My mom was in town a few weeks ago, and she was wearing this super cool ring. I loved the way it looked, and then when she showed it to me, I thought - hey, I can make that!
So I did.
Here's what you need:
- elastic cord
- spacer beads
- roundelle beads (2 per ring)
- pearl or some other larger bead for the middle
- E6000 glue
Cut off a small piece of cord. Leave yourself enough room to tie and knot it when you are done.
Put your larger bead in the middle with your two roundelles sandwiching it.
String on spacer beads on each side. You can measure with your finger as you go.
Tie a few knots.
Cut off your excess cord and put some E6000 glue over your knot. This will prevent your knot from coming un-done; elastic cord likes to do that if left on its own!
Let the glue dry, and then admire it on your finger. (Yes, my fingers are chubby. I explained yesterday that they are actually just strong from my blogging and piano playing.)
I LOVE these rings, and have gotten so many compliments on them! They are easy and quick to put together. And how wonderful would this be for a pregnant lady! I get pretty swollen, and I'd love to have a ring that doesn't feel like it's tearing the skin off of my fingers when I try to put it on or take it off! These are also great gifts for those whose finger size you are un-sure of.
Don't feel like making one? I'll have some in the shop soon!
Send me pictures if you make one; I wanna see!
