Help your soap to last longer by using one of these unique 3"x5" handcrafted stone and resin soap dishes. Rubber bumpers on the bottom protect countertops and keep the dish from sliding across wet surfaces. There are several varieties available and all are gorgeous!
Polished River Stone-Inspired by my honeymoon trip to Belize. While out hiking, we crossed a small creek with crystal clear water and beautiful little pebbles. The particular geology of Belize is almost entirely made up of limestone which contributes to the incredible clarity of the water. I replicated these in a soap dish using pebbles I tumble for four weeks and set in a clear epoxy resin. Stones are approximately 1/2 inch each and are in shades of brown, tan, black, and cream.
White Marble-These smooth polished stones have a wonderful soft feel and look great in a modern, minimalist bath. I tumble the stones for around four weeks then set them in a resin soap mold. You may see very small discolorations on a few stones but the overall effect is a lovely monochrome white.
Quartz (Rose, White, Clear)-. One of my favorite pastimes is to spend the day collecting quartz at a small family-run mine in western Georgia. This is not one of your "run of the mill" gem-mining places with salted buckets of dirt; everything here must be dug out of the ground by hand. The rose quartz from here is a very light pink; lighter than what you might get from a mine in Brazil or Madagascar. However, it's worth it because in many countries mineral mining is destructive to the environment and workers are not compensated fairly. I love knowing that I am the very first person to see and hold these rocks. I also like knowing these were collected ethically (by me!) and with care and respect.
Important note about quartz dishes: each quartz dish is available with polished or rough stones. The polished stones have been tumbled for 4 weeks. The rough stones are only tumbled for around 24 hours--just long enough to buff off the extremely sharp edges.
"Bowerbird" Dishes-Are you familiar with the bowerbird? Native to Australia and Papua New Guinea, the male builds these elaborate and colorful structures to court a mate. Each structure contains twigs and bits of collected items (shells, stones, glass, plastic etc). They're beautiful.
If I were to have a spirit animal, it would be the bowerbird. Ever since I was a child, I have loved to collect things I find when I am out and about. Usually it's rocks but if I am at the beach it could be shells, sea glass or any other trinket. It's gotten to the point that our family accounts for this activity whenever we make travel plans (as in, "make sure there's time for Peggy to pick up her rocks"). I wanted to find a use for all these found objects so I have transformed them into beautiful and functional resin soap dishes. Each is completely unique.

Soap residue can build up on your dish over time. To clean, simply rub with a kitchen sponge and warm water. Soap dishes are not dishwasher safe!
