This tutorial shows how to create a Leaf Textured ring using silver metal clay and a skeleton leaf.
It is written for artists with advance knowledge of working with metal clay and does not review basics, like using natural balms to coat your hands and tools and keeping your clay wrapped any time it is not in use.
* 25g of silver metal clay * 1 large skeleton leaf * Metal clay syringe (with 22 gauge/blue tip and tip submerged into a container of water)
* Ring mandrel * Teflon sheet (2 pieces) * Roller (with thickness guide) * Tape * Tissue blade * Small paint brush (for working with water) * Large dry paint brush * Container of water * Mug warmer * 600 and 1000 grit sandpaper or sanding pads * Crossing diamond needle file (or half-round diamond needle file) * Ring pellets (optional) * Liver of sulfur * Polishing cloth

BY BUYING THIS TUTORIAL, YOU UNDERSTAND THAT:
1) It’s NOT OK to copy or teach or create a tutorial or content based on another artist’s design without that artist’s authorization. Don’t use other people’s content without permission!
2) It is ILLEGAL to do mass purchasing of tutorials with the intent of sharing with others; sharing the cost of downloaded tutorials with others whether they are members or not, or soliciting others to purchase tutorials that they have purchased.
3) Be careful with what you say about another person’s work, or you could be accused of defamation.
BOTTOM LINE: Do NOT share tutorials. If the design is not yours, before creating a tutorial, get permission from the original artist first. They may not want to teach or not be inclined to write a tutorial, so you could strike a collaborative deal together. If you are in doubt as to who the original artist is, it is probably best to find a different project to work on.
What is ”Substantial Similarity”?
Sometimes artists create similar items or pieces inspired by other artists. To determine if a piece has substantial similarity, try this test: Ask an unbiased, ordinary observer (a person who is not familiar or exposed often to jewelry design) if they could recognize one piece as being appropriated from the original. Simply changing the construction or the color of a bead is often not enough. If both pieces look similar to an ordinary observer, then they are too similar – do not proceed. To fall under the category of “Substantial Similarity”, a piece must be considered in its entirety. Certain individual elements of design are considered “public domain” for their generic nature. Therefore, certain elements or techniques do not fall under the scope of Substantial Similarity.

Returns & exchanges
If for any reason after receiving the ring(s) you decide that it is not what you wanted, you can return it(them) IN THE ORIGINAL CONDITION for a full refund (minus the shipping) NO QUESTIONS ASKED within 7 days of receipt. ORIGINAL CONDITION means that the item has not been worn (shows signs of wear).
***Engraved rings are NOT RETURNABLE, so please double check your sizes with a jeweler.***
I use a standard US mandrel to size rings. Should your ring still not fit, I will gladly resize it for a $10 charge plus return shipping to you.
For a free ring sizer sent to you in the mail please visit
WIDE rings (6-10mm width) run 0.5 sizes larger than rings up to 6mm in width, so your rings will be made larger by default. If you sized your finger using a wide band, please, let me know that you would like to keep the size at stated to avoid having the ring to be too large.
All my items are made to order. Each item will be individual and unique and vary slightly from the one shown in the picture.
