Introduction: Super Easy Stone Rings

I never thought making rings would be as much fun as making pendants. I am always amazed by the way stone chips add beauty to ordinary things like my Beer Bottle Cap Pendant. I you have not seen it. Please check out :).

So this time I will show you how easy it is to create beautiful rings made using stone chips and some pebbles.

Lets get started. I bet once you know how easy they are you will make dozens of them :)

This is going to be over simplistic, consider yourself warned :)

Step 1: Stuff You Need

These are the only items you need to make these beautiful stone chip rings.
  1. Stones chips
  2. Few transparent round Aquarium glass pebbles. You can use colored ones too to match stones. 
  3. Some sort of instant glue like Super glue or Fevi-Kwick.
  4. Some Blank rings (You can get them at crafts store or any artificial jewelry store too)

Step 2: Making the Ring

Creating this ring is more of an idea. Combine this idea with your creativity and you can make many beautiful rings (read things :)). So, to make this beautiful ring, proceed as follows:
  1. Stick the pebble on to blank ring  (Image 1).
  2. Once it is secured, start gluing the stone chips, starting from top center of the pebble (Image 2).
  3. Cover the complete pebble by gluing stone chips all over it (Image 3).

What more you want?

You just created an awesome stone chip ring :). Congratulations!!!

Do share your feedback in the comments below, along with your questions.  

Some tiny tips:

  1. Try using colored pebble, same color as of stone. Forr example green (did you notice I shown green in step 1).
  2. While applying instant glue, avoid contact with hands it may leave finger prints on stones and make them look untidy.
  3. Using tweezer to pick & stick stones can be very handy.

I would love to try it, but here (NAirobi) I don't know where to find the ring base. Any idea what can i use instead? (wires?) thanks

Try using beer bottle caps if you like the bigger size and use super glue to glue it on top of wire ring (use multiple folds).

You can also cut small metal circles to make ring base from beer or soda cans.

You could also use crystal clay or DeCoRe clay (both of which come in a variety of colors) for this purpose. Pack the "bezel" or "channel" portion of a ring blank with the clay and simply embed your stone chips. On YouTube you can find a number of videos showing how to do this with chatons, beads, etc. but there's no reason that stone chips wouldn't work just as well - and perhaps even more beautifully.

I should add that the reason for using a room-temperature-cure clay epoxy such as those I mentioned is that there's no need for a kiln, oven, etc., and there's no possibility of harming any materials with high heat as no heat is required for these materials to cure. Even kids can make beautiful jewelry without risk of being burned.
