Trendy material for the DIY scene this year is clearly the concrete! With the artificially made stone, many great things can be modeled and beautiful designs can be realized. For example also wonderful jewelry, which can be designed in different ways. Because of what woman can never have enough? Right:pretty accessories in all possible colors and shapes.

Rayher Hobby has brought a whole lot of unique utensils on the market with which the rustic design of simple concrete can be beautifully decorated.The many ideas immediately captivated us and so we had to try the whole thing once.You can see the result here and of course we will supply you with the DIY instructions.Important tips for crafting concrete jewelery are included in HEALTHINCLUDE.COM! And the first one is: It’s not hard, but it takes time and you should definitely bring enough patience!

You need:

Jewelery-concrete (mixing ratio 5: 1 with water)
Libra
silicone molds
Bending rings 8 mm and 4.6 mm
Two flat-nose pliers
Ear hooks, chains
brush
Scotch tape

For decorating with deco metal:
Deco metal flakes, chalk color
Deco metal protective lacquer
Deco metal moulage milk
For decorating with mirror foil:
adhesive film
mirror film
For decorating with chalk color:
Chalk color (here in Apricot)
pearl

  1. First of all you have to stir the concrete into the silicone molds and let it rest for about two hours until the concrete is dry. Do not fill too much concrete so that the hole through which the mold can be used as a pendant is not covered. Please make sure that the mixing ratio is right so that your concrete molds do not break, because the trailer must be very stable at the upper tip where the hole is located. Only in this way can it be worn later without breaking.
  2. After the concrete is dry, carefully remove it from the mold. Fits here also at the sensitive place around the hole particularly and starts there, the concrete from the form to loosen. When some concrete has spilled over the rim, it is not a problem, you can sand the shape straight on the sides and also on the back with fine sandpaper. Now you can decide how you want to decorate the concrete. We have tried different variants:

Decorated on the left with deco metal flakes, in the center with mirror foil, on the right with chalk color

  1. Deco metal flakes
    3.1 Deco metal is especially good when it is in contrast to the color of the concrete, so a part of the concrete is covered with tesafilm, so you can ensure a straight edge as you move from film to concrete.

3.2 Apply the applied milk evenly on the non-glued part, let it dry for about five minutes and place a metal flake. Now brush the material smooth with a brush. Work with clean brushes and hands, so that the flakes do not stick to you or the brush and you destroy them so. If a hole remains, simply lay a new flake and smooth as before. Then apply the protective lacquer.

3.3 Now attach the large bending ring at the upper end and attach the chain or orh hook as desired using a smaller bending ring.Voilà finished is the jewel!

  1. Mirror film
    4.1 If you want to use the mirror foil, take the foil glue and carry the desired motif or lettering on the concrete.Wait until it is dry (this is the case as soon as the adhesive has become transparent) and then place the mirror foil, the glossy side pointing upwards.

4.2 Now press well over the material so that the film sticks to the adhesive.If it does not happen at the same time, simply peel off again, reposition the foil and move it over again with your finger and press firmly.

4.3 A chain or an ear hook can also be attached using the bending rings.

  1. Chalk color

5.1 For painting with chalk paint used best a great shape, as we here the circle.Stir the chalk paint before you put it on!Now cover the half of the circle with tesafilm and paint the other side evenly with chalk paint.Even if it does not look like this, a layer is sufficient, so make sure you apply the color evenly.Let it dry!

5.2 Now you can attach a bead to the chain with a chain pin or a bending ring and attach the chain to the trailer using a large bending ring.To open the bending rings, hold it flat with a flat-nose plier and bend it with another flat-nose pliers.The result is impressive!

Have fun imitating!
