Untitled-ringcone-1 Pin-it%402x

Gather your tools and materials. We love the look of cracked pepper added to the clay but you can add other dried herbs or dyes to give it a unique look.

Untitled-ringcone-2 Pin-it%402x

Open the clay and break it in half along the part line. Warm the section by rolling it around in your hands.

Untitled-ringcone-4 Pin-it%402x

Once you have a smooth consistency (about 3 minutes) dip one area into the cracked pepper.

Untitled-ringcone-5 Pin-it%402x

Knead the clay to evenly incorporate the pepper.

Untitled-ringcone-6 Pin-it%402x

Roll it into a ball. Once you have a uniform shape start applying more pressure to one end which will start to create a cone shape.

Untitled-ringcone-9 Pin-it%402x

Smooth out the top and shape it how you like. You can make it taller than this but make sure not to get it too thin or the rings will fall to the bottom .

Untitled-ringcone-8 Pin-it%402x

Stand it up and press down to create a flat bottom.

Untitled-ringcone-10 Pin-it%402x

Repeat with the other side of the clay and place them on a baking dish (do not use wax paper in the oven). We baked ours for about 20 minutes at 275 degrees on the center rack. Follow the directions on the package if you created other shapes to make sure you are baking it the right amount based on the thickness.

Allow to cool. Stack up all your pretty rings to display.

I used leftover pyrite from the Heavy Metals collection instead of the cracked pepper for mine. It created the same effect, but added a little sparkle. :)

Whatever I did wrong here was totally my fault, but wanted to make sure to tell people to be VERY careful cooking these. Mine were in about 10 minutes when they almost started a small fire and filled my house with black chemical-ie smoke. I've had to stay elsewhere for the last day or so while we have a series of fans going. It could have been a number of things (the pan I used, wax paper in the pan, unfamiliar oven, used extra pepper, might have put on wrong temp, ect) any of which would be totally my fault, but be sure to be careful on this one!

@stefaniedorn oh no! The pepper and clay are not something that would catch on fire. However wax paper is not heat-resistant and therefore should not be used in the oven, as the wax could melt, or even ignite. I'm assuming this is the culprit. We only used our wax paper as a surface protector for our countertops. I'll change the copy above to make that more clear! Thanks for letting us know.

I didn't even know how much I would love these until I used them. So perfect for holding my rings when I need to take them off. Now I don't need to worry about where I left it.
