Hi, guys! Today, I’m going to show you how to make resin-pressed flower jewelry. This tutorial is great if you’re a resin beginner or you just want some resin jewelry ideas. Let’s get started!

Tools and materials:

  • Resin
  • Resin hardener
  • Earring Blanks
  • Dried flowers
  • Jump rings
  • Fishhook earrings
  • X-Acto knife
  • Plastic containers
  • Popsicle sticks
  • Tweezers
  • Pliers
Pouring resin and resin hardener

1. Pour equal amounts of resin and resin hardener

Pour equal amounts of resin and resin hardener into two plastic containers. You want to make sure that both amounts are exactly the same.

2. Pour resin into the hardener cup

Pour the resin into the hardener container. Use a popsicle stick to scrape out all of the resin inside of the cup, and then give it a very good stir.

3. Pour the mixture back into the resin cup

Then, pour it back into the original container the resin was in, and again, scrape the sides to make sure you get all of the resin. Mix it again, and repeat this process a few more times.

Using tweezers to arrange flowers

4. Arrange your earrings how you like

Next, I have these earring blanks and these dried flowers that I got from my local craft store. You can also find flowers out in your yard, just make sure they are small enough. Use a pair of tweezers to place the flowers inside of the earring blanks, arranging them in a way that you like. For the teardrop earrings, I used two of the white flowers.

For the triangle earrings, I used the greenery pieces.

Gently pouring the resin into earring blanks

5. Pour resin

Once I have them set, I’m going to gently pour in the resin over top, making sure it doesn’t come out too fast.

Wiping away spilt resin

If any oozes out over the side, I’m just going to take a piece of paper towel and wipe it away.

6. Blow out the bubbles

Use a straw to blow on them gently to remove any air bubbles.

Leaving earrings to harden overnight

7. Leave overnight

Leave the earrings to sit overnight until they’re hard.

Trimming excess resin

8. Trim excess resin

Once they’ve hardened, use an X-Acto knife to trim off any resin that spilled out from underneath or over the sides. You can also use a bit of sandpaper to smooth off any resin.

Attaching jump rings

9. Add jump rings

Once the earrings are done, it’s time to attach the jump rings. Use pliers to attach the larger jump ring to your earring first.

Then place on the smaller jump ring, and close the larger.

Attaching a fishhook earring

10. Attach the fishhook earring

Before closing up the smaller jump ring, attach a fish hook earring style to the jump ring. Repeat this process with your other earrings until you’re finished! You can also use a kidney ear or a lever back style if you don’t like the fishhook.
