It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see. - Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862)

Hello and welcome - I'm Anke and I keep on trying to connect my artistic thoughts with wearable and everyday objects.
I always wanted to become a painter. To make my living I complete several internships and jobbed as a carpenter, metal worker, glazier and potter. I got fascinated by craftsmanship and technical capabilities, studied sculpture, traveled around the world and ended up as a property maker in Cape Town. There I found the love of my life - resin !!!
I try to make use of my manual skills to bring out the best of this wonderful material. The resin with its technical possibilities can influence the inlay, my Jelly babies for example who have not a drop of real jelly anymore, just their empty shell plays with optical illusion.
Otherwise the perception of even ordinary things can change if the object inside the resin define the shape - like my feather rings.
The beauty of some parrot feather which changes colors depending at the viewing angle and light source (interference caused by surface structure and light refraction) is just a lovely side effect.

So hopefully I can inspire you for a closer look and please you with my work.
You are always welcome to contact me.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

All of my pieces are one of the kind. Instead of using regular moulds I shape the pieces one by one to its unique shape. I won't offer the automaticly option for individualit 'cause I might disappoint customers. You are very welcome to asked maybe for the right size and color, so I'll give my best to create something very similar. But the past shows me, that I better refuse draping wild feathers with a strong quill to an flat, smashed looking little something, even it has the perfect color.

Sizing details

Because of the usual wider ring band of my feathers, you should select one size larger than your regular size to ensure a comfortable fit.

Care instructions

I don't use any extra topcoat or varnish on the surface. All my pieces are carefully polished to a brilliant high-gloss shine, so you can rub them anytime unconcernedly as hard as you can with an cotton ball or even your jeans (they love 100% cotton) without worries to destroy the shine or whatever.. You can even showering with them, make them steam in the sauna, but don't store them next to sharp metal utensils.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Ok, it's crazy, but till now I create for each single sale a one of a kind packaging. Can't help myself, but that's how it feels the best to send my babies on their journey.
Yes, quit lovely and ready to give it away.
But please let me know if you like to give it to someone else- I'll enclose a little extra gift card on which you can write something by yourself.
All will be send inside an bubble wrap envelope.

Wholesale availability

Sorry, I just have 2 hands.
