And here I go with resin jewelry, again. I kind of love it. It’s sneaky, I think. Here you are, admiring a gorgeous gemstone, complete with sparkles, and all the colors you can think of, and nope. It’s not amethyst, or garnetm or onyx. It’s resin. I love that. What I especially love about Cameoko’s pieces are the bohemian vibe about them. When I scrolled her feed, every piece was more beautiful than the last.
Let’s meet her, shall we?
How would you describe your resin jewelry?
I create a line of resin jewelry that is constantly evolving and changing. Resin is a very experimental medium and that helps when you have a creative desire to push yourself to make new and pretty wearable art pieces.
How did you get started with making resin jewelry?
How would you describe your style?
I would say my style is fun and unique. Once a customer described my jewelry as being very happy and that was a great compliment. I enjoy wearing simple pieces with a twist and I also enjoy creating pieces that are reminiscent of early 1950’s and 60s lucite and resin jewelry.
What do you love about making resin jewelry?
I love how resin allows me to be very creative and experimental.
What drives you crazy about creating resin jewelry?
It’s tricky to work with. Even after 8+ years of working with it, it can surprise me.
What craft would you like to try other than creating resin jewelry?
Currently I’m taking classes with soldering in hopes of expanding my line. I also have a creative family and we are all interested in soap making at the moment!
What’s one piece of advice you’d give to someone who wanted to open an online handmade shop?
The best piece of advice that was given to me when I was first starting out was to be true to yourself. If you truly are making art that inspires you and speaks to you, then share it with the world and hope for the best!Be true to yourself.Click To Tweet
What inspires you, or how do you keep your creative mojo going?
My family is what keeps me going. I have two young girls and a hardworking husband who both motivate and inspire me.
What’s one book/resource you would recommend for someone wanting to try their hand at making resin jewelry?
Etsy has been a very wonderful resource for my business. There are Etsy teams dedicated to every medium and I’ve bounced ideas and questions off of people all over the world on Etsy forums. I find these teams consist of folks who are more than willing to help.
Where can we find you?
Small boutiques nationwide, as listed on my website, scoutmob online and craft shows throughout the Southeast. Oh and Etsy 🙂
