Sterling rings & bails for gluing–exclusively at Rings & Things

February 24, 2009

You asked for it, and we listened! By (very) popular request, you can now buy sterling “glue-on” adjustable rings and oval bails — exclusively at Rings & Things. Glue on your favorite art bead, upcycled found object, or polymer clay creation.

Our new customizable finger rings are sterling silver, 1 to 1.5mm thick. Their glue pad is a textured 7 to 8mm round. Adjust them to almost any size! It’s easy to expand and contract these rings to size them. They come in two styles:

Here’s the “plain” disk finger ring for gluing (item #51-500-02). It’s a 3 to 3.5mm-wide band.

And this is the “wavy” adjustable ring (item #51-500-01). It’s a hammered-disk finger ring for gluing, with a 3-3.5mm wide band.

We’ve also added three great exclusive sterling oval bails for gluing. These have one side smooth, the other textured, and they come in three sizes:
Item #41-592-50 is our small sterling oval bail. It measures approximately 18 x 8 x 3.6mm. (By the way, you can convert these numbers to inches…but on most computer screens our item pictures are life-size.) The gluing surface is 11x8mm. This small bail fits chain or cord up to 2.5mm thick.
The other two sizes of these bails fit chain or cord up to 3mm thick. Shown above is item #41-592-51, the medium oval bail. This one measures approximately 24 x 10 x 4mm, with a 16 x 10mm gluing pad. Below is #41-592-52, our large sterling silver oval bail, at approximately 31 x 13 x 4mm. The gluing pad on it is 21 x 13mm.

To attach items to all of these gluable findings, we recommend using 2-part epoxies. Other adhesives that work well with these rings and bails include:

    Yay! I’m going to start learning how to use polymer clay and once I get good (hopefully!) at it I intend to make some cabochon type beads and those would possibly be great for rings – so how well do rings do? Is it a ‘must have’ item?

    I already have some E6000 so now I really need to check these out in your catalog and get some ordered. I think I might need 1 of each…

    Dawno, that’s a question you and our other commenters will have to answer! I want to know, too.
    These findings definitely make it easy to build good jewelry, so check out those adhesives and let us know what you make!
