majorairhead:  I baked mine dry. 395 for 3 hours. Let it cool in the oven. So funny about the kids! My husband got up one Saturday morning,  heard the oven and asked me what Iwas baking. Poor guy… no goodies AND your wife’s a nut.

2nd round was early Sunday while everyone was sleeping.  No questions that day!:)

So I finally had time to try this! I actually saw this beauty on amazon and decided to get it as a filler while my e-ring is in the shop! Here are my results!

This is when I first got it

 

This is after I baked it for 2 hours at 350 F (no water)

 

I think there is some difference and it doesnt look as cloudy! I will do it again sometime this week.

I really wish I had before pictures. There ia more depth and the color isn’t as icy or glassy.

I bought a berrincal ring as a stand in while my set was in the shop. It’s got that blue hue so many since im off tomorrow ill give it a try with the baking process. Can i do it in a toaster oven? It has a stay on option.

Do you do this with the ring too? Is it safe for sterling silver? I have some lovely earrings I’d love to try this on but I don’t want to ruin the metal.

I just did this and not sure if I like the result. It looks yellower but almost with a brownish cast over it.

 before and after my first bake. Two hours no water @ 350. Looking at doing it again today. Just not as deep as I’d like. I’ll post again later!

second time baking. Dry on 350 for three hours and 400 for one hour. Not a huge difference… But noticeable difference.

MrsJBaranick:  I can definitely see it in yours. You would fool me with that ring!
