Look for really pretty pieces of mosaic at the tile store. There are lots to choose from. From handmade and patterned tiles to more simple smooth ones, the color choices are endless. Buying a couple individual pieces of mosaic tiles, or even a single sheet, doesn’t have to be expensive, even if the square foot price is quite high. Make several rings in different colors and designs and you can match them to your outfits. • You need a ring, which you can find in a craft store. • Glue the mosaic onto the ring using really strong glue.
A whisk attached to a screwdriver or drill makes it a bit easier. • Gloves. Concrete is quite corrosive and dries the skin out. • Mask. Avoid inhaling concrete dust. Start by pouring a small amount of water into a bucket and then add the concrete powder (read the proportions for water/concrete on the packaging). It’s quite easy to mix concrete using common sense, especially if you are only mixing a small amount. Stir, whisk, and mix carefully with a spade or whisk—if you are making a whole bucketful we recommend a whisk—until the consistency resembles thick porridge.
Place double–sided tape (carpet tape) on the front of the tile so it covers the whole tile but not the edges. This ensures that the tile stays in place but is kept clean of concrete. • Slightly moisten the tiles so they don’t absorb too much water from the concrete. • Place the tiles in the molds, front facing down. • Cut a piece of chicken wire to reinforce it. • Mix the concrete according to the instructions on page 12. • Pour the concrete into the three molds. • Gently tap the molds on the ground a few times to remove any air bubbles.
