KOR is the resin jewellery brand of West Australian jeweller, Lisa Gardner. KOR is a way for Lisa to express and share her love for nature. She creates unique resin pieces inspired by the seasons and showcasing organic materials such as native grasses, foliage, flowers and shells which she seamlessly embeds into resin transforming them into something timeless and wearable.
Lisa studied Jewellery Design and Manufacture in Glasgow, Scotland in 2004 and has incorporated resin into her practice for the past 7 years. Starting with a concept or vision, she uses either clay or a casting wax to make a master pattern. Once she’s happy with the size and shape she uses a flexible silicon to make a mould which can be re-used multiple times to cast the resin in. Lisa’s pieces are hand poured as a labor of love and as a result each piece is unique.
