REAL FLOWER JEWELLERY
I use real flowers to make jewellery.. The drying process takes 8 to 21 days, before the flower is ready for setting.
I use resin to set the flowers. Each layer of the pendant is done separately and takes 73 hours to cure. There are a minimum of 2 layers in each pendant, and up to 7 layers. So many of the pendants take weeks to make.
I work with many different flowers, but most commonly I use Skeleton Leaf, Queen Anne’s Lace, Lichen, Moss, Pansy, Orchid, Lilly, Rose, Forget Me Not, Cornflower and Baby’s Breath. I also like to include 24k gold flakes, rose gold or silver flakes to compliment the flowers.
