Picture of Ann Adamek, artist

" I am proud to say that I developed this jewelry concept and design beginning about 1994.  I experimented with real flowers that I grew, pressed, and set them in casting resin.  Over time, I have discovered that some flowers maintain their true color better than others, during the process of drying and pressing.  Once the flowers are encased in the casting resin, they will not fade or otherwise deteriorate, and the resin is light weight and extremely durable.
I begin the process by pressing and drying the flowers.  I then paint the inside of the sterling silver bezel to provide value contrast for the flowers.  The flowers are then glued down, and finally, the casting resin is poured into each bezel.  Sterling silver
earwires are attached securely to the jump rings, and a sterling silver chain is available for the pendant.

Jewelry may be purchased individually, or as a matched set of pendant and earrings.

The entire process is tedious and labor intensive, but the finished product is truly a one-of-a-kind, unique creation that should last indefinitely under normal care.  My initials "ALA" are stamped on the backside of the sterling silver bezel in very small letters."  Ann Lawson Adamek
