Retired - Crystal Radiance Ring

PROJECT R617
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Intermediate
This ring is Hollywood glamour at its best! Over a hundred Swarovski Crystal chatons sparkle brilliantly when pave set into white DeCoRe clay.
Instructions
Note: You will need a pair of disposable gloves for this project. You also might use more or less rhinestones then listed in the ingredients based upon how close you place them to each other.
  1. Before starting this project, please watch the video: How to Use Crystal Clay
  2. Based upon what you learned in the video, mix up approximately a small gum ball size (1/2" - 3/4" diameter round) amount of white Crystal Clay. Press this ball into your 30mm gold tone round bezel ring. Smooth out the ball with your finger tip so that it goes to the edge of your bezel (does not spill over) and has a nice smooth dome shape.
  3. Using a Magic Pick to pick up your Swarovski Crystal Chatons, start by picking up one Swarovski Crystal chaton in crystal and place it into the clay, as close to the edge of the bezel as you can get. Place another crystal chaton right next to the one just placed, being careful not to touch or overlap but otherwise as close as possible. Keep working your way along the edge of the bezel, creating a nice neat row of chatons.
  4. After you have completed this first row of chatons, create another row of crystal chatons right next to it, moving towards the center of the clay. See photo.
  5. For your third row of Swarovski crystal chatons, switch to the color golden shadow. Also make a fourth row of golden shadow chatons. You should now be almost to the very center of the clay.
  6. For your fifth row of chatons, switch to the color crystal copper. Complete this row and then add a few more crystal copper chatons in the very center of your clay.
  7. When all chatons have been placed, gently tap down their tops with your fingers to make sure they are set into the clay. Also double check that your dome has retained its curved shape. If it has "squished" out of shape at all, just use your fingers to gently get the dome shape back.
  8. Let cure in an upright position for 24 hours.
  9. Enjoy!
