Tools and materials:

  • Book (or heavy item)
  • Resin paint
  • Precision knife
  • Jewelry materials (chains, hooks, etc)
Picking clovers for jewelry

1. Gather your clovers

The process for this is entirely personal, so pick ones that are shaped how you like. The more vibrant the color, the better they’ll look. I picked a good bunch since I’m going to be making several pieces of jewelry.

Washing the clovers

2. Place in water

Fill your bowl of clovers with water and gently press them down into the water so they can soak. Be careful not to tear or crumple them.

Drying the clovers

3. Soak off excess water

Use pliers to carefully pick out the clovers and set them on a paper towel to soak a bit of the excess water, then transfer them to a clean surface.

Flattening the clovers

4. Flatten the clovers

To flatten the clovers, start by gently pressing down against the stem to break it. 

Pressing the clovers in a book

Then, lay a book across them and let them sit.

Adding gold paint to the resin molds

5. Add gold paint to the mold

Prepare your mold by using paint to create designs you like. The molds I’m using come with the hole already punched, so take that into consideration when you create your own resin flower jewelry.

6. Surround the clover in resin

Use a craft stick to gently pour enough resin into the mold so it just barely covers the bottom.

Gently place your flat clover into the mold. In the bigger molds, I added two or three clovers. Place them however it looks good to you, then use the same craft stick to pour resin over the clovers.

7. Cure and remove from molds

Once the resin has cured (dried and hardened), remove your jewelry from the molds and inspect them.

8. Remove imperfections

Sometimes, the resin can stick together, overflow, or settle wrongly and create imperfections so use a precision knife to cut off any extra bits and make sure the jewelry looks how you want it to.
