Resin Botanical Pendants


 I've finally gotten a nice selection of resin botanical pendants up in the shop.




These are my absolute favorite designs to make.  I love the whole process; making the little blossoms, selecting the branches, arranging everything just so...a perfect balance of symmetry and natural whimsy.


One of my favorite aspects is that because the pendant is cast in entirely clear resin, the unique multi-dimensional properties of resin is so nicely highlighted. You can view the enclosed branch of blooms from all angles - even underneath and from the sides. Almost like a living bit of nature suspended in time...


Please stop by the shop to see the collection. And if you have a moment, let me know which is your favorite...

Wishing you a lovely week!

I love your work. They're so inspiring. I make jewelry myself and have a shop. It doesn't have a big now but I plan on expanding it. I just ordered some resin to try out myself. Thank you for all the useful information you have on your blog.

love your blog! I'm very new to jewelry making and have more ideas than experience!! Any suggestions on good places to find pretty things (beyond paper images) to embed? I'm having trouble thinking of places to look aside from the scrapbooking/charm aisles at craft stores.

Em, I just try to keep my eyes (and mind) open. One idea is to check out antique shops, maybe not the fancy ones but the real cluttery dusty ones - I've found some unique things, including old jewelry that you can take apart. The hardest part for me is finding objects that are small enough. I like to use lots of botanicals and always am on the lookout during walks for a sweet little bit of foliage. You could also consider the peices created for dioramas and model railroads - they are called n-scale and are quite tiny!
