Block Party Ring Instructions
Designed by Artbeads

Color blocking in geometric shapes is a hot look for clothing, so take it to the next step and rock it on a ring! You can mix up the color palette with your favorite shades or follow our pattern that incorporates a touch of mod inspiration.

Step one:
Arrange the Swarovski flatbacks to your liking so the pattern fits perfectly inside the silver-plated brass 21mm square bezel adjustable ring. Set the stones aside.

Step two:
Mix a dime-sized amount of equal parts A and B of the DeCoRé crafters clay in Jet. Fill the bezel with the mixed clay. Read our Handy Tip if you need help working with epoxy clay.

Step three:
Use knotting tweezers to place each flatback in the bezel, gently pressing them into the clay. Allow the clay to cure.

Step four:
Use a polishing cloth to clean any residue off the finished piece.
Approximate size: Adjustable
Estimated time: Less than 30 minutes (plus dry time)
