Halloween Glowing Glitter Globe

Tonight's project is a glowing orb!



I'm using glow in the dark glitter mixed with orange and black glitter.


 Mix up a batch of EasyCast Resin and mix the glitter in.
*ETI recommends wearing gloves for your safety* Gloves also help keep your nails nice! 


Pour the resin into a ball mold like this one I made with a grape!
Tutorial here: http://resinjewelry.blogspot.com/2013/09/fall-ow-me-into-autumn-day-4-molding.html


Let this set for 24- 72 hours until hardened.
 

Once you have your glitter globe to turn it into a necklace you'll need a necklace cord, eye pin, jump ring, bead cap, E-6000, and pliers.


Coil the end of the eye pin....


Bend the eye pin just above the coil....


Slide the bead cap onto the eye pin...
 

Clip of some of the eye pin off and coil the rest into a loop.


Attach the cap with E-6000...


Nestling the globe in the sand will help hold it still for the glue to dry.
Let the E-6000 set for 24 hours for maximum adhesion.


Attach the globe to the necklace with a jump ring. It will have a great sparkle in the light...


and glow bright in the night!!
