Impressions on Concrete

I lost all my jewelry when there was a burglary in our house. I then decided to make my own jewelry. I experimented with different materials. I liked working with concrete and the endless possibilities of working with this material. I am an artist and horticulturist, so I predominantly use leaves and flowers of weeds and plants that are commonly found in the area. We look at weeds as an unwanted plant but I found a way to make it look beautiful and interesting in the form of a pendant.

Custom and personalized orders

I use real flowers, leaves and objects (example-shells), to make an impression. I also add/embed crystals or rhinestones to the pendant.
You can commission a custom design/impression of flowers, leaves, and objects. Some of the leaves and flowers are seasonal.
It will take 2-3 weeks for a customized pendant to finish depending on the weather.
