About Jodie Dench
Resin-obsessed crazy button hoarder, Jodie Dench creates individual resin buttons and handmade resin jewellery under her label, ButtonUp Designs. Each and every piece is handcrafted and designed in her Sydney home studio, combining new, pre-loved, vintage and handmade resin buttons to create unique, eclectic wearable jewellery.
It was through a lack of owning original jewellery that Jodie started to create her own designs using buttons that were passed down through the generations. Jodie’s designs have developed into one of a kind pieces and with her love of combining chaotic colours, Jodie opened her Etsy store ButtonUp Designs in 2010. Since then, Jodie’s love for creating statement jewellery designs has led her to facilitating private and community-based resin jewellery workshops at Sydney-based community colleges and arts centres.
ButtonUp Designs includes a variety of statement pieces using handmade resin, vintage, pre-loved and new buttons that have been collected, made and sourced from a variety of places. Ranging from sweet, subtle small and quiet pieces to loud big bright handmade resin statement designs, ButtonUp Designs include wearable necklaces, earrings, brooches, bangles and rings. ButtonUp Designs also runs one-on-one and group resin jewellery workshops suitable for anyone wanting to create their own designs.
When Jodie is not working on new ideas, you will find her uncovering hidden treasures at markets and napping with Crumpet the kittah.
