Casting 3-D designs in clear resin

Greetings Everyone:

I want to cast rings and pendants of clear resin with delicate
objects suspended in the resin. I am also on a tight budget and not
too picky about results (i.e. don’t mind bubbles or long curing
times), as long as I can acheive a durable resin that conforms to
the mold shape and is as close to crystal clear as possible without
destroying fragile objects from shells to scraps of paper- is this
possible? I am most in need of advice or a good clear description of
how to use mold materials and what processes are involved. Are there
any metals that do not work well with resin? I was hoping to make
molds for pewter frames for the resin. Any info would be most
helpfull in bringing my idea to life. Thanks!!

This is my first posting, and I do realize a bit has been said
already on the subject of resin here, but instead of sifting through
so many records I decided to try asking about what I"m interested in
specifically. If you know of a previous discussion that deals with
this- do please point me in that direction.
