What are your products made of?
- Epoxy resin - it's a special plant based, non-toxic epoxy resin.
- Gold, silver and copper metallic leaf - each product contains beautiful leaf which is a combination of base metal plus real gold, silver + copper.
- Beautiful dyes - each piece is a carefully considered colour.
- Sterling silver findings - all our earrings have sterling silver wires or posts. Your ears will thank you!
How are your pieces made?
- First we create our moulds - most pieces, including all our bangles, are based on vintage shapes, which we cast into silicone.
- We mix our resin with hardener, then add metallic leaf and dye, and pour into the moulds.
- Then we wait! Resin takes around 2 days to set in the mould, then a few more days of curing out of the mould.
- Sanding and polishing is the next important step - sanding down jagged edges, then shining back to perfection.
- Drilling and finishing the necklaces and earrings in our studio.
HOW LONG DO YOUR PIECES TAKE TO CREATE?
Each Sly Pony piece is made over around 10 days. If an item is listed as out of stock on our website (or you've seen something on our Instagram not listed here) we can still absolutely make one for you, just allow around 10 days!
IS SLY PONY HANDMADE?
Yes! All our pieces are made in our Melbourne studio.

WHICH BANGLE SIZE AM I?
The easiest thing to do is find a bangle that fits you perfectly, lay the inside edge against a ruler, and measure it across. Then, check our bangles from smallest to largest!

HOW DO I CARE FOR MY RESIN?
If your resin starts to dull, rub moisturiser in to shine it back up! Our earrings are made with sterling silver wires and posts, so use a silver polish to remove any tarnish.
Try not to drop your resin on the ground - it's pretty durable but occasionally bangles can crack. If this happens to you, please get in touch. firstname.lastname@example.org
