Turquoise Cabochon Prong Ring Kit Tutorial

Tools Needed:
1 Pair of Flat Needle Nose Pliers

Other:
Wet Wipes (for cleaning)
A toothpick or Head Pin (for cleaning)


Step 1:
Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for the handling and mixing of the Crystal Clay. While wearing gloves, pinch off two equal sized tiny balls of Part A and Part B and blend together fully until the clay is no longer marbled and is uniform in color. You will want to blend a ball small enough to fit into the base of the Prong Setting Ring. You have approximately 2 hours of working time before the clay starts to harden, so take your time. Once blended, roll the clay into a smooth round ball in the palm of your hands. Set ball aside and wash your hands thoroughly.


Step 2:
Using your Flat Needle Nose Pliers, bend back gently the 4 prong settings on your ring. This will allow for you to have more space to insert your mixed Crystal Clay and Turquoise Cabochon.

Step 3:
Place the blended Crystal Clay ball from Step 1into the base of the Prong Setting Ring. Pat the Crystal Clay down into the base of the ring until smooth and flat.

Step 4:
Once the Crystal Clay is inserted into the base of the Prong Setting Ring, take one of the Turquoise Cabochons and gently press it into the Crystal Clay. If any of the clay oozes out of the sides, use a toothpick to scrape along the edges and remove the excess. Use a wet wipe to clean up any clay that gets on the Prong Setting Ring. Once the Crystal Clay dries, it is hard as cement and difficult to remove.

Step 5:
Let the Turquoise Cabochon set within the Crystal Clay (approximately 2 hours). Once it is set, use the flat part of your Needle Nose Pliers to gently push down the prong settings of the ring. You will want to crimp down one side and then crimp the prong setting on the diagonal opposite side. Step and repeat until all 4-prong settings are crimped down.

Step 6:
That is it! The Crystal Clay will continue to cure over the next 12 hours, but your ring should be good to wear. I love the look of these rings stacked together while wearing.
