Accessorizing in the 90s doesn’t compare to accessorizing in the present day. It was all about bold colors, vibrant textures, and styling in non-conventional ways. Blending into a trend was not common. Instead, you would represent the trend in your particular style, and it was always fail proof. The trends were empowered through self expression. As a result, styling accessories in the 90s was always fun, and full of surprises.

Overall, many 90s trends have come back now. We are seeing them in clothing, hairstyles, makeup, and accessories. One accessory trend that so many have become obsessed with are clay rings. And, the best part about them is that you can make them yourself at home! This not only allows your creative juices to flow freely, but it also saves you money. Create as many as you’d like, and wear them all in various ways. Below are some top ways to style the clay ring trend.

Here is how you can make clay rings at home:

What you’ll need:
Polymer clay (You can find polymer clay at your craft store. If you want to stock up on clay for future projects
Aluminum foil
Mod podge or clear nail polish
Optional: Polymer clay tools
Optional: Markers or paint
Preheat your oven to 275 degrees.
Take out whatever clay colors you choose and start working them in your hands so that they are easy to shape.
Once worked through, roll out the clay in a rope or log shape. Eyeball an amount that will wrap around the designated finger you are creating the ring for.
Once you have your basic ring shape down, you can begin adding designs, textures and other pieces of clay on top of the ring. Have fun with it!
After you settle on your design, put your rings on a baking sheet with aluminum foil and place them into the oven for around 10 to 15 minutes.
Take the rings out of the oven and let them cool for 15 minutes.
At this step, you can draw on the rings with markers, paint or any other medium you choose.
Once you are fully completed and satisfied, paint mod podge or clear nail polish on the rings for a glossy look and let dry.
There is no right or wrong way to go about making these rings. You can twist clay together into a weave design, you can do thick bands with squiggles or you can keep it simple and do solid color bands, the list goes on and on.
