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.
