Hi This is Becky Nunn with Nunn Design, guest designer for Beadaholique.com. I'd like to show you how you can make a wonderful ring such as this using two part epoxy and some pearls and a ornate large ring What you'll need for this video is the ring you'll need a couple of pearls, you'll need two of the mixing cups. I've have already premixed some two-part resin. You'll want to watch a video on how I did that you need a couple of stir sticks. On one of the stir sticks I cut it in half and I'll show you in a bit why we did that. You'll also need some gloves and I always have some wet wipes right at hand You wanna go ahead and put on your gloves and then test to see how many pearls it will take to fill your ring and I've already tested and I have a pretty good idea of about this many. Go ahead and put my pearls into my two-part mixed resin and then I'm going to set up my station in which my ring well rest. I'm going to do it like this. So I'm actually going to use this one cup right here to set up your flat level station so it can rest and then when we're done we'll use the second cup to cover it up allowing it to stay free of dust with your other stir stick you'll want to mix your resin with your pearls I have made this resin quite a bit ago and so it's very very thick at this point and basically I'm just coating my pearls you can see how think this is and it be even a little bit too thick. I would have liked to have it been little bit sooner but you're just mixing your pearls up and coating it with the resin I'm going to drop it into my bezel you might like to have like a toothpick handy so that you can move this down in there. You can see how thick my resin is it's a little bit too thick because it's starting to string like that but this is a good way to set up multiple projects and just when you think you're resin won't work anymore you can throw yet another one in. I might have one or two beads too many there. Go ahead if you have a toothpick handy you want to go ahead and just poke it down into the ring shank moving your pearls where like them to be I have a little space and I have a couple of my pearls left scoop another one I like the purple one whoops I got a little more than I wanted now I'm just making sure that my resin is in all of the different crevices of the ring shank looks like I would like and that is how you make a resin ring using pearls one of the reasons I cut this stick off is when you have that long stick I one time I hit this side and it went boing. Went flying over there put my little cup right there to prevent any kind of dust from getting I'm going to want to come back and visit it from time to time to make sure that I don't have any big bubble starting to pop up or even if there are some bubbles in this particular ring with all of these neat beads and such it's still looks grand you know wanna let that sit for about 24/48 hours until the resin is cure depending on the manufacturer's instructions this is the piece that innovation team member Erin Prais-Hintz did for us shows and it shows what the product will look like. On the bottom part there's an adjustable ring shanks so you can make it whatever size you need it to fit.
