eco resin rings and bangles
The story: We are two sisters, 10 years apart, who love making wearable works of art. While living in Melbourne, Australia, Jessica took a mouldmaking and casting course and around the same time developed a serious feather-collecting habit. Upon returning to Canada, she taught Gwynne everything she knew. With Gwynne's superior eye for design Rosella Resin was born. The company is named after the beautiful Australian parrot.
The concept: Nature is the world's greatest designer. Rosella jewelry showcases the most beautiful designs found in nature, including feathers, shells, and plants.
Rosella Resin is proudly made using Entropy Resin's eco performance resin, certified by the USDA as a biobased product. Unlike most petroleum-based resins, this eco resin incorporates bio-derived materials such as pine oils derived from waste-streams of other manufacturing products.
The transparent resin transforms delicate and ephemeral natural artifacts into beautifully preserved, wearable, durable jewelry. Resin also has a magnifying property, highlighting every wispy strand of a feather, every grain of wheat or spiral in a shell.
We also love using metallic silver, gold and copper leaf flakes with a wide variety of colours. Within faceted shapes of the rings and bangles, the resin mimics earthen minerals and gemstones such as tiger eye, turquoise, lapis lazuli, graphite, marble.
Each piece is unique. When you wear our jewelry you can be assured you are wearing a one-of-a-kind item that no one else has.
The process: First we create every mould with high grade silicone rubber. Inside the moulds we place collected natural objects or metal flakes and colours. We then cast our jewelry using bio-derived eco resin. Eco resin has a longer cure time than traditional resins takes over one week to cure. After the jewelry has cured, we remove the pieces from the molds, and carefully sand and polish using over 15 grades of sandpaper and polishing tools.
The important part: We are nature lovers who are committed to environmental ethics. We use bio-derived eco resin to create our jewelry.
Parrot feathers are cruelty-free and naturally molted. We only use natural feathers, never dyed feathers. The vibrant colours are the bird's natural feathers.
Rosella jewelry is elegantly packaged and comes wrapped in a gift box so it’s ready to gift! We ship all our packages with Canada Post. If you would prefer a faster method of shipping, please contact us before purchasing to arrange.

Want to know how to find your ring size? Read our how-to (copy and paste this link into your browser): http://rosellaresin.ca/blog/2013/06/08/how-do-i-know-my-ring-size/
Unfortunately we cannot change the sizes of the listed rings or offer custom sizing.
We are always working on expanding the sizes we carry, so keep checking back frequently. :)
To avoid disappointment with the fit,:
Bangles: Make your hand into a small shape (as if you were going to put on a bangle.). Measure with a measuring tape around the widest part of your knuckles. Compare this with the inside circumference measurement on the listing to be sure the bangle will fit over your knuckles.
Rings: The most accurate way to know your ring size is to get it sized by a jeweller. For wide band rings (anything except the 'thin rings' in our shop) we recommend going a 1/2 size to a full size up for a more comfortable fit.
Care of Resin Jewellery
*Caring for Rosella eco resin jewellery*
* Resin is more fragile than metal rings - its consistency is similar to ceramic or shell. If enough direct force is applied, it could break. We recommend removing jewellery before manual labour (such as gardening).
* If the surface is scratched, it cannot be repolished to a shine. Remove before using abrasive scrubs. When not wearing, store in a soft bag or box.
* Keep away from chemicals and alcohol-based products including perfume and nail polish remover.
* The surface of resin may be slightly porous. For this reason, we recommend removing before working with mud, dirt or ceramics that could be absorbed.
* Exposure to extended amounts of strong sunlight isn’t recommended. When you’re not wearing your jewellery, it should be kept out of direct sunlight.
* We’ve found resin jewellery to be water resistant. While we haven’t done extensive testing, it holds up well to everyday handwashing or showering.
* To clean, use baby oil or mild soap with a soft cloth.
Sorry, but we are not able to accommodate custom requests.
The metallic flakes we use are imitation gold (85% copper 15% zinc), silver (100% aluminium), copper (100% copper) and a mix of copper and zinc (variegated.) Metal flakes are covered by resin making this jewellery a good choice for those with allergies to metal.
