Retired - Queen Bee Ring

Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Intermediate
This brilliant cocktail ring is fit for a queen! It features sparkling rhinestone cup chain held in place by Crystal Clay. Perched on top of the Crystal Clay is a highly detailed Nunn Designs brass honey bee.
  1. Cut a piece of rhinestone cup chain that is 15 rhinestone links long.
  2. Next, please watch the video on How to Use Crystal Clay.
  3. From what you learned in the video, mix up a large pea size amount of violet Crystal Clay. Roll into a ball.
  4. Place your cut piece of rhinestone chain into the ring bezel, facing upwards. The 15 link rhinestone chain should make a perfect circle inside the bezel.
  5. Place your violet Crystal Clay ball in the center of your ring and carefully start to flatten it out so that it pushes against the rhinestone chain on all sides. You will want to keep the clay slightly domed in the center and then use just the lightest touch of your fingertip to smooth over the surface of the clay so that any fingerprints or dents are removed.
  6. Take your Nunn Designs brass honey bee and press it into place on top of the Crystal Clay mound in the ring's center.
  7. Let cure overnight.
  8. Enjoy!
