I just cranked out this ad for DEEP Magazine, featuring Sierra and Hailey Partridge of Team Betty and debuting my Surfboard Resin jewelry collection.
The surfboard resin jewelry is a fantastic achievement. We finally found a beautiful solution for the waste byproduct resin created by surfboard building. It took a year of R&D, but the results were well worth the wait and I have to say, everyone who comes into the shop and sees these pendants and earrings is completely enchanted by them and even more so when they find out the story behind them; Each stripe in the jewelry is excess resin from a locally made surfboard, connected to a surfer riding that board, connecting to the ocean.
I debuted the collection at the Sacred Craft in Santa Cruz. Check out our little cameo in this video about this important surfboard culture event, which Betty Belts has been a part of for the past four years.
The jewelry is not yet available on our website, but can be ordered through the Betty B. retail store in Ventura at 805.648.6997
