Today, I am honored to be joined by Ashley Lauwereins, the talented marketing specialist for the bead and jewelry groups here at Interweave. While Ashley is a gifted metalsmith, she is new to resin. Here, she shares her experience using resin for the first time. Hats off to you, Ashley--your bezels turned out fabulous!

Working at Interweave, it's hard not
to be inspired by all the products and techniques surrounding me. You may not
know my name, but you know me-- I'm the voice behind all your bottom ads, the
copy for recent products, and the "Ashley" that posts on Facebook occasionally.
While I've written about resin, seen
projects that use the technique, and been urged to try it, this was one
technique that I hadn't gotten around to. I'm comfortable with my torch, saw,
wire, and beads, but resin was always one of those that I hadn't committed to.
