Why Hollow Resin?
I love working with different materials. With resin it was the colour possibilities that first attracted me. The most usual ways for jewellers to use resin are to set it in a mould or to pour into a retaining structure (often silver). My own work involved filling shaped silver wires with resin. Recently I have been experimenting with making three dimensional items. The hollow pieces I am currently working on allow me to create surface pattern all around the piece. I also feel that light reflects differently through them than if they were solid shapes. I am looking forward to sharing some of my experiments here.
