After a recent job, Peter Brown was left with some scrap wire that he just couldn’t bring himself to throw away, so he decided to turn it into an amazing resin bracelet. Rather than casting it in a mold, he chose to cast it into a solid block that he then drilled, sawed, turned, and sanded it into a spectacular piece of jewelry.

If you’d like to try a similar project with materials that you just can’t bear to part with, and you don’t have a workshop full of tools, then take a look at this recent tutorial from our very own Haley Pierson-Cox for making resin sewing thread and embroidery floss pendants, because when it comes to using up odds and end, resin is our friend!
