Sweet Peas creates custom resin knobs and pulls!
After the purchase of her house, Jessica Pea of Sweet Peas wanted to decorate her home in a unique way. After seeing the limited possibilities of hardware and "decorative" accents available, Jessica decided to design her own cabinet/furniture accessories, providing unique and custom accents.

***********************************
All our knobs are made with a non-toxic, ecofriendly epoxy resin (usually in three-five layers), which takes time (about 3 days between layers, and 1 week for final cure) to become hard and durable. Wooden bases are individually threaded, hand-painted, and embedded in the final layer for durability. We kept in mind that you will be using your knobs to pull open drawers and cabinets over and over, so by embedding the base, optimum strength is achieved. After the resin has cured, the back of the knobs are hand-trimmed and/or sanded to create a smooth surface that is comfortable for even the tiniest of fingers!
Be wary of resin knobs that merely have a metal base glued to it! Would you trust opening and closing a drawer multiple times a day with a knob that could snap off its base?
We use our own knobs in our own homes, and can vouch for their resilience with daily use!
