PROJECT N8077
Designer: Alexandra Smith
Skill Level: Intermediate
A subtle golden glow radiates from this eclipse flat tag pendant, overlaid with pressed organics sealed in resin.
Instructions
In addition to the materials listed, you will also need: pressed organics, gloves, a face mask, toothpicks, and a heat source such as a lighter or small torch. Be sure to cover your work surface when using resin. These instructions will make a 17 inch necklace. To modify the size, adjust the lengths of rolo chain on either side accordingly.
  1. Please watch the video: How to Use Nunn Design Resin to Seal Pressed Organics onto Flat Tags for Jewelry.
  2. Set up your flat tag in a well-ventilated and dust-free area.
  3. Put on your face mask and disposable gloves. Based on the technique shown in the video, mix the resin in a mixing cup and stir with a craft stick gently until all striations are gone.
  4. Following the technique shown in the video, prepare your organics and position them onto the flat tag. Then use a toothpick to apply the desired amount of resin to the entire surface of the flat tag. Remove any air bubbles with a heat source such a small torch. Let the resin harden and cure for three days before proceeding.
  5. To hang your pendant: Use flush cutters to cut a 7.75 inch length of rolo chain. Open a 6.5mm jump ring and attach the hole on one side of your flat tag to one end of your chain. Close the jump ring. Repeat this step to attach chain to the opposite side of your necklace.
  6. Open another jump ring, and attach your lobster clasp to one side of your necklace. Close the jump ring. Open one more jump ring and attach it to the other side of your necklace. Close the jump ring. All done!
