When I go to the gym I prefer to not wear my rings – they bug me when I am lifting weights.Each time I go, I take my rings off and put them in my jewelry box, which is on my dresser. The problem with that is they are out of site and out of mind. I forget to put them back on and then it takes me a day or two to remember! I’ve been wanting a ring dish that I could leave on my bathroom counter, but I haven’t been able to find one anywhere. Since I wasn’t finding one, I decided to make my own.
I just rolled it one way then turned the piece and rolled it again, on and on, until I had a nice large circle. If you aren’t getting a circle shape, you can always cut a circle once you have it nice and rolled out.
I then rolled out 1/4 a bar of gold clay and cut out a heart shape.
Place the heart shape on the ring dish and gently roll it into place – bottom of the heart to the top and then side to side.
I used a stamp roller along the edges, just to give it a bit of visual interest.
To bake, I placed the clay on a bowl that is turned upside down – your really don’t want to use this bowl again after using it with clay, so a paper bowl would work well.
My bowl was a little too big for my piece of clay, so I didn’t get as big of a lip as I wanted, but the dish still turned out cute and works for my needs.
Place the bowl on a disposable aluminum dish and bake according to the directions on the clay – mine went in for 45 minutes at 275 degrees.
Let cool and you’re done!
