Its my sisters birthday coming up and I wanted get her something useful for her home. To say she is a lover of jewellery would be an understatement so I decided to make her a cute little jewellery bowl completely with ring stand. This is a super easy project that you can jazz up any way you like. I’ve used air-dry clay to construct it which is so versatile in ways to decorate – the world is your oyster. If you fancy giving it a go, here is how I did it.
Air dry clay
Roll out air dry clay to around 0.25 – 0.5cm thick and cut a circle with a cookie cutter. I used a plain edge circle, but you could use a scalloped edge one, or even experiment with alternative shapes.
Sit this within a bowl to create a slight curve on the edges.
Take a piece of air dry clay and roll by hand into a cone shape – this will be your ring holder. Leave both bowl and cone to dry for 24 – 48 hours.
Sand to a nice smooth finish.
Stick the cone to the dish – I used a hot glue gun – and hide the joint with a little clay. Once dry, paint with your chosen colour. I went for Farrow & Ball.
I chose to embellish with some gold leaf and gave it a coat of clear varnish to seal it……..I hope she likes it!
