Hey,
I came across this jewelry at dawanda and I think its really beautiful.

And here is an example in the dawanda shop http://de.dawanda.com/product/2973838-MAeRZBLUeTENCollier-mit-echten-Blueten-und-Blaettern-Aktion-gruenweisse-Maerzblueten]http://de.dawanda.com/product/2973838-MAeRZBLUeTENCollier-mit-echten-Blueten-und-Blaettern-Aktion-gruenweisse-Maerzblueten

I really like this art and might be persuaded to buy some, but right know I'm really interested in HOW it is done?
The smooth edges look like it was resin, but I can't really imagine how exactly that would work.
The only information on this site is: the leaves and petals are set in plastic (not laminated) and the edges smoothed and polished.

The only things similar I could find were this petals, but they are clearly laminated.

Any ideas how it is done? Other shops that sell similar stuff?

Okay, I'm intrigued as well... I'm guessing it is done with a very thin layer of resin, or maybe even dipped in resin... And now I want one...

Maybe you could post your question over in the random RESIN question thread (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=10667.0). Folks are extremely helpful with all sorts of resin-y advice Wink

My only other thought is it is "plasticized" kind of like they plasticize the human bodies for that body exhibit. But I have no idea how that's done... So I'm betting on resin Grin
