lamp
  • Silicone Jewelry Molds- I used Paxcoo Resin Molds for Jewelry (found on Amazon)
  • Mixing Cup and Stirrers
  • Tweezers or a Tooth Pick
  • Gloves and Goggles
  • Mica Powder- I used LEOBRO-Mica Powder (found on Amazon)
  • Glitter
  • Earring Making Accessories kit (mine came with the Paxcoo Resin Molds kit)
  • Needle Nose Pliers
  • Grill Lighter



  1. Set up your work area and put on your goggles and gloves.
  2. In your mixing cup, add a small amount of mica powder. Remember a little goes a long way, and if you add to much, you chance your resin not curing properly under the UV lamp.
  3. Now add some glitter to your cup to give your earrings some texture.
  1. Squeeze in enough resin to the mixing cup to fill the proper earring molds. I chose to do 2 different sized shapes to make my earrings.
  2. Mix together your resin, glitter, and mica and then pour them into the appropriate molds. Be sure to make double of each shape you choose.
  3. Using your tweezers or tooth pick, run it along the edge of your shape. Try getting the resin mixture in all of the corners and remove any large bubbles.
  1. Use your grill lighter to run the flame over the surface of the resin to remove any remaining bubbles. Be careful not to hold the flame too close, or in one spot for too long. Your resin will burn if not careful.
  2. Place the UV lamp over the top of your filled resin molds. Cure according to your package instructions. I cure mine from the exposed side, then flip the mold over to cure from the under side of the mold.
  3. Remove the pieces from the mold. If they are still sticky after unmolding, place them back under the UV lamp for an additional minute or so, or until they are no longer tacky.
  1. On the back side of the top shape you are using for your earring, place a dot of UV resin, then place the flat disk of an earring post on the resin dot. One in place, cure it under your UV lamp. Repeat for the other earring. (If you prefer, you can glue on the posts using E6000 or super glue.)
  2. Using a jump ring and needle nose pliers, attach the top shape with the earring post to your bottom resin shape using the small holes the mold created in the resin. Make sure to orient the pieces in the correct forward facing direction.
  3. To finish, add a stopper on the back of the post.

This really is a fun, easy and addicting craft to make. Because UV resin has a long worktime, and a fast cure time, it is hard to mess up. It is so much fun that you will end up making more jewelry than you know what to do with. It’s a good thing the finished products make great gifts.

How to Make Earrings from 2 Part Epoxy Resin

2 part epoxy resin may take longer to cure, but it still makes a good quality earring and is a bit cheaper to purchase than UV resin. Just don’t let it intimidate you. You can still use all the same add-ins, glitters, and mica powders that you used with the UV resin. Here is how you can make earrings using a A+B resin.


  • 2 Part Epoxy Resin (A+B Resin)- I used CRAFT RESIN Epoxy Resin Kit
  • Gloves and Goggles
  • Mixing Cups and Stir Sticks
  • Jewelry Molds – I used Paxcoo Resin Molds for Jewelry (found on Amazon)
  • Jewelry Making Accessories Kit
  • Glitter
  • Mica Powders -I used LEOBRO-Mica Powder (found on Amazon)
  • Tweezers
  • Grill Lighter



  1. Set up your work area and put on your goggles and gloves.
  2. Mix a small amount of resin in your mixing cup, according to the directions on your resin packaging.
  3. After your resin is mixed, and a small amount of mica powder and glitter to a separate mixing cup.
  1. Pour enough of the mixed resin into the mica powder / glitter mixture that will fill the earring molds of your choice and mix well.
  2. Pour the resin/ glitter/ mica mixture into the molds. Make sure to get the resin all the way to the edges. If you see any large bubbles along the edge, you can use your tweezers or a tooth pick to pop them and scoot the resin into place.
  3. Once your mold is filled, use your grill lighter to remove surface bubbles by lighting the flame and gently waving it back and forth over the surface. Be careful not to get too close or stay in one place to long as it can damage your resin or mold.
  1. Sit aside in a warm dry place to cure according to your box instructions. Mine cured in 24 hours.
  2. When they have cured, remove them from the mold. For this project I used a moon mold that has a hole at the top. To this hole I added a jump ring. Be sure to repeat on the second earring.
  3. To the jump rings, add the earring hooks. You may have to bend the bottom loop of the hook to face the earring in the right direction. This should be the last step of making the earrings.

Though 2 part epoxy resin does not have as long of a worktime, you can still get a lot done in 30-45 minutes. Just beware. Once the resin starts to thicken, it is very hard to work with. My suggestion is to work in small batches, and make a plan before you mix your resin. Keep a notebook and know ahead of time what add ins, what micas, and shapes you want to use. A plan and a well staged work area can make a lot of difference.
