How To Make A Beautiful Orange Peel Flower - May 8, 2014

The 6 easy steps behind every piece of jewelry in our "Orange Peel" collection.

The 6 easy steps behind every piece of jewelry in our "Orange Peel" collection.

Today we would like to show you how our incredible Colombian women artisans transform orange peels into beautiful flowers, at the heart of our entire collection of orange peel jewelry (steps pictured above).  Step 1, find a ready supply of freshly squeezed oranges.  Step 2, carefully scoop out the pulp.  Step 3, double check to make sure you scooped out the pulp (otherwise it won't dry).  Step 4, allow to dry under direct sunlight in a low humidity environment, but not too long, they might burn!  Step 5, beginning at the top, cut a thin contiguous strip of peel leaving the circular center intact (a little larger then a silver dollar).  Step 6, roll the strip of peel tightly and neatly from outside inward, pin with a large needle and allow to dry for a few days.  CONGRATULATIONS, you have just created a beautiful orange peel flower and amazing item of jewelry, in both a sustainable and eco-minded way!  Very similar steps are employed in all our lines of organic jewelry, allowing our Colombian women artisans to produce individual works of art every single time they create a new item!  Check out many more beautiful orange peel flowers and our entire collection of orange peel jewelry at http://www.colombiangirljewelry.com/orange-peel/.
