Nature's HandyWork

Tori Eisenberg, Artist/Owner

Tori Eisenberg is the owner of her flagship product, Nature’s HandyWork. She gets much of her inspiration from Mother Nature. Tori loves to create beautiful pieces of resin jewelry that can be worn and enjoyed day after day, year after year. Her products are handmade in her home studio on the Fox River near Sheridan, Illinois. Using nature’s gifts and preserving them in clear resin, she custom makes one-of-a-kind jewelry from plants native to the Fox and Illinois River Valley’s of Northern Illinois. She makes a wide variety of items, and her simple, minimalist designs are loved by so many. 

While exploring the website you will find a shop featuring our “Build Your Own” lines featuring our most popular plants and styles, upcoming live events (where Tori features her newest pieces!), care instructions, custom order request forms, featured retail locations, and more!

Care Instructions

To Stand The Test of Time

Please do not wear your jewelry/accessory while showering, swimming or exercising.

Please wipe down your jewelry/accessory with warm water and a gentle soap or toothpaste to help preserve its life and remove tarnish from metal.

Do not store your jewelry/accessory in direct sunlight. Doing so will cause discoloration of the resin, bleach the plant inside and discolor the metal.

Do not cut food on resin products, such as our trays and coasters. The surface is not made for cutting. Resin debris, if consumed, is toxic to our bodies.

Special wood care instructions:
Caring for your wooden piece is easy! If it is looking a little worn, just refresh it with a little cutting board oil or butcher block oil. Rub a generous amount on and then wipe off with a paper towel or clean cloth. Repeat as needed to keep your pieces full of life! To clean, just wash with some mild soap and warm water. Dry right away and wipe with oil if needed. Avoid soaking in water. 

Custom Orders

Preserve Memories

Preserve memories to stand the test of time!

Due to overwhelming requests, I now take custom orders!

Many people have called upon me to encapsulate life’s important events in resin, including flowers from weddings and funerals to something so precious as incorporating a loved one’s remains into a piece of jewelry. Maybe you just love a certain flower in your yard and want to preserve it! Only you can limit your imagination! 

We have also expanded to create custom products for wholesale clients to promote their brand. One such client is Camp Aramoni, a luxury campground, for which we produce custom jewelry using native plants from their property to be sold in their camp store, Gertie’s.
