Sterling silver is designed to make a functional and decorative receptacle for resin inlay which completes the piece. Once the metal piece is made, dry pigment such as
enamel powder, eye shadow, paint, spice, you name it, is thoroughly mixed into a resin
compound. This colored resin is then carefully placed into the metal “mold” in which it dries and hardens. The face of the piece is then sanded down to make a flush finish or is
left in its shiny and perhaps domed state. Some pieces contain elements that are encased in clear resin. The possibilities of design and color are endless.
