DIY Jewelry Inspiration- Raku Watercolor

by Jeanne Holland April 04, 2023

In this blog post, we will explore how to make stunning jewelry using Vintaj natural brass bezels, watercolor paper, and the Raku patina effects kit. UV resin adds dimension to the watercolor mixed media jewelry with beautiful swirling colors and metallic accents. The versatility of this technique allows for endless possibilities in terms of color combinations and design. Whether you prefer bold and bright hues or more subdued pastels. See the full techniques here.


The sections we chose for the Victoriana bezel have floral undertones. The earrings have shades of pink ranging from soft blush to vibrant fuchsia. The pendant with faded blue creates a more subdued and ethereal feel, with hues of blue ranging from light baby blue to dusty indigo. There are so many color combinations you can get out of one watercolor. 


This stunning pendant looks like a miniature Martian landscape with its intricate details and breathtaking colors. The shades of red, orange, and brown and metallic accents add a touch of elegance to the pendant, giving it a sophisticated yet otherworldly feel. This pendant is truly a unique and awe-inspiring piece of jewelry that will capture the imagination of anyone who sees it.

This pendant that captures the breathtaking beauty of a sunset with its stunning swirls of pink and orange, mixed with white gold accents. The glossy layer of UV resin magnifies the intensity of the colors and creates a warm and inviting feel, evoking the sense of calmness and tranquility. A little graphite pencil on the rim of the bezel helps create a guide for cutting out your paper. 

Get started with a bundle of bezels, chain, ear wires and jump rings!
