Being one of many contemporary jewellery addicts out there, I never stop searching the internet for new pictures, ideas and inspiration from artists that use a variety of materials.

This time I came across the work of Coco Dunmire, yet another Alchimia alumna (they are everywhere I tell you!). Just by reading her CV, I cannot understand where exactly she was born but there is no place on earth this girl has not been to, from Poland to Kuwait, Italy, Germany and the USA (I’m suspecting she comes from the latter, please confirm if anyone knows for sure).

It’s not just the shape of her resin objects but also the colour palette (ah, the aquamarine…) as well that make me want to stare at these pictures for hours.

And since we’re on the topic of resin, have you ever used bio resin? Do you have any feedback, comments on this? It’s made out of “sunflower oil and other natural ingredients“. I suppose it would not only be safer for the environment but also for ourselves. Who likes enhaling all this toxic stuff anyway, right? Let me know if you have had experience with bio resin and whether you would prefer it to the “usual” stuff.

Thank you for reading this post.
