Ring a ding a ling!

Apologies about the title... just popped into my head when I thought about this gorgeous rings I made recently at a workshop at the Birmingham Trade show with Suze Weinberg. She is such fun, and her workshops are always a pleasure. We made them using the meltpot, (now available on the website) and utee, and some great little face moulds that Suze brought with her from the USA. Melt utee in the pot, pour into the moulds, then allow to cool. Pop out the face , and cut to the size of the ring. Superglue in (the last thing you need is it falling out while you are wearing it!) . Then we filled the outside with stickles and little beads. Allow to dry. Mine ended up in my handbag for a while, so I re stickled them when I got home, as the glue dries and shrinks.

A great little project , and an even better one for me, as jewellery is my first love. I will have the rings on the website later in the year. P.S. Hands not my own , much too dirty and inky! , but DD's who claims hers are horrid too, so I cut them off, the hands in the pics...silly! personally they are much better than mine and cleaner.

I will have the project I did with Tim Holtz on the blog later in the week, what fun that was too!

My friend and I were wondering where we could get the rings, after seeing a tutorial video.

Hope they arrive sooner rather than later in the year. The rings are exquisite

These rings are so different, something I'd never have thought of making with the melt pot.
Thanx for the lovely comment left on my blog, glad you liked the stamp, lol. xx

I saw Suze doing the demo of these {on UTUBE as obviously not lucky enough to see her live} and thought they were cool, your efforts are fab.
