The wild geranium, above, is a current favorite of mine. I recently tried using them with my resin jewelry to great results. The color preserves well, and they dry very easily in silica gel.

great little thing for holding light items - a good mini dust cover. Seriously, that's the trickiest thing about resin, not letting dust fall in the piece while drying.

Hopefully will be having some new Etsy jewelry pieces soon, and then… my first stuffed animal!
