Introduction: Sprinkles Ring/Pendant

About: Hey! My name is Stella and I'm 50% Romanian and 50% Greek, but I currently live in Thessaloniki, Greece. My life was always been about crafting and fixing things. I tend to think about other uses of things tha…

If you're searching for a simple, cheap but pretty and colorful jewel, you' re in the right place. This could be nice for you or as a gift, for a friend.

Step 1: Ring's Tools & Supplies

Step 2: Ring

  1. Pour the sprinkles in the bottle cap and arrange them as you like.
  2. With the syringe, drain equal amounts from the two parts of the resin and pour them in the small mixing bowl.
  3. Stir the two parts with a wooden stir stick until you have a homogeneous mixture. Don't worry about the bubbles, we'll blow the most of them.
  4. With the syringe drain the mixture and pour it on the sprinkles and be careful to spread it on the inner edges of the bottle cap.
  5. Let the bubbles emerge on the surface and blow them with the flame of the butane torch. Be careful not to burn the resin.
  6. Let the resin dry at least overnight on a flat, horizontal surface. To protect your project from dust, you can cover it with a bowl for some hours and then uncover it.
  7. When your project dried completely, glue the ring on the other side of the bottle cap using a strong glue or (as I like to do) use the same resin you used to cover the sprinkles.

Step 4: Pendant

  1. Choose a beer cap. I chose mine by its colour. I think that bright colours fit better in this project. You can choose your cap by your favourite beer or logo too.
  2. Find a drill bit with the same size as the jewelry wire and drill a hole on the beer cap.
  3. Cut the wire, bend it at one end to remain on the beer cap (mine has a nail head, so I didn't have to do this) and pass it through the hole.
  4. With the round needle nose plier bend the other end of the wire to form a loop.
  5. Pour the sprinkles on the cap and rearrange the pieces as you like.
  6. With the syringe drain the mixture and pour it on the sprinkles and be careful to spread it on the inner edges of the bottle cap.
  7. Let the bubbles emerge on the surface and blow them with the flame of the butane torch. Be careful not to burn the resin.
  8. Let the resin dry at least overnight on a flat, horizontal surface. To protect your project from dust, you can cover it with a bowl for some hours and then uncover it.
  9. Pass the necklace cord through the loop and you are ready to wear it!

    You should really seal the sprinkles with resin too. If you don't, they'll fade or attract ants. Otherwise, this is a cool piece! :)
