About this project

What our book is about:

This book is a how-to craft book that is hip and edgy.   Through years of trial and error, we have perfected the art of making fun resin jewelry and we want to share it with the world!  

One of our favorite jewelry models Jesse Pagz wearing one of the necklaces that will be featured as one of the tutorials in our book.

Why this book is a MUST:

As young crafters ourselves, we have found that the craft book market is severely lacking in new, fresh, hip ideas for the younger generation.  Each week we both get several messages from other crafters wanting to know how they can make their own cool resin jewelry.  This book will be the first of its kind, is truly unique, and already has a market desperate for the know how.

Why we need $1300:

Mostly, self publishing costs, which are $900.  Secondly, paying for professional photography, being that this is going to be a very picture heavy, coffee table style book.  Lastly, arts and craft supplies for the tutorials.  I think our local craft store employees know us by name by now!

Who is our publisher?

We will be publishing the book through AuthorHouse.  Once it's finished and publishing is complete it will be available for purchase via Barnes and Noble and Amazon.com.  We will also strive to find other venues and will also sell copies in our own shops and social media sites.

Our readers will learn how to make beautiful, 3-dimensional pieces such as this.

We will show our readers how to embed many different items in resin to show how versatile and fun this medium can be.  The sky is the limit!

Special Thanks to:

Rod at Carrillo Music for donating his time to make our video.  Also thank you to Jesse Pagz and Kandy K for donating their modeling talents to us as well.  We couldn't have done it without you.  A special thanks goes out to our four children for the background sound effects in our video. ;)
