Lost In NYC Ring

About this design:

I have several vintage images of New York City from a desk calendar. I used a portion of this map as the backdrop for the ring. I coiled up wire to represent how we got lost in NYC and straightened it out at the end with an amber bead to mark our destination.

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

  • 1 Ring Bezel
  • Lima Studios 2-part Resin Kit
  • vintage map image
  • 1 round 4mm bead
  • 4" 24 guage wire

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
It is really important to seal your paper before you pour the resin. Once the paper has been sealed, you can pour your resin layering in the wire and bead.
