i dont see how it would cost that much to get started! i bought resin and molds (which of course i havent touched yet lol) for around 20 bucks. get a micheals/joanns/beverlys coupon and buy the small container of resin to play with before investing more money!

I'm not sure why you need to spend $7O either, but depending on what inclusions, and chains and findings you want it may make sense, but not for resin and molds alone.

If you can figure out a way to package up some extra time to sell in your shop, then I will be your first customer :)

And if you can afford to spend some money (I don't think it needs to be seventy dollars) to have fun with jewelry making then go for it. Just make sure to have fun!

sorry, just have to jump in here and say i was all gung ho about making resin jewelry. i dropped $80, and it turned out to be the wrong kind of resin. i felt really badly about it and abandoned the project. 80 bucks out the door :(
one day when i get more money, i'm going to try again.
