Resin cremation jewellery
There is lots we can do with resin jewellery such as add birthstones and gemstones to pendants and charms etc and add any colour pigment which we can't do in glass... We can also produce it at a more reasonable cost. If looked after resin jewellery can remain as beautiful as when it was first made.
Resin is what many keepsake artists use including myself, it is an epoxy resin with hardener which is essentially a plastic substance. So it needs to have special care instructions such as removing while showering and bathing, keeping away from sunlight and heat etc... If not taken care of it can scratch, and though it is water resistant it is not waterproof and if worn time over whilst, cleaning bathing and swimming it will become soft or brittle. We also use a UV stabilised resin that has non yellowing properties.
Glass domes Cremation jewellery
We have now decided to add many more glass products fazing out some resin, we like the glass domes as they are made from tempered or toughened safety glass and provide a top to your jewellery that will not scratch or damage in the same way resin can if not cared for. (as we said re resin, this won't be a problem if looked after) but me personally I do forget to take it off from time to time.
The dome also acts like a magnifier so you can see every little detail of your loved ones ashes.
The glass also gives it a beautiful magnifying effect some domes are high some low they really are lovely, saying this you still must care for your glass domed style as again if immersed in water over and over etc cabochons are cemented in with epoxy and this will come loose over the years unless you are going for a filigree which has prongs that wrap around your dome for extra protection although like we said resin or glass please remove ALL.
So anyway my lovelies this is the difference between glass and resin. hopefully in our little treasure chest of keepsakes you will find something perfect for you be it beautiful resin or glass domed.
