Place  the  baking  pan  onto  the  pre  heated   griddle.  One  at  a  time...  place  the  plastic  strips   onto  the  baking  sheet,  making  sure  each  strip  is   secure  to  the  pan  before  adding  the  next.  Allow   the  strips  to  soften  and  seal  together.

Remove  the  baking  sheet  from  the  griddle.   While  the  plastic  is  still  warm,  cut  the  circles   by  pressing  the  cutter  into  the  softened  plastic.   Dip  the  cutter  back  into  the  cold  water  after   each  cut,  to  prevent  it  from  sticking  to  the   plastic.  Allow  the  plastic  to  cool.  Remove  the   plastic  from  the  pan,  and  pop  out  the  circles.

Mix  the  Envitotex  Lite  resin  following  the   manufactures  instruction.  Apply  a  thin  coat  of   resin  to  each  of  the  circles.  Allow  to  dry. Note: I like to place my pieces on a non-stick surface. Held in place by doublesided tape. This way if there is any run off, it will be easy to remove later. Pour the Envirotex into a small squeeze bottle. The application will be more precise. Once the resin has been applied, blow softly through a straw over each piece to pop any bubbles that remain. Envirotex cures completely in 24 hours.

Gather  together  all  your  jewelry  Jindings.  Once  I   have  decided  on  my  basic  ring  designs,  I  like  to   place  all  my  components  in  order.  This  helps  to   make  the  assembly  process  fast  and  easy.   Adhere  the  the  cabochon  and  Jiligree   components  together  Jirst,  using    E6000  glue.   Allow  the  glue  to  set  up  (20  mins.)  before   adhering  to  the  ring  blanks.
