A lot of my work is sanded and buffed to create a beautiful matt finish and texture. These pieces are untouched which makes for a very beautiful and glossy look. These earrings also reflect the light and create an illusion of sparkle without the glitter. Resin is a living beast for at least 6 - 8 hours until it starts to cure. Because these pieces are not sanded or buffed, they are raw and as such, you can tell they are a hand made product, unlike plastics or acrylics.
