Sugru: Update

28th January 2013

Back in November I posted a video by the folks at Sugru.

We were so intrigued by the stuff we bought a bunch at Christmas, gave some away as presents and kept some for ourselves.

This is my first Sugru fix.

My brother and sister-in-law bought me the most amazing ring when they were in Venice on their honeymoon but the back fell off and I could never get another one to glue on properly. I had a couple of quotes from jewellers who said they’d have to remove the lead to set it properly, which meant it was going to be expensive to fix (and I liked the lead).

To be honest I was a little sceptical about how well it would work, so I went all out and actually made the full ring out of Sugru. As you can see it worked. Very well. Almost too well in fact! My next plan is to get rid of what I made, buy a small silver band and use a blob of Sugru to attach it to the glass so it’s a bit more delicate!

I’ll keep you posted.
