Flower Ring


About this design:

I saw these large flowers and immediately thought they would make a great ring. I love the way the dahlia flower nestles inside of the lucite 5 petal flower. I wanted to create a leafy foliage under the flower so I chose to wrap a green silk ribbon around the bezel before setting the flower in place.

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

  • 1 Lucite 5 Petal Flower 36mm
  • 1 Lucite Dahlia Flower Cabochon 16mm
  • 1 Copper Adjustable Ring Circle Bezel 27mm
  • 2' Fresh Celery Hand Dyed Silk Ribbon
  • Lima Studios Crystal Clear 5-minute Epoxy

Additional Images:

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Apply a generous amount of Lima Studios Crystal Clear 5-minute Epoxy to the center of the lucite 5 petal flower as well as the bottom of the lucite dahlia. Then center the dahlia and press down to make it stick.
Step 2:
Take the end of your ribbon and secure the the inside of the bezel with Lima Studios Crystal Clear 5-minute epoxy.
Step 3:
Once the epoxy has dried securing the ribbon to the bezel, begin wrapping over and around the bezel, then finish by tucking the end of the ribbon into the bezel under crisscrossing ribbon.
Step 4:
Apply Lima Studios Crystal Clear 5-minute Epoxy generously to the top of the ribbon staying toward the center of the bezel. Try to work some epoxy in under the ribbon. Now firmly press your flower down onto the ribbon in the center of the bezel. Use painter's tape to "clamp" the piece together until the epoxy has dried.

    Love the ring! But that’s a lot of work for just one ring.

    I would prefer using materials which are less fragile than lucite, like glass or stone etc, especially on a ring, which may get banged up a lot. However, the thin lucite is pretty.
    As for Adrienne’s comment: you can design as many rings as you want, get ready to assemble them, use epoxy for each step in a certain ring, and I believe that you will save a lot of time. You may need to keep notes of what you want to do in each ring.

    I think the bezel is way to big, and to deep, and ring it self, you can actually buy it and put on it your embellishment, I would buy the ring with flat top disc like, just flat disk, then use the epoxy directly with the flower, it would look very elegant and clean look, very pretty!!
