Retired - Amethyst Cluster Ring

Designer: Karlin Jones
Skill Level: Intermediate
Create this mixed media ring featuring 2-hole Czech glass piggy beads and a sprinkling of gold plated metal beads embedded in Crystal Clay. This unique accessory is fun to make and wear.
  1. Before you begin, please watch the video on How to Use Crystal Clay.
  2. Following what you learned in the video, put on your gloves and mix up a gum ball sized piece of ruby Crystal Clay and place it in the center of your silver plated Nunn Design square ring bezel. Spread the clay to cover the ring bezel, making sure to not get any clay outside of the bezel.
  3. Next, you will be referring to the photo often and trying to mimic the abstract “flower” design I have created. Begin with 10 piggy beads in Chalk White Iris. Embed the 4 beads, 1 in each corner, with the petal-like shape curving inward. Next, add another of layer of 4 piggy beads. Then insert 2 more beads, facing each other in the center. See photo for placement assistance.
  4. Next, carefully add in your 9 gold plated metal beads. Place 4 gold beads in between the 4 piggy beads near the ring bezel, followed by 4 more in the center. You can use a pair of tweezers to push the beads into the clay. See photo.
  5. Keep your ring upward to cure overnight.
  6. That’s it!
