Cornflower Necklace

PROJECT N8080
Designer: Alexandra Smith
Skill Level: Intermediate
This rustic, minimalist necklace features a pressed flower suspended in clear cast resin within a Nunn Design open frame pendant.
Instructions
This necklace measures 18 inches long. For a longer or shorter necklace, choose your desired length of finished chain. 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. We recommend watching all videos before beginning this project.
  1. If you are new to 2-part epoxy resin, you can watch the video: How to Use Nunn Design Resin.
  2. Please watch the video: How to Incorporate Organic Matter into 2-Part Resin by Becky Nunn. Set up your bezel on thick tape as shown in the video.
  3. Put on your face mask and disposable gloves. Based on the technique shown in the video in step 1, mix the resin in a mixing cup and stir gently with a craft stick until all striations are gone.
  4. Based on the technique shown in the video in step 2, prepare your organics and position them in your bezel. Then carefully fill the bezel with the desired amount of resin. Remove any air bubbles with a heat source such a small torch. Let the resin harden and cure for three days in a dust-free and well-ventilated area before proceeding.
  5. To hang your pendant: Use pliers to open a 4mm jump ring, and attach the loop of your pendant onto your finished chain. Close the jump ring.
  6. Enjoy your necklace!
