This item is handmade in Ireland using natural materials. Therefore every piece is unique and might slightly differ from picture.
The process: Each step in the long process to create a botanical piece is taken with much precision and care. From finding special flowers, using different methods to dry them while maintaining their colours and shapes, casting a clear resin, sanding and polishing each item. Overall it can take up to a week to complete a piece of jewellery. But it is all worth it when you see the magical end product.
The resin I use is from Ecopoxy (www.ecopoxy.com), which is a plantbased, waterproof, UV resistant and non-toxic epoxy that is truly green. Eventhough it is more costly and it takes more effort to get a clear and bubble free end product than with regular (toxic) resins, I think it is worth the trouble for my own health and the planet's sake ✨🌿🌷
