Ring a Bling Bling

by: Dwyn Tomlinson

It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that bling ... .

Surely I must have used that before somewhere!

Our new ring bases are just beautiful - with the heft of fine jewelry.  We bought some big sizes too - so you could even design a signet-style ring for your dude. Probably with less Swarovski's than this though!

Because these are made to be quite random (except for the one with the single rivoli) - take the component list as a starting point - rather than a definitive list.

The basic idea is to use the two-part epoxy clay, make a ball, flatten it slightly onto the top of the ring base, and then stick on the stones, and let it cure.



Tips

Enjoy!
