The materials

ResArtDesigns is a small batch, sustainable and environmentally aware eco-resin jewellery & homewares business based on the Sunshine Coast, Qld Australia.

ResArtDesigns uses bio-resin (which is partly derived from industrial waste product) sourced from Australian company Adelaide Moulding & Candle Supplies, & 100% recycled & sustainable Australian made Sterling Silver 935 sourced from Palloys is used in all silver chains & hand formed earring hooks.

Triple Plated Gold chains sourced from Australian company Transglobal Trading are used in gold chain selections.

Items are wrapped in sustainable No Issue tissue paper and,  where possible, re-cycled or recyclable packaging is used for shipping.

Recycled Kraft paper gift boxing options are also  available.

The process

Foliage is naturally dried ( one – two weeks) & embedded and resin is hand mixed & poured into selected moulds.

Pigment & mica are hand selected and resin is hand mixed & poured into selected moulds.

Pieces are let to cure over 48 hours.

Sanding is done on each piece through several grits, followed by buffing & polishing.

Hand crafted earrings hooks are attached to earrings, chain is applied to necklaces.

Rest assured there can be no exact mix of pigments ~ no two leaves or flower petal will ever be quite the same.

Your item will be uniquely yours & yours alone.

The maker

Hi! I’m Nina, owner/maker of ResArtDesigns. I’ve been dabbling in resin since 2016. I’ve always loved being creative, and resin has opened up a whole new world of creativity for me. 

 

 

 

 

About me

I’m a ’76 model human, and have been in our sunny Qld state since I was two years old. Before that, I was born and raised for the first 2 years of my life in Adelaide.. in a caravan! My folks made the move to Qld in ’78, and settled on a sheep & cattle property in Warwick, Darling Downs. I have sketchy memories of sliding down the sheep Shute and helping Dad collect the wool and brush it out.

In ’81 we moved to Beerwah, to another farm.. this time trees! We had Macadamias, custard apples, pineapples, lichee and avocados. I disliked the avos & custard apples back then, but I absolutely LOVE avos now (still don’t really like custard apples tho!)
