RESIN & PAINT

I am completely in love with resin work! Wood and other objects embedded in a rock-hard, glassy finish. I’m making necklaces and earrings, and who knows what else will emerge!

These pieces to the left were made by layering clear resin with Pebeo paints. Pebeo paints have special properties which make the paint morph into different shapes when they are placed (not painted) on a surface. The result is a vibrant, 3-D effect which is different, (as you can see) with each piece.

RESIN and WOOD

This is a collection of necklaces and earrings in which cocobolo wood was place into orange-tinted resin. I love rich, warm colors along with lots of shine!

Cocobolo wood is an uncommon wood from Central America, high in oils and varied striations. These were a true joy to bring to life.

Be sure to stop by at my upcoming shows to see these collections first-hand! They are very popular already, and I’m busy creating new collections featuring different wood in different colored resins.

RESIN and PINE CONES???

Take one tiny pine cone (or maybe it’s a fir or spruce cone) and sink it half way into wet resin. Wait for the resin to cure and harden. Take it to the band saw and slice the top of the pine cone off, and look what magic awaits! It’s like looking at the skeleton of the cone. It’s also like views of MRI slices. A fraction of an inch makes for a completely different view. I’ll be experimenting with more objects in the near future. Stay tuned!

I’ve made an entire line of these beauties, in blue, green, orange, clear, and magenta! They’re waiting for you!
