Retired - Gold Doris Day Ring

Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Intermediate
Add instant sparkle to your wardrobe with this glamorous vintage-inspired ring. The spiky bead caps are a fun contrast to the dazzling SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS crystal chatons.
  1. To make this ring, please first watch the video: How to Use Crystal Clay.
  2. Next, the making of this entire ring is demonstrated in the video: How to Make a Ring Using Crystal Clay, Bead Caps, and Chatons.
  3. If you prefer to not watch the video, below is a very brief overview of what to do to make this ring:
  4. Mix up a large pea size amount of Crystal Clay. Pinch off about a one third of the clay and roll the rest into a ball. Place the ball on the glue-on pad of your ring finding and flatten slightly so that it forms a dome shape.
  5. Place 12 or 13 bead caps into the clay (however many you can fit), their narrow tapered end being inserted into the clay. See photo for placement.
  6. Now take your pinched off amount of clay and pinch little balls off of it. These should be about the size of a 2mm bead or approx the size of a large pin head (those yellow pins used for sewing). Place one of these little balls into the center of one of the bead caps on the ring and then use your magical pick to place a SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS crystal chaton into it. Repeat this with all of your bead caps and chatons.
  7. Let cure overnight.
