Gemstone Infusion Resin Pendants
In my first batch of experiments casting insects in resin, I found I had an excess of resin and mold space and quickly looked through my materials to find something else to try. I grabbed my containers of gemstone chip beads and immediately loved the results. I found that even once the resin cured, the gems inside maintained that luminous “wet” look.
As I continued to explore the energetic vibrations of gemstones, I began developing blends of stones that complimented each other aesthetically and also served a deeper purpose. With each piece, I create energetic signatures in the stones I choose that reinforce desirable attributes and help to heal those from which we might like to untie ourselves.
Each one is like a wearable gemstone grid.
I have experimented with the mountings on these pieces over the years. I tried cast closed back bezels, but I was unhappy with how little light came through and how lost the stones would get. I tried hand making them in fine silver, but the time and cost associated pushed them beyond their accessible price point. Finally, I settled on cast open bezels in silver plated and antiqued copper. I hang each one on a matching eighteen-inch chain.
