My Squishy Monkey

Andi is the owner of My Squishy Monkey and was inspired to create resin jewellery from nature when her eldest daughter (at the time 3) bought me some flowers for Mothers Day and was sad when the flowers died.  She asked if they could make something from the paper flowers that were in the bouquet, and wanted to put in a bracelet to wear forever.  Having used resin before to cover clay jewellery Andi thought it might work and started experimenting just for fun.  After a fair few disasters it then led to a bit of an obsession, and also allowed Andi to combine her love of baby wearing her two girls to preserve “wrap scrap” memories in jewellery. Now the kids love to get involved and will come home from their walks with handfuls of flowers and leaves for her-they get to use all the “failed” pieces in their crafts!

More recently I have been creating memory keepsake jewellery for families who have lost a loved one, or to celebrate an occasion. These can be crafted from flowers, cremation ashes, items of clothing and also hair. I look forward to sharing some of my pieces with you as it given me such a great sense of happiness to be able to create something that is so meaningful.
