I don't know where she purchased those "globe" ring blanks, and tried to find the blanks but couldn't really find a good source:

http://images.google.com/images?q=ring+blanks

There are various of the bottom parts like she used though online:

You could perhaps find the plastic half-globes somewhere, then choose a ring blank that's flat on the top and would fit it that globe, and make yourself.

The inside of the globe part is probably filled with mineral oil or glycerin, or 50/50 water & glycerin and it's probably glued down with a 2-part epoxy glue. 

Does that help at all?

Hello,

I am the seller who's items are in question. Without causing much trouble, I'd like to say that this post is slightly offensive to me and my ideas. Supporting handmade art is very important to me. It is insulting to know that instead of wanting to purchase the item that was my original idea, you would rather buy the supplies and make it yourself. I would hope that my item is not assumed to be so simple to make.

From time to time people have written to me and asked where I get my supplies because they would 'like to make their own'. This statement is offensive to someone who originally had the idea and spent a lot of time and wasted a lot of supplies perfecting the technique. While I am flattered that you admire something I've made, I hope you see where I'm coming from.

I am a self taught crafter and a single parent who works a full time day job as a waitress. I work very hard to find the time and energy to keep my shop up and running. I have been very lucky to find a niche on Etsy. My ideas are what have kept this shop afloat. I hope that you understand that there is a difference between taking those ideas to copy, and finding your own inspiration from the items and making something new and original from them.

Good luck to you and your crafting adventures.

I don't remember the seller, but I got some of these domes on eBay a while back, and you know what, TheTinyTiara? - the domes were packaged with the same exact ring blanks that you're using. So, how can one use these domes with these ring blanks in a way that's different from clear magnifying cabochons? I know - by enclosing something that's not flat. I mean, if that isn't what they were designed for, then what is? Ok, well now, how would one use them in a way you wouldn't find objectionable? Omit glitter? ...

aisy, here's a supplier I found for you with a quick google search. Have fun - that's what this website is about Smiley
