Im a huge fan of statement jewelry. Honestly, the bigger and more obnoxious, the better. Since I’ve been playing around with resin and glitter a fair amount lately (see here and here), it seemed like a natural fit to give ring making a try. Turns out that it’s SUPER easy to make your own rings. And if you’re thinking that glitter is too messy, I promise you that’s not the case for this project. Here’s how:
Time: 15 minutes + dry time
Materials: resin, silicone mold, glitter, plastic cups (for mixing), E-6000 glue, ring backs
My favorite part about working with glitter and resin is that there is no glitter mess. Once it’s in the resin and hardens, you won’t be leaving a sparkle trail wherever you go. I’ll leave it up to you to decide whether or not that’s a good thing.
Mix your resin according to the instructions (1:1 equal ratio). Add about a quarter size amount of glitter to the mixed resin and stir in. Pour slowly into your mold. The molds aren’t very big so you really don’t need a lot of resin.
Wipe up an excess resin on the outside of the mold. While the actual craft time for this project is around 15 minutes, you will need to let the resin harden overnight. When hardened, pop from the mold (beyond easy to do), and glue on your ring back. Let that set and you’re all done!
Easy peasy, yeah?! Plus how great are these going to be to wear to holiday parties?
