Step 1 : Choose the flowers to use
First, you need to start by choosing the flowers to be incorporated into your jewelry. Do not forget that Each flower has its own meaning. So try to make the selection according to your character, your feelings or the values that reflect your personality.
Helichrysum, for example, is the emblem of eternal love. And the Delphinium symbolizes sincerity and protection. The gypsophile can also interest you, because it is a lucky charm. And finally, the prunus spinosa is the emblem of renewal.
In addition to their symbolism, flowers are also to be chosen according to their color and their shape. The design of your jewelry may mainly depend on these criteria.

Step3: Insert dried flowers into tubes, pearls or spheres
The next step is to insert dried flowers into tubes, pearls or spheres. Here, two options are available to you: either you use UV and UV LED resin; Either you use bi-component epoxy resin.
Use UV and UV LED resin
To insert dried flowers into UV resin, you have to take a special jewelry and you must add a few drops of translucent resin to the bottom of the latter. It is then necessary to insert the dried flower so that a part remains in contact with the resin.
Afterwards, you have to make a subampery or the sun catalyze to immobilize the plant. Once the dried flower is put in place, all you have to do is fill the mold to the top.
Use Bi-component epoxy resin
It is also possible to create a flowery jewelry with bi-component epoxy resin. Here, the principle is the same, that is to say that we must add a few drops of resin to the bottom of a mold, insert the dried flower and fill the mold to the top. But you must then be patient, because the epoxy resin takes about a day to catalyze the whole.
To maintain the rod or the dried flower in the resin, you can place a wooden stick on the surface of the mold. And do not hesitate to fix it well to prevent the plant from going up.
Resin flowers moldy
It is also quite possible to resign dried flowers without mold. Use sets and a silicone modeling carpet to insert dried flowers into the resin.
To do this, you only have to place your set on the carpet making sure that it is not curved. Then you have to pour a little resin and you have to place your flower, then cover with resin again. You have to wait until everything is catalyzed. Afterwards, you have to return your creation and you have to repeat a flow on the other side.
Resin Only flowers
It is finally possible to create a flowery jewel by resounding only dried flowers. Here, there is no question of making an inclusion. You should rather bet on a topping or a varnish.
In addition, you can also choose between UV resin and epoxy resin. However, we advise you to opt for UV resin if you cannot wait 2 hours to dry the creation.
