Resin Pieces by Kurisu – Xmas Edition

Hello dear readers,
Wishing you all a happy week, today I wanted to post my latest creations in collaboration with @ariels_garden who is a passionate gardener and also does very nice knitting work with the macrame technique. You already know I design crafts with resin and decided to combine my skills with those of this friend of mine.

The result is this design of a Christmas themed mini macrame plant hanger all handmade by both of us. If you like them and are interested to buy one, you can write to us and we will work on it for each one of you. ♥️🎁

In the meantime I have gathered some information about the techniques used in this creation: 1. “Macramé” is a form of textile produced using knotting techniques. One of the earliest recorded uses of macramé-style knots as decoration appeared in the carvings of the Babylonians and Assyrians. The word macramé is derived from the Arabic miqramah, believed to mean “striped towel”, or “embroidered veil”. It is said that it also comes from Turkish makrama, meaning “napkin” or “towel”. Macramé was most popular in the Victorian era. It adorned most homes in items such as bedspreads and curtains. Sailors made macramé objects while not busy at sea, and sold them when they landed, spreading the art world wide. Macramé’s popularity faded, but resurged in the 1970s for making wall hangings, clothing accessories, small jean shorts, plant hangers etc. By the early 80s, macramé again began to fall out of fashion, only to be revived by millennials.

In polymer chemistry and materials science, “Resin” is a solid or highly viscous substance of plant that is typically convertible into polymers. Resins are usually mixtures of organic compounds. Plants secrete resins for their protective benefits in response to injury. Resin casting is a manufacturing process in which a liquid material is usually poured into a mold, which contains a hollow cavity of the desired shape, and then allowed to solidify. The solidified part is also known as a casting, which is ejected or broken out of the mold to complete the process.

Here’s another necklace I designed with fir branches. Since Christmas is the season to have your heart open or as being said the season of “Love”, I thought to add to it’s design this little Rose Quartz. This is a stone which stands for Unconditional Love, soft feminine energy of compassion and peace, tenderness, healing, nourishment and comfort. Hope you like it!

So these were some of my Xmas resin pieces. Send me a message to order!

Love,
Kurisu
