Dawn's story

Crafting with epoxy resin began as just a hobby of mine. I like what I could create and what it added to my crafts. Coming from just paint and papercrafts, Resin seemed more challenging but when I mastered it I knew that this was something I truly enjoyed doing. I noticed that there weren’t any black-owned resin brands so I decided to venture into creating my own. COVID-19 hit and I was forced to put my venture and crafting on a brief hold. Encouraged by my husband and family, I decided to continue the venture, by doing research and testing out different samples from manufacturers. I launched Peace Be Resin Epoxy in July of 2020, even with the pandemic at its peak. I sold out of my very first batch of resin within hours. The biggest hurdle has been keeping up with the demand. I have very loyal customers that have stood by me and my business from the very beginning.
