Resin and Dried Flowers jewelry

Dried flowers in resin focal with liquid silver necklace


Has it been over a year since I did a blog post?!  Yes it has.  I have been creating, but when I'm in that frame of mind that's what I'm doing:  designing and creating jewelry or working with fiber.  I thought I'd start posting again and weave my way through what I've been doing the last few years.

Awhile ago a long time friend asked me to create some earrings for a friend using dried flowers from her friend's daughter's wedding.  She sent quite a few dried flowers so she said go ahead and create whatever else hits me while I'm in the mood.  I've not worked a lot with resin, but that seemed to be the medium to work in so I started playing.  The one below I did purposefully as a blurry image.  I think I prefer it clear, but it does give it an aged look.

I made a couple pairs of earrings so she could choose which ones she would gift.  I used purchased frames that were in my stash from before my metalworking started.  I also had some dried flowers to pull from in my drawers of ephemera.
