June's Kit - Pressed flower and resin Jewellery

July 30, 2019

 

 

Ahhh summer. We love you, but you are perhaps not the craftiest of seasons!? This month, we decided to come up with a kit that involved a little bit of getting outside in the sunshine!

 

This box included everything you need to make these beautiful pressed flower botanical pendants.

 

Inside the box;

 

Resin

Hardener

Pendant and earring frames

Pressing paper

tweezers

mixing dish

mixing stick

Pipette

Masking tape

Jewellery findings

 

 

 

So this wasn't the most straight forward of kits, with several steps that required a lot of precision and waiting...

 

The first step was to head to the nearest green spot and find some tiny colourful flowers to press! This could take weeks or minutes depending on wether you chose to press using a book or an iron. 

 

Then came the science. Anyone that has ever worked with resin will know that you have to work slowly and carefully, but can expect amazing results if you get it right!

 

 Just how gorgeous are the finished pieces? 

 

This was a really popular kit, with our spare kits selling out almost immediately. We are so glad that people loved it!

 

If you had a bash at making these pieces, why not share to our instagram page@makerlycrafts ?
