We are using resin with existing jewelry findings to create unique, one of a kind pieces. You can see a few pieces in our Etsy Store and in our Facebook Shop ready for purchase, with more coming soon.
The affect we are going for is the contrast of the metal color against the background, and the purely clear resin resulting in the items embedded in the settings seeming to float in the setting.
In the West, precious stones are diamonds, sapphires, rubies and emeralds. All other stones are considered semi-precious stones. However, this is a commercial based classification and was a distinction that marketers created years ago which gives the false impression that precious stones are more valuable than semi-precious stones.
