Retired - Chunky Labradorite Ring

PROJECT R7004
Designer: Rachel Zaimont
Skill Level: Advanced
Blue labradorite nuggets glow like river stones in the light of a tiny star that dangles daintily down your finger.
Instructions
In addition to the materials listed above, you will also need a face mask and a pair of disposable gloves to complete this project.
  1. Take six labradorite gemstone nuggets (or however many you want), and arrange them in the bezel of your ring in a configuration you like. Glue them into the bezel using Crafter's Pick.
  2. Take one gold screw eye pin and glue it into the bezel near the bottom edge, so the loop of the eye pin protrudes from the bezel. Wait until the glue dries clear before proceeding with the next steps.
  3. Watch our video on how to use Ice Resin. Put on your disposable gloves and face mask. Based on the instructions in the video, measure your resin and stir with a popsicle stick until all striations are gone. Then it is fully mixed, use the stick to drip the resin into the bezel a few drops at a time (you do not need to fill the bezel, only make sure the stones are captured at the bottom of the bezel).
  4. Allow the resin to cure in a dust-free area for three days.
  5. Once the resin has cured, use pliers to open the jump ring that comes attached to one gold star charm. Slide it through the loop of the screw eye pin at the bottom of the ring bezel. Close the jump ring.
  6. Enjoy your ring!
