Retired - Teacher's Pet

Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate
Jump to the Head of the Class with this back to school inspired green and red apple ring.
Before you begin, watch the video on How to Use Crystal Clay.
  1. I recommend wearing gloves for the first part of this project.
  2. Take equal part of both Part A and Part B. Form a ball that is about 22mm (Containing both parts) to fit on the ring finding.
  3. Mix the two parts together in your hands until there is one uniform color with no marbling.
  4. Press your mixed clay into the bezel setting on your ring.
  5. Gently try to smooth out any fingerprints by running the tip of your finger lightly over the surface.
  6. Remove the jump ring attached to your apple pendant and by opening the jump ring with the pliers.
  7. Press the apple into the center of the crystal clay, leaving the center area of the apple raised. you may want to gently use a tooth pick to press the sides of the apple pendant into the clay.
  8. Take one of the beeswax applicators that come with the Crystal Clay kits and place 16 SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS Crystal Chatons in the center of the apple. Press them into the clay so that their edge is just below the clay surface.
  9. Using the applicator, place the remaining Chatons around the base of the crystal clay closest to the ring. I used 25 Chatons to get around the base. Leaving just a little space between each chaton and from the base of the crystal clay.
  10. Let dry in an upright position for 24 hours.
