Glitter Gem Rings

Making these sparkly rings took me back to my childhood when I used to shop in the mall at those jewelry stores for preteen girls. Everything was so bright, shiny, and colorful. I wanted my glitter rings to look as fun and pretty as the rings I bought years ago. I think I accomplished my goal!

  • Adjustable Ring Bases
  • Mod Podge

  • Glass Gems
  • Elmer’s Craft Bond Ultra Stix All

Steps:

1. Apply a layer of Mod Podge on the ring top, then sprinkle on the glitter color of your choice. Let the glitter and glue dry for about 30 minutes.

2. Cover the bottom of the glass gem with the Elmer’s glue or some other bonding adhesive that dries clear.

3. Press the glass gem on top of the ring. Hold them together for about 10-15 seconds so that the ring and gem can bond together. Set the ring upright until the adhesive completely dries (about 1-2 hours) and the gem is no longer movable.

You now have a ring that sparkles!

 

 

I made five rings that look awesome when the sunlight hits them. The colors are so beautiful. The rings look like they are glowing!
