I’ve spent a good chunk of my life wandering around picking flowers, literally and metaphorically. A number of seemingly unrelated events ultimately culminated in Ephemera Botanicals including a gradually-acquired plant pressing hobby, an herbarium job during college, and discovering the delicate beauty of resin jewelry. After years of admiring, collecting, and coveting botanical resin pieces, I finally learned how to make them myself (right here at the Beehive!), and have been creating unique pieces ever since. My day job is as a professor and biomedical researcher, and I like to play with dogs and go antiquing with my husband in my (limited!) free time.
