What you'll do

Learn how to make your own jewelry from real flowers in this fun and creative workshop! You'll choose from hundreds of unique botanicals (many of which I've gathered and pressed/dried myself) for your uniquely beautiful pieces.

By the end of our class, you will know how to:
- design jewelry with preserved botanicals
- mix, pour, and work with resin
- cure your resin pendants
-understand how to attach resin pendants onto finished jewelry (resin takes 24-hours to cure and we offer the option to select one of our pre-cured resin pieces to learn the process of jewelry assembly for one of your pieces.)

**Please note that resin is a special material that takes 24-hours to transform into beautifully cured pendants. We offer complimentary first-class shipping to any address in the United States. International shipping is available at an additional charge.

I also offer itineraries for team building, birthday parties and corporate events. Feel free to reach out if you’re interested!

At the end of class, you will have created two custom pieces of botanical jewelry, all 100% uniquely yours!

Your pieces will come with complimentary stainless steel hardware. Upgrades to brass, sterling silver, 14K gold plated, rose gold plated, and 14K gold filled are available for an additional charge.

My name is Sam and I'm a collage artist who has been experimenting with found objects for 10 years. I run Oddflower Studio, a small resin casting studio in West Oakland. IG: @oddflowerstudio

I teach my guests how to create beautiful, functional art from seemingly ordinary objects. Most of the flowers and plants in my studio have been locally sourced and hand-pressed or dried in-house.

Where you'll be

During our class, we will be working in my private, plant-filled, sun-drenched studio in West Oakland's warehouse district -- home to many other artists and craftspeople. The space includes ample seating and space to learn, chat, and enjoy our refreshments in.

Sam was really amazing and patience with my personality (being indecisive). She really helped me feel valued and was able to understand my jewelry style with great guidance and support. I ended up two two sets of beautiful earrings. Did this class with my friend. Sam's class structure allowed her to teach the class and make beautiful artwork/jewelry while able to chit chat and hang out with my friend. I'd highly recommend this class to anyone that is looking for a class to take solo or to hang out with a friend(s) while producing one of a kind personalized jewelry!

I would do this again! I booked this experience for the Valentine’s day and it was fun and unique. We (2 people) not only got to participate in a creative activity together but also had 4 beautiful flower accessories at the end. We absolutely love our creation!! In addition to the activity itself, chatting with Sam and other guests during the process was enjoyable as well. Sam was friendly, attentive, patient, and helpful. Her studio space was hip and cozy. I can’t wait to come back and make more flower accessories for my family and friends <3

This experience is for people who are passionate about art and crafts. I had a lot of fun designing and making my jewelry pieces (almost too invested). I had some great conversations with Samantha, she was friendly and encouraging the whole time. Definitely recommend you all to do this if you appreciate some quiet and creative moments in your trip.

Loved this experience! I wanted to try it before I buy everything at home to make it. Only spent four days in SF and had a great 2 1/2 hrs creating jewellery. Samantha is a patient and kind person and lovely to talk to she is passionate about her little studio and very creative and she is very good in teaching others. Definitely recommend this activity for friends or booking it as a gift for someone.
