‘Resin’-ating Love

12 Sep

Being a lover of original design and use of materials, I have become quite the Etsy.com addict! I trawl the pages for hours taking in all the quirky ideas, one-off designs and up-cycling of once useless bric-a-brac. This time I was instantly drawn to the work of Par Amour, a colab of tattooist/illustrator Dustin Lucas and graphic designer Keri Newton based in Augusta, Georgia. Their Etsy store showcases their talents in various forms including art prints and hand made jewellery.

I browsed their store and found two resin bangles which I fell in love with instantly! One of birds in flight and the other of a winter scene, detailed right down to the deer tracks in the snow. They were sent to me in the cutest packaging i’ve witnessed in a long time; black tissue paper, business card and sticker all wrapped up in a gold bow. Opening my purchase was an experience all in itself! I am a big fan of attention to detail and these guys don’t falter here that’s for sure!

As for the design and make-up of the bangles, the body of the bracelet is clear resin with a printed ‘scene’ on acetate dropped into the resin during the setting process. The overall effect is bespoke, modern yet minimal with the power to provoke compliments upon wearing them out and about!

I urge you to check them out, their store loot is constantly changing….i’d know, i’m always looking!
