How to make an orchid necklace

1. I chose this necklace because it had a hole in the middle of the flower pendant. Each piece you work with will be slightly different, so you’ll need to decide the best course of action as you’re creating your piece. Here, I simply put a UGlu® Dash on the back of the pendant.

2. Remove the paper from the glue dash and snip a single mini cymbidium orchid from the main stem, leaving as much stem as possible on the individual orchid.

3. Insert the stem through the opening and gently press against the glue dash.
