Experimentation With Resin Jewelry

Some of my first 'successful' experiments with resin jewelry. How I could get a 1 to 1 ratio of resin to hardener wrong, I don't know, but some of my first batch were sticky. Maybe I mixed improperly. Anyway, these ones worked out rather well. The edges a little rough despite sanding. The resin is just so damn messy, I didn't feel like making up more just to finish/smooth the edges. However, I had done another batch after the ones in the mold were finished in order to 'dip' them in, for a glossy coating/finish...
 

I only had silver bails... looks odd on the 'steampunk' one with the bronze chain. 
I need to 'antique' it somehow.
