Saw that quote on a note pad in my friend's tote bag. I absolutely LOVE this statement and can relate because I firmly believe women of a certain age don't get caught up with the drama our younger sisters often times immerse themselves into. We also stopped people-pleasing because, well, we simply love ourselves more.
Enter ENVYOLOGY. My label means healthy envy is not a bad thing. Especially if it is used as a positive motivator. The 'logy' means the 'study of.' Yes, I am a self-proclaimed Resin-ista. I have more fun experimenting with resin. I bought different molds: ring, bracelet, bangle. Then color and tools. And I don’t want to focus on huge inventory. I prefer small, one-of-kind pieces. When I create a piece, it’s a one-and-done. I only create one of a kind. The color may make the difference, or a slight change in the end product.
My first piece was a statement bracelet mixed with yellow and brown. The colors reminded me of mustard and soil. What a crazy combination! But guess what - that was my first sale! I thought it was hideous, but someone else though otherwise. Lesson learned - wear something you don't like - and I bet people will rave about it on you. An almost missed opportunity for you to share your style with someone else.
I recently branched out and started adding different findings in the resin. What I discovered is the importance of curing certain types of resin. Since I use the resin that I can add stones and drill holes in, I had to do research to understand how not to get dreaded bubbles in the curing process.
Like Envyology’s tagline: Your permission to adore. Always wearable art.
I’m always interested in what you think of my pieces, and consider it an honor if you have any feedback for me: firstname.lastname@example.org.
