made from Recycled Surfboard Resin and Exotic Wood

Virginia Beach, Virginia

Announcement    Handcrafted jewelry and artwork made from recycled surfboard resin and exotic types of wood found worldwide.

I've enjoyed working with my hands as long as I remember usually working with wood or metal, but then in 2006 I went to work at my nephew’s surfboard factory and this opened up a whole new medium to work with.
We noticed that during the glassing of the surfboards that the different colored resins dripping off the surfboards into a catch basin would mix together producing some very colorful patterns. After a while the resin in the catch basin would get very thick and would have to be broken up. Instead of discarding this old hardened resin, I started to collect this and any surplus resin to recycle into beautiful and unique pieces of jewelry. I started out doing simple surfboard resin keychains and small necklaces. Then after experimenting a little with the pieces I was able to start making rings which was very popular item at my nephew’s surf shop. A few years later after investing in a lathe I was able to start making bangles and pens out of the surfboard resin to add to my inventory.
The last few years I have also been selling my work in the gift shop at The Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art. So if you ever are in Virginia Beach be sure to stop in.

Additional policies and FAQs
Property of resin: Resin is a very hard material but could chip or crack if dropped on a hard surface such as concrete or tile floor.

Resin and Wood Rings: Because of the small shank (band) and softer material of some of the wood and resin rings care should be taken, though fairly durable they can't take the same abuse as a metal ring.
