The Friday Shiny – Green is her favourite colour
I have a lovely customer who has supported my resin work from the very beginning. She is a total stranger – other than the fact that she’s made many purchases from me over the years. When I decided to stop selling resin, I wanted to make something just for her, to show my appreciation for her support. Afterall, people like her inspired me to write my book.
I asked her what her favourite colour was, and she said ‘green’. This was a neat idea, because I usually work with leaves that have turned colour, and I haven’t done much in green at all! I found some leaves that were partly through turning yellow for the season, so the veining on them was clear and defined. I cropped the leaves to fit a 2″ silver plated bezel, and separated my pour into 5 layers so I could get the shadowbox effect and ‘frame’ a silver dragonfly charm. I hope she loves it!
