DIY: Marble & Gold Ring

DIY: Marble & Gold Ring

Feb 26, 2016

Marble is everywhere lately! For years I've seen countless DIY projects online for faux-marble iPhone cases, marble trays and even marble purses!

 

So as I was flipping through Glamour and saw some Marble & Gold rings by Capwell + Co, I decided I may as well jump on the bandwagon (even if I'm way late to the party) and make my own version. #fakeittillyoumakeit

You'll need:

Marble image, printed on paper

Mod Podge

X-acto knife

Old Paintbrush (for the Mod Podge)

Piece of gold jewelry (I used an $4 ring from Charming Charlies, but you could use whatever so long as the surface you intend to cover, is flat-ish)

Scissors (not shown)

E-6000 glue (not shown - sorry! I didn't know I would wind up using this one!)

I wanted the marble to be intermittent so I chose to cover the large diamond grooves on this ring (this would have been mountains easier if I had just picked a flat triangle pendant necklace to cover, but leave it to me to bite off more than I can chew out of pure excitement!)

First, cut a rough shape of the surface you'd like to cover, out of your marble paper.

Use your X-acto knife to adjust the cut-out as needed.

BEFORE GLUING, if you have multiple surfaces of the same size to cover (like the multiple diamond shaped grooves on this ring), use your ideal piece as a pattern to cut out your remaining pieces.

Use your E-6000 glue to adhere each marble paper piece to your jewelry surfaces. I didn't have this glue in the original picture of "items needed" because I hadn't planned on using it, but it turned out better than trying to use Mod Podge to adhere the paper to the jewelry. 

Let it dry for an hour or so, and then using your old paintbrush, cover your marble pieces of paper with Mod Podge (for protection).  Wipe off excess Mod Podge from exposed jewelry sections.

Adjust any errant marble pieces that may have moved either glue application, and let dry for 24 hours.

Go be fancy! And store it in your DIY Jewelry Dish when not being worn ;)
