About: I am a teacher outside of Boston and I love making cool stuff! Any prizes I'm lucky enough to win will go directly to my classroom (when appropriate) where I teach 6-12th grade English & Social Studies (...

This Instructable shows you how to make a fun and eye-catching statement ring using a geode, ring blank, glue, and paint. Really fun and really easy to do. Great addition to your collection if you're into boho-style pieces. This piece would have looked amazing in gold, but I couldn't find gold color ring blanks.

Step 1: BoM

Geode

Ring blank

Glue/epoxy

Enamel/metallic paint and brush

Step 2: Glue

I decided to put the ring on a piece of rolled up paper towel so it would sit upright while the glue dries. I put a good amount of E6000 epoxy on the ring blank and then set the geode on top and let it set for about an hour.

Step 3: Paint

Full epoxy curing takes 24-72 hours. I just wanted the glue dry enough so that I could add the enamel paint without the geode sliding around. Carefully I painted around the base of the geode and also on the glue.

Step 4: Done!

When the ring has fully cured it's ready to wear!
