Abby's Earrings Tutorial
Created by: Lindsey Green
Use three layers of Magic-Glos to create the look of the crystal rivoli standing free in the bezel cup earrings.
A piece of Styrofoam® or sponge material works great to keep the jewelry in place. Simply stick the post of the earring inside of the material to keep it level.
Add a base layer of resin to the bezel cup and then cure it with the UV light.
After the first layer is dry, pour a second layer into the bezel. When this layer becomes slightly tacky, place the crystal inside the bezel. This creates a mold of the pointed rivoli underside.
At this point the crystal should stand a little bit on it's own inside the bezel. Place back under the UV light and let it harden.
The crystal should be able to pop out of the bezel at this point after the Magic-Glos hardens.
Finally, squeeze a single drop of the Magic-Glos into the indentation of the riovoli and place the crystal back into the bezel and back under the UV lamp. This final step will secure the crystal inside of the bezel cup.
