Thanks orangejfreak!

One of the cool things about these rings, is that if they turn out less than perfect, they can be soaked in water for about 30 minutes and you can salvage the glass and ring. So if ever you are not happy with the results, you get to try again Smiley

The pendants are a lot harder to reclaim. I have had one soaking for 3 days, and it is still holding together.

The glass tiles are specially made pieces of glass that are slumped in a kiln just enough to soften the edges. I found them online at a wholesale glass company. Not sure I can say the name on here or not, but I can message you.

DG3 is not as widely available as Diamond Glaze, I don't think, but it is available online.

Thanks for watching,

John

Hey there,

I found those through a google search for ring bases.

Here's my latest how-to! For those of you looking for a jewelry making process that is more durable, but relatively non-toxic than resin (DG3 is pretty innocuous, but you should exercise care with all adhesives) , I present my Glass Tile Graphic Jewelry. Glass tile over graphics is nothing new, but I have paired that method with a silver plated pendant tray and a silver plated flat ring. The flat ring covers the entire back of the glass tile, making it less susceptible to snapping off, and limiting exposure to moisture. Same goes for the pendant tray.

Judikins DG3 Art Gel is the adhesive that is used, and while it is water soluble, these pieces handle incidental moisture contact very well. When one of these comes out less than perfect, I have to soak the rings for about 15 minutes in water to get them to come apart. I have a pendant that has been soaking for over 24 hours, and while some of the adhesive on the side of the pendants is softened, the glass tile is still stuck fast, with no water seepage into the paper.

Enjoy!
