Retired - Midnight Blooms Ring

PROJECT R3010
Designer: Karlin Jones
Skill Level: Beginner
This square antiqued brass ring features a cluster of Jet black CzechMates triangle beads embedded in black Crystal Clay, forming an abstract flower. It's slightly avant garde which adds to its unique look.
Instructions
  1. Begin by watching the video: How to Use Crystal Clay.
  2. Based upon what you learned in the video, put on your gloves and mix up a small gum ball sized amount of black Crystal Clay. Roll it into a round shape.
  3. Place your mixed Crystal Clay into the bezel setting of your antique brass ring finding. Gently mold it into the setting making sure it spreads out to all four corners of the ring. Keep it as uniform as possible, without forming a dome in the center.
  4. Now you will begin embedding your black triangle beads.
  5. Take your first bead, and with the pointy side up, embed it into the black Crystal Clay starting at one corner of the ring bezel setting. You can use your fingers, tweezers or even a pair of pliers to push the beads down. Push the bead about half way down, making sure that the 2 holes are covered by the Crystal Clay.
  6. Continue all along the inner edges of your ring, mimicking the petals of a flower. Once you've finished adding triangle beads along the edges, begin adding them onto the center (in a somewhat circular manner) and cover the Crystal Clay. See photo for placement assistance.
  7. At this point, use your fingers to push the clay up around the bezel of the ring, cleaning up any excess Crystal Clay.
  8. Let your ring cure overnight and enjoy.
