Make ornament yourself - This is how it works:
Have all the materials ready. Note that we recommend for your materials and workspace to be between 72-85°F.
Step 1: Put on the disposable gloves and mix our EPOXY RESIN according to the instructions in a ratio of 1: 1 by volume. Stir well until no more streaks can be seen.
Step 2: Pour the finished resin into the mixing cups.
Add some gold leaf sheet and metallic pigments according to your color request into the finished resin, stir the resin again thoroughly until it is evenly distributed.
Step 3: Pour the resin into the silicone molds. If you want to embed objects, use clear resin.
Step 4: After 24 hours the resin has hardened and you can take the pendants out of the mold.
Step 5: Next you have to drill a small hole with the awl on the top and bottom.
Step 6: Then you have to thread the nylon thread into a needle and connect pearls with the circles alternately until you have a chain on different elements. This chain is sewn/tied to the wooden wreath. Do the same with the 2 other chains.
Step 7: Next, a pearl necklace is created and this is sewn to the top of the wooden wreath, so threaded through the "branches" again and again.
Step 8: Finally, you have to attach a piece of sisal tape to the top of the wreath so that you get a suspension. Finished!
