  • I was abroad on a holiday this past May and saw there were abundant and tiny wildflowers all over the place. I’ve been wanting to have an ICE Resin pendant with flowers for quite some time and thought this was the perfect chance. The only thing available to me at the moment was my passport, so I pressed it in between two pages and hoped for the best.

    Step 1: A couple of days later it looked like I had done the right thing, so I pressed other flowers, this time I had my travel journal with me so I pressed them in my journal.

    Step 2: This is pretty much how they looked on my journal 2 months later. Really happy they had retained their colors!

    Step 3: Arrange the pressed flowers inside the ICE Resin Mold.

    Step 4: Mix ICE Resin® according to instructions, allow the indicated wait time. Pour resin into the mold. Let it dry overnight.

    Step 5: The next day I popped them from the molds and since I wanted an open, airy pendant to enjoy my colorful flowers I decided to wrap Jewelry Wire around them. Use two medium wires on the bigger circle and one on the smaller one.

    Mix another small batch of Resin and let it sit for about an hour and apply the Resin to the top to make it clear again and to help secure the wires around the pendant. Let this cure one more day.
