Botanical Jewelry: Botanicals in Resin
Make a pendant, ring or magnet using dried botanicals and other natural elements. Eco-jeweler and Brooklyn Botanic Garden Curator of Containers & Interior Displays, Margarita Poulson, shows you how to use casting epoxy, to dry and press plant materials, to embed pieces in resin, and to finish your creations. Materials are provided, but students are welcome to bring their own dried botanicals, small photos, and bits of paper or fabric. Due to the nature of the resin, individuals with asthma or who may be pregnant should not take this class.
