Retired - Moonshadow Ring

PROJECT R3009
Designer: Karlin Jones
Skill Level: Beginner
This unique ring combines a touch of glam with sparkly black chatons and also a bit of edge with spiky CzechMates triangle beads. It's an eye-catching accessory.
Instructions
  1. Add a dab of E6000 glue onto the flat pad of your adjustable ring and place your scalloped bezel setting on top, flat side down. Set aside to dry.
  2. While your ring is drying, watch the videos on How To Use Crystal Clay and How To Use a Magical Pick.
  3. 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 an oval shape.
  4. Place your mixed Crystal Clay into the bezel setting on your ring. Gently mold it into the setting making sure it spreads out and forms a slight dome in the center.
  5. Now you will begin embedding your black and gold CzechMates triangle beads around the edges of your Crystal Clay.
  6. Take your first black triangle bead, and with the pointy side up, embed it into the black Crystal Clay starting at one side 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. Continue all along the inner edges of your ring, until you go all the way around with 10 triangle beads.
  7. Next you will begin adding a row of 8 gold triangle beads, in the same way and as close to the black triangle beads as possible. See photo for placement assistance.
  8. At this point, use your fingers to push the clay up around the bezel of the ring, cleaning up any excess Crystal Clay. Also, scrape any Crystal Clay that may be seeping through the scallops on your bezel setting.
  9. Next using what you learned in the Magical Pick video, pick up each black chaton one by one (starting with a large chaton in the center) and cover the remaining Crystal Clay in the center without overlapping the chatons.
  10. Let your ring cure overnight and enjoy.
