New in The Shop

I am pretty excited about these cute little sea shell necklaces I have made! They’re the perfect accessory to a summer time outfit.

All of them are made with mini shells I collected from the beach last year.

Whenever we go to the beach, there is always what I call the “crunchy layer”, which are little deposits of tiny shell fragments and stones buried under the sand or in a strand along the beach. I love digging through them and searching for mini seashells, and last year I had the great idea to make them into resin necklaces!

There are only four in my shop right now, but I have plenty more I am hoping to add later this week, so keep an eye out!

New in the Shop

I just added a bunch of these cute bonsai magnets to my Etsy Shop!
I did a variety of ones with a black background and some with a mint background. I can’t decide which ones I like best!

I really love these bonsai stamps, they’re definitely one of my favorites to make. Maybe it’s because it was these stamps in particular that made me dream up my resin business!  It all started when Steven found them on a box at work and brought them home to me because he thought I would like them. And I did!  I liked them so much in fact, that I held on to them for months and months trying to figure out exactly what to do with them. I ended up ruining my original bonsai stamps in a resin disaster, but I found more on ebay and have made plenty of magnets and necklaces to make up for my ruined ones. 

Do any of you guys have Etsy shops?  If so, post a link and I’ll follow you!

My resin jewelry!

I’m so excited about my resin jewelry! I’ve always thought resin was neat, and I just wanted to encase everything I could in resin. I had no idea what I would do with it, but I wanted to do it anyway. I bought resin molds and supplies years ago, but never really got around to doing anything with it. But this year over the Christmas break from school, and then work, I started putting random things in resin with the vague idea that it could be jewelry. Most of it turned out looking preposterous. (Maybe I’ll post some photos of my failed resin attempts sometime!) But then I came across these really cute bonsai stamps I had been saving until I found just the right thing to do with them. Well, I just found it. Resin stamp necklaces for me, my mom and my sister for Christmas! I was so excited that I just went for it, without practicing with other stamps first, and they ended up looking terrible. I was pretty bummed out, but that’s when I got the idea to see if I could order more of them online, and I found that you can buy 100s of stamps for a couple bucks! And that’s where I got my idea to make and sell necklaces, not only with stamps, but small versions of my photos, too.

I’m so glad I had the idea to start doing this, it’s so much fun! Each little piece is unique and so pretty.

Here are photos of some of my favorite necklaces, plus one of me wearing the one I made myself.

I also make resin magnets and am going to start making coasters too, which I am super excited about!
All of these necklaces plus more can be found in my Etsy shop, so have a look!
