What is a jewelry dish?

Basically, an engagement ring dish holder is meant to keep your ring safe when you aren’t wearing it. Otherwise known as a trinket dish or engagement ring holder, they can be both functional and beautiful.

Place a DIY ring holder near your sink—kitchen and bathroom—so you can wash hands and do dishes freely. You could also make a beautiful custom jewelry dish for bridesmaids’ gifts. In fact, these little cuties are SO easy to make that you’ll be crafting a lot.

Your mom, grandmother, and even the guys in your life could use a wedding ring holder dish. It’s a fun craft to make, so let’s get started! P.S. It’s made with polymer clay, so it’s a lot easier than it looks.

Instructions on Making a Mock Vintage Ring Holder Dish

  • Gather all of your supplies.
  • Open your clay, and use 2-3 bars of clay depending on the size of your jewelry dish.
  • Use your hands to roll the clay into a ball.
  • Flatten the ball with your hands, and press your clay to be 1/4″ thick. Aim for making a circular shape that is a little larger than your mason jar lid.
  • Use the jar lid to cut your clay into a perfect circle.

  • Take your vintage glass plate, and use it to press your circular clay flat.
  • Use pressure from your hands to make sure that the pattern transfers to the entire surface of the clay.
  • Carefully lift up the glass, and gently pull the clay away from it. If it breaks, just roll it back into a ball and start over!

  • Lay your pressed circle in the smallest circle of the mason jar lid.
  • Bend the clay into a natural bowl shape trying to distribute the curves in a way that is pleasing to you.
  • Place the jar lid containing the clay onto a baking sheet. The lid will help the clay hold the bowl shape as it bakes.

  • Allow to dry, and enjoy your lovely engagement ring holder dish!
