How to Make Pressed Flower Jewelry - two awesome ideas!
Idea Number One:
If your craft is pressing flowers and leaves and then creating artwork from them such as cards and shadow boxes, then this might be something to consider adding to your lineup this year.
Almost every craft or hobby can be turned into something that others would love and buy. You just have to think outside the box, and do some research. There are so many great supplies on the market now that can help you such as the silver backings for pendants and the epoxy fronts to make them look like layers of epoxy. There are many ways to display your delicate pressed flowers.
These make great gifts especially at Christmas as a beautiful reminder of Mother Nature at her best during the warmer months. What a great way to preserve the beauty of nature and also be worn as a creative art piece.
Check out this video on just how easy it is to showcase your delicate petals into pressed flower jewelry. From past experience I have found that more and more customers are wanting to have wearable art, rather than pieces that simply sit on the shelf. They want to wear it and show it off. This way it counts as jewelry and art and they are more likely to open their wallet.
You can get many of the supplies online such as at Amazon. Here are some examples: You can get the silver backings in various sizes and then the epoxy squares to fit on top that looks beautiful and will really showcase the pressed flower.
If you want something a bit more intricate with more steps using actual resin, check out the video below. You can make some really cool resin pressed flower jewelry that will encase your piece of nature in resin. Video below:
Idea Number Two:

There is a bit more involved in this craft, but they do turn out beautiful. You can get the molds online and the epoxy resin below:
These look beautiful when done. The best advice I can give for a craft idea like this, is to go for quality supplies. You have these beautiful pressed flowers, so you are going to want to showcase them in the best possible way.
Get silver backings or "Pendant trays" as they call them and do a good job. Use nice backing paper. In the video I didn't think the backing paper was that good a quality, so play with the best background for your flowers.
If you decide to go the "resin" route, make sure you are in a well ventilated area, but these molds really make it easier to get creative with pressed flowers. The resin creates a glass like look so that the flower stands alone. Either way are beautiful and are some great ideas for crafts you can make and sell. These are small enough to sell online and post too.
