Cat Fur Keepsake Jewellery

It has been over 14 years since I made my very first resin keepsake pendant containing pet fur. These are the first keepsake pendants that I made back in February 2010 containing the fur from a much-loved dog.

Seaside paperweights containing shells

This warmer Spring weather we are experiencing has encouraged me to think about summer holidays, dipping toes into the sea, making sand sculptures and foraging the beach for seashells and pretty stones.

Lock of Baby Hair Preserved as a Keepsake

Do you remember the first hair cut your child had as a baby or toddler? The excitement but also the sadness of cutting off those first precious locks of hair. Most of us who have children will remember that time and no doubt a lot of us kept a lock of that first precious hair too.

This is the first baby hair keepsake that I made, containing a lock of hair from my child’s first haircut and it is kept within his baby box.

Preserving Formula 1 Tyre Rubber Debris

I was recently sent some pieces of Formula 1 tyre rubber debris that someone managed to collect from their visit to the British Grand Prix at the Silverstone motor racing circuit in 2023. The lady wanted me to preserve the tyre rubber within a resin paperweight, and this is what I made for her:
