DIY GIFT IDEA | Gold Gilded Geode Ring

11.26.2012
The holiday season is my favorite time of the year!  To celebrate,  I will be dedicating all my DIY's for the month of December to the holidays, including a few gift giving ideas.  I always love gifting handmade jewelry, and when I saw this inspiration I knew what my first holiday DIY would be.  I love how luxe look!  It's a great update to a DIY favorite.  Here is how to make a gold gilded geode ring for yourself and loved ones. Have fun!  Full tutorial after the break...

Materials:
- geode (here or here)
- ring blank (here)
-  liquid gilding (here)
- e6000 adhesive

2. Add a generous amount of e6000 onto the flat side of the ring blank.
3. Place the the bottom of the geode onto ring blank.  Press in place for at least 30 seconds.
4.  Place upside down and let dry overnight.

So friggin cool! Looks like a super expencive ring. Love it!
Although I'm personally way too clumsy to wear something like this.

That is an amazingly simple yet awesome idea!

these are beautiful, but I don't believe that would be a permanent fix to the ring. I've done stuff like this before but I wrap the stone in some polymer clay and use the polymer clay and a bit of adhesive to wrap around the bezel of the ring without inhibiting the adjustableness. and I coat the polymer clay with a golden or silver-tone powder and seal it. it can still break, especially if the bezel on the ring is poorly soldered. the clay adds an extra layer of security, and you just have to bake it. I've only used things _similar_ to e6000 so maybe I'm wrong.

Thank you so much for the tips. I'd love to try this out too. Where can I buy the supplies? The e6000 has been holding up really well, but I'm open to learning new things.
