Little Windows makes it fun & easy to turn your favorite photos into wearable art, with a complete program that has everything you need in one place!
Our proprietary epoxy resin formula is the best ever! Developed for use with photos and other delicate items. I wanted something you could safely use at your kitchen table, so this is not a toxic product and doesn’t have the wicked smell you find with most resins. Beyond its great performance with casting, doming, layering, coating and filling bezels and other forms, the basic advantages are:
* easier to measure due to low viscosity
* blends easily, so you won’t get sticky spots
* smaller mix quantity required (1 tbsp per batch), so no waste
* not a toxic product
* no bad odor
* very low bubbling
* can put anything into it, even delicate items
* works well with other mediums and favorite supplies
* 30+ minute working time, 12 hour cure
* shelf life is 3x longer
* crystal clear and stays that way
* polished to a mirror finish, so whatever color and textures you put in will be
reflected up and around the sides
* gorgeous geometric shapes in 3 sizes
* great depth for variety in casting
* re-usable over and over
* easy release – no chemical mold release needed
brilliant accessories too!
I’m Fran, creator of Little Windows, and I love what I do. Here’s how this all came to be: If you’re anything like me, you’ve got tons of digital pix on your hard drive just looking for a way out. I loved the idea of photo jewelry, and tried to find something that really showcased my photos and fit my style, which is not vintage. I’ve been working with resins for years, and in 2006 started making photo pendants for myself.
You would not believe the response I got just wearing them out on the town. Not only moms, but trendy store clerks, cool dads, even the cute guys behind the counter at the Hollywood Arclight wanted to know where I got them. So I started crafting custom pieces and Little Windows was born.
After many months of research, and a ho-lotta experiments gone awry, I got to a point where it became easy because I had the right components, tools, and techniques. My friends and I were having so much fun making Little Windows, that creating a Kit (so you could too) seemed like an obvious next step.
With a helpful background in product development and graphic design, and the support of my creative family, I’ve been able to develop something wonderful and fulfilling that I hope you’ll love! The purpose of this blog is to bring you fun ideas, cool projects, extra information, to answer common (and not so common) questions, and give you a peek inside Little Windows.
one little monkey!
If you’re already making Little Windows, keep going! If you’ve ordered custom pieces, I hope you’re thrilled with them.
Thanks to all of you, and also to my professional photographer partners who make Little Windows even more beautiful!
Lots of fun to come!
