Each piece is created using eco resin created from renewable resources, turning waste bi-products from the bio-fuel industry into new material which can be used for a variety of applications.
This resin has exceptional properties; in most cases it is superior to current petroleum based Epoxy Resins without some of the “nasties” such as the bis-phenols* (BPA’s) in traditional epoxy resins and no added solvents.
Resin is extremely lightweight and durable, but can be scratched by sharp objects – see Product Care page for cleaning guidelines and re-polishing service available.
The silver used in earring hooks and necklace bails comes from 100% sustainable and recycled silver. The supplier I buy from uses the latest technology in their furnaces, recycled water in their cooling systems and recycled packaging for their orders.
*With regard to homewares and use with food please bear in mind that this resin has NOT been tested for food grade certification. However, once fully cured the resin is totally inert. The chemical reaction will be totally finished and it is essentially just a hard plastic such as purchased in any chain store. Therefore, it is up to you the buyer whether you use for food or not. It is recommended if you do use with food to only use with cold or room temperature foods. Do not heat in oven or microwave.
