Stackable Bezel Rings | DIY Tutorial

It’s been a while since we’ve done a ring tutorial here, and it’s about time for another one. The rings we’re showing you today are super easy, and extra adorable. We’ll be using Nunn Design’s Itsy Bezel rings, and you have the option of using either a diminutive button, or a two-hole cabochon, (or whatever you might have on hand to fill the bezel. Crystal Clay gives more options too.) Both fit perfectly in the Ring bezel!

These rings look great on their own, but I think they’re even better when stacked, or when you wear multiple rings at once, and another option is to wear them on a chain instead of your fingers.

I promised I’d… Continue reading Burnished Cicada Ring | DIY Tutorial

Polymer Clay Gemstone Rings

One of my weaknesses is huge, chunky stone rings. I haven’t learned how to set stones yet, though, so I wasn’t sure how I could make my own. Then I remembered this amazing marbled polymer clay tutorial by Laura at A Beautiful Mess, and I wondered—could I make polymer clay faux-gemstones and bake them right into some… Continue reading Polymer Clay Gemstone Rings
