My sister Cherie picks up jewelry items for me at garage sales, flea markets etc. Every time I go to visit she has baggies or boxes of surprises for me! This little duck was in the last box of goodies I received and was perfect for my Christmas ornament!
Thank you sis!!!

Materials:
ICE Resin®
Rue Romantique Medium Feathered Oval KR110
ICED Enamels® Angled Brushes IE-BRUSHES
ICED Enamels®- Raspberry Relique IE-SLK1004-Rasp
ICED Enamels® Medium, 1 oz. IE-medium
ICED Enamels® Shattered Opal
Christmas duck pin and bow ear stud
Pink cord

Technique:
Cut off backs from pins and/or earrings. File down so element will lay flat in bezel.
Use paint brush to apply a thin layer of ICED Enamels medium to the bezel. Sprinkle on Raspberry Relique powder then pour the excess powder back into the jar. Heat with heat gun until starts to bubble. Allow to cool. Sprinkle a small amount of Shattered Mica into the bezel. Prepare ICE Resin, apply a thin layer of resin then place duck and bow where desired. Use tooth pick to drip a little resin around elements. Allow to dry 6 to 12 hours.
Use pink cord, string, or ribbon for a hanger.
