DIY Twilight Ring

I have a love/hate relationship with online beading/jewelry stores. On one hand, it's a great and economical way to get the stuff you want, but on the other hand, there's SO much stuff to look through that you often come away with a cart full of "extras".

One of these extras happened to be this awesome filigree ring setting from Beadaholique:
Isn't it pretty? And only a $1.50!

Anyway, there was a tutorial attached to the listing, prompting me to buy the matching glass stones to put into the setting.  I printed and cut a small Cullen family crest to go inside, perfect for my Twilight-loving friend!
To glue it together I brushed on a thin layer of mod podge. You can see how half of it is dry (clear) and the other half is still wet (cloudy) below:
I love how the orb-shaped glass looks!
Would Edward approve? :)
I'll always have fond memories of seeing the last Twilight movie with my friend M, so I think this was a somewhat fitting gift!
