This lovely pendant contains a single preserved rose petal from roses displayed at funerals, wakes or other such events. Measuring approximately 1" x 1.5" in diameter, they can be made from a rose flower as long as the flowers are thoroughly dried.
We suggest submitting red-toned roses as they will best hold their color; yellows and pink colors will be more subdued. This is a thinner pendant as each side of the rose petal has been layered with transparent resin.
Pendants will be produced within 4 weeks of submission. We will reach out with submission instructions once your order is placed.
This pendant can be purchased with an optional Rhodium Plated Sterling Silver engraved charm. To add the charm to your order, click here, select your charm and add to cart.
Instructions on Pressing Flowers prior to submission
Place the flowers or petals between 2 sheets of parchment paper. The parchment paper is used to absorb excess moisture from the flowers as they dry out. Arrange the flowers so that none of their petals, leaves, If you don't have parchment paper, you could also use coffee filters to the same effect.
Set the sheets between the pages of a heavy book. Use a book that is large enough to completely cover the flowers. If there are ends sticking out from the pages of the book, they won't get pressed. Put the flowers toward the back of the book so that the bulk of the book's weight will rest on top of the flowers.
Stack on 2 to 3 more books to provide extra weight. Again, choose heavy books to provide the most weight. Stack them somewhere they won't get knocked into easily.
Leave the flowers alone for 1 week to allow them to dry out fully. Set a reminder on your calendar to check the flowers after a week or two have passed to see if they're done. They should feel like fine tissue paper. If they aren't done yet, carefully shut them back into the book for another week to continue pressing them.
