Retired - Deco Soiree Ring

PROJECT R637
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Intermediate
This luxe ring looks like it would have been worn by a Hollywood starlet in the 1920's. The rich amethyst color of the faceted glass focal looks stunning against the black Crystal Clay and jet black SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS chatons.
Instructions
You will need a pair of disposable gloves for this project.
  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 gum ball size amount of black Crystal Clay. Roll it into an oval 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 the sides and forms a dome in the middle.
  4. Take your vintage German glass amethyst faceted gem bead and press it into the center of your clay dome on your ring. Keep pressing until all the outer edges of the amethyst glass are slightly under the surface of the clay. At this point, use your fingers to push the clay up around the sides of amethyst glass. See photo.
  5. Using the beeswax tipped toothpick that came with your Crystal Clay kit, pick up chatons one by one and place them into the clay. Try and get them as close together as possible but not overlapping. If you are unsure how to pick them up, please see the video on how to use the Magical Pick (it will be the same technique).
  6. Let cure overnight.
