There is a lot of LOTR themed, and "One Ring" jewellery out there. I wanted to make one with a difference, So I decided to make a round pendant, with a black background circled by the inscription from Sauron's Ring of Power, but glowing in the dark!

Step 1: Materials Needed;

You will need the following;

-Inkjet water slide decal paper
-UV resin (Resin which hardens under a UV light)
-A UV light (I used a cheap UV nail box)
-Glow in the Dark Powder (I used Orange)
-Mixing Tray
-Mixing Stick
-Acrylic Sealing Spray
-A pendant Bezel
-Mixing tray
-Mixing stick
would there be any way to do this around an actual ring rather than a pendant? <br>
Hi, I really love this idea! If I may make a suggestion, I would also tell people to try using clear injket labels. It might be easier since its peel and stick. Other than that I never thought of something like this. Again great idea.
This is great, I'm sure I'll make one if I can get the materials, one question, though- does it have to be UV resin, or would glow paint or glow powder in regular resin work as well? Just wondering if there's a specific reason you used UV resin ^-^
Hi there! Sorry it took so long to reply, I had actually replied last night, but it doesn't seem to have submitted properly!<br> <br> To answer your questions;<br> The glowing powder would work perfectly well in normal resin. I chose the UV hardening variety for a few reasons:<br> <br> -The 2 part resin has to be mixed and, depending on the brand it is anything from a 50:50 ratio right down to a 1:100 ratio, it can get messy and awkward, especially for very small amounts.<br> -The 2 part resin can take anywhere from 6 to 24 hours to harden depending on brand, temperature and humidity of your workspace.<br> -The 2 part resin can be extremely smelly, and the fumes can be toxic, requiring you to wear a bulky respirator<br> - a regular mask will not do. And the UV one is completely odor free.<br> <br> I hope this answers your questions, if you need anything else just let me know!
Very nice!
