I wore this one to work today as a day long test of the glue's strength and it's not loosened or budged so I think I finally found an adhesive that works without being difficult to work *with*!
One of the things I love about the Scotch Maximum Strength Adhesive is that it is a thick gel which takes about 30 seconds before it starts setting so I have time to get the pieces positioned correctly before letting it cure. Curing takes about 24 hours and when it does, it seems to be really strong. I've applied a good bit of pressure to the rings and they've not loosened at all so far. :)

Here is just a tiny preview of what I am working on. :)
At the top of the picture are rings which are adjustable from a size 5 to a size 10.5!!! I was so excited when I found those ring blanks since my fingers are too chubby for the usual size 6-8 ring blanks. :)
At the bottom of the picture are some pendants I made. Don't those look like real stones? They're not, though. They are images taken from catalogs before going into the recycle bin and then made into medallions with my button-maker. Some of the rings are made using the same concept but some are designed by me.
There will certainly be more about all of this at a later date. :)
