Scrabble Tile Rings & Display

Tuesday, April 16, 2013
These Scrabble tiles had already been prepared with resin* and I hadn't yet added the bails to make them into pendants, so I decided to go with adjustable rings this time - and I think they're perfect! Just a small selection of the alphabet and I hope they find many happy fingers to be worn upon.

Thanks to this how-to for a ring-display DIY at PopkoShop! These rings are available for sale locally, at Apotheca.

If you're looking for resin, this is the kind I used - I'm so pleased - no bubbles and shiny, virtually indestructible coating: ICE Resin Jewelers Grade Clear Casting Epoxy (amazon.com affiliate link).

  1. I have bought some adjustable ring blanks but haven't got round to putting anything on top. This looks like a good idea! I won some resin and jewelry blanks in a giveaway some time ago but because it came with a CD full of instructions, I just could not be bothered to figure it out. I will have to look out for the bubbles.

  4. Jane, I've used a few different resins & had some issues with all of them - here are 2 links with info to what I've learned:

  5. Thanks Edi! I kept waiting for some time to add bails and chains to these, can't believe I had them for so long before I thought to add the ring backs. One thing I did differently with the display was to add some super glue around the edges and bottom of the box - as I pushed the fabric in, it dried to be super-secure.
