I had quite a lot of fun making this custom made paperweight this last week so I thought I would share it with you. You may remember a previous blog post where I showed you my Haribo jelly sweet engagement rings and mentioned I had been preserving quite a few of these rings for happy couples.
Some people wear the Haribo rings hung from cord as necklaces and others mount them in picture frames as a keepsake for their special day. I wasn’t aware that the use of a Haribo ring as a temporary engagement ring was so common until I started making these but it is! I get requests from people all over the world and even got sent a ring this week from Australia!
Last week I was asked to preserve two Haribo rings within a resin paperweight and this was the result. I was also asked to supply the rings (which I was quite keen to do since I welcome any excuse to buy some Haribos). This proved quite a challenge though since the Haribo rings had to be specific colours. Several bags of Haribo Starmix later (and quite a full tummy), I managed to find the correct coloured rings and here they are.
