Real Flower Miniature Garden Resin Pendant
You know how sometimes (but rarely) you imagine a piece and then it turns out exactly as you imagined or sometimes even better. Finishing this resin project was one of the those rare moments when all the stars lined up and I achieved what I wanted. I am so proud to show you my UV resin pendant made with real pressed flowers set in a teardrop metal pendant frame. The pendant frame, UV light and resin are available from Ben Franklin Crafts so you can design your very own original jewelry like this. To make tiny pressed flowers and leaves I suggest you dry flowering herb plants between white paper and leave them under heavy books for a few days.
This close-up shows the delicate and colorful the petals and how the flowers are set perfectly in the resin.
