Pressed Flower Necklaces for 18" Dolls

 Pressed Flower Necklace for Dolls
I have been making pressed flower jewelry for a long time, but I had never thought to make a necklace for one of my daughter's dolls.  This is an 18" Journey Girl Doll named Merideth.

I usually use a flower background on my pieces, but this one is unique in that I just used the silver pendant as the backdrop.

This pink necklace has dyed Hydrangea petals as the background and white Queen Anne's Lace in the center.

This last necklace has a cream rose petals as the background and white and pink baby's breath as the main focal point.

If you would like to make a necklace for one of your little one's dolls, just go to any craft store and purchase a chain that already has the clasp connected (seen below).  If you already work with jewelry and have the tools you can just cut one of the links that is NOT on the side of the clasp.  Then, add a jump ring to the end of the chain.  You can find many ready to wear pendants at the craft store.  Just slip the pendant on the chain and you have a necklace for your doll!
