If you want to make a few, gather your materials!
- modeling clay (I used Fimo Classic)
- X-Acto knife
- oven and baking pan
- liquid gilding (I used Martha Stewart brand in Gold, Brass, and Copper)
- small paintbrushes
- bamboo skewers
Start by molding a small amount of clay into a strip that's square on all sides. Make sure the strip is long enough to wrap around your ring finger.
Bend the strip into a circle and gently press the ends together.
Take your knife and start carving away. First, carve off the excess near the backside of the ring where the ends meet, and around the sides (where it will be between your fingers). This step will take away some of the bulk of the clay so that the rings fit neatly on your fingers.
Then, on the front side of the ring where the majority of the clay remains, start to carve facets and angles at random. There's no right or wrong way! You may have to experiment a bit to get the look that you like. Make a few!
Bake your ring according to the directions on the clay package. After they've cooled, paint your rings with the liquid gilding. I found that they dried well suspended on bamboo skewers.
Make sure that they're dry, then stack 'em up and wear 'em out! And don't be afraid to experiment with other shapes, sizes, and colors. Have fun!
