About PiHole

Sales 55
On Etsy since 2007

I came. I cried. I created.

I've been dabbling in making jewelry since I was a teenager, but I didn't start working with epoxy resin until 2007. In the spring of that year, I had a miscarriage of a baby I desperately wanted. I was looking for a way to cope with the grief in a non-self-destructive way, and I thought if my hands were busy making something, they would be too busy to pick up a drink. I found a book on epoxy resin jewelry by Sherri Haab and taught myself how to create resin jewelry. My first attempts were crude, but I enjoyed the process of trial and error and learning how to work with the medium. Over time, I have improved my technique. My favorite projects are commissioned pieces where I get to collaborate with someone. And I am always looking for new things to embed in resin. I never thought of myself as an artist growing up because I can't draw or paint. But I have come to realize that I am an artist, despite my shortcomings, because it's when I am creating that my soul sings.

Welcome to piHole Designs!

My name is Sarah Norris, and I am the sole proprietor of piHole Designs. I live in Frederick, Maryland, with my husband, my son, a beagle/basset mix, and a very sweet grey cat. By day, I solve the riddles of infectious diseases as a biostatistician. By night, weekend, and the occasional day off, I make fun, funky jewelry out of epoxy resin, clay, beads, wire, and odd things I find. I find inspiration for my jewelry in nature, math & science, literature, and the art and design of the 1950’s and 1960’s. I’ve made jewelry off and on my whole life, but I started pouring epoxy resin in 2007 and have been hooked ever since. Please convo me about custom pieces. I hope you enjoy my jewelry. Thanks for stopping by.

GIVING BACK:
A portion of all sales will be donated to Heartly House (http://www.heartlyhouse.org) which provides comprehensive services for victims and survivors of domestic violence, rape/sexual assault and child abuse.
