Over the past several months, we’ve been enamored with jewelry that encapsulates nature inside of crystal-clear resin. These pieces often showcase small blooms with their colorful petals preserved in exquisite vintage-style pendants. Online shop Is This Handmade? follows this same idea but puts a unique spin on the trend: they use natural-yet-unconventional materials as the centerpiece of their necklaces. Parts of fruits, herbs, bugs, and beans are displayed inside of rustic tin shapes to showcase another side of Earth’s beauty.
A slice of strawberry might seem like a strange choice for jewelry, but its cross-sectioned portrait is a gorgeous display of its vibrant color and intricate structure. Likewise, the wings of a moth and shell of a snail are seen in a whole new light when encased in resin—we can now admire their fine details that usually elude us when they're outdoors.
These pieces are meant as statement jewelry and add a special flair to your everyday attire. Is This Handmade? sells their work—along with conventional bloom designs—through Etsy.
