Cool Tools resident artist, Karen Trexler studied metalsmithing and jewelry design in college and received a BFA from Ball State University. Karen then continued her studies at the University of Wisconsin - Madison, and received her MFA in the spring of 2018 before joining the Cool Tools team.
In this video, Karen shows how to create an adjustable ring using EZ960 Sterling Silver Clay. She uses the pattern of the texture to create the perfect shape, and sets a 3mm Cubic Zirconia stone in the middle. Once fired, she shapes the piece around a mandrel to form the ring.
