resin jewelry: natural set
March 18, 2010

I have done many an experiment with resin, seeing just what I can get away with embedding. This is one set I am particularly fond of – most of the pieces have been sold off so I only have the photos left.

Interestingly, a lot of the colors changed once the flowers hit the resin and even after it hardened.  The first and third pieces on the bottom row here were originally light pink and purple when picked. It was really interesting to see how each color reacted to the chemicals in the resin, a lot of the pieces turned dark and looked slightly wilted which created a whole different look than what I had intended.

this last one I had to keep for myself, it charmed me too much.

I’ve been meaning to try this again sometime, and possibly attempt to seal the flowers with pva or mod podge before hitting the resin to maybe keep the colors a bit more natural.
