Saskia was first introduced to resin at Art School in 2005. In 2010 she decided to make a few resin pieces to go with an exhibition and things grew from there.
Her first works were simple solid resin pieces featuring images from her own work and later expanded into stamps and coins. The more she made, the more she explored new ideas.
She further expanded her range of stamps, imagery and materials by introducing bezel settings and other exciting findings.
She started to refine the work she was making and decided to “Brand” it. She went with a simple name saskia.n Designs, which is solely dedicated to my Resin Jewellery.
Saskia now makes a wide variety of jewellery items using just about anything she can stick in resin. The range has expanded from what were originally pendants and brooches to rings, earrings and even the occasional set of cufflinks.
Saskia moved back to Auckland in January and has started going to markets over the last few months. " It is a new and exciting venture, and a great way to meet new people. It is really interesting to hear what people like, or want, and take on new suggestions and ideas."
Her work is inspired by nostalgia and a love of paper. She loves bringing life to old stamps and coins by immortalising them in resin
Saskia thank you so much for the chat. And we look forward to seeing you on the 18th of June.
