Xanthoria is a genus of lichenized fungi in the family Teloschistaceae. Common names include orange lichen, orange wall lichen, and sunburst lichen. They can be identified by their characteristic Squamulose morphology with distinctive "fairy cups".
I learn every time I make something with resin, how it will react with materials, how it may set. This time was no different with the orange from the lichen starting to leach out as the resin set. Almost like an amazing water colour picture.
Materials are hand picked, preserved and created into something natural and wearable.
This piece is 54mm x 23mm. It has been created using a bio resin finished with sterling silver fittings and hangs on an adjustable hand twinned brown cord.
As these pieces are created with protecting the environment in mind, Bottled Earth jewellery is made with an Epoxy Resin made with renewable biological resources. This bio epoxy is a revolution in bio resins. Made with renewable biological resources (organic vegetable waste) and an amazing 77% bio content, it is the best most environmentally friendly bio resin ever developed. The first bio resin that is BPA free!
Each necklace is created with real plants, I recommend that they not be left in direct sunlight or to be worn in the water including swimming or in the shower to insure the integrity of the piece.
