There are plenty of people who embed organic material into resin.  One artisan who stands out is Croatian based Zeljka who calls her shop, IsThisHandmade? Not only does she include unusual organic material in her work, she also makes distinctive frames for her designs using a soldering iron. Her collection shows off her design aesthetics and eye for natural beauty.

She uses many types of organic material - fungi, flowers, leaves, spices dead insects, vegetables and even Croatian salami!  She sources her materials from a number of places - her garden, in her suburb and even the local supermarket!  An avid collector indeed!
