Ringing in the Weekend

     Many times I start off a tutorial saying how easy it is- well, today is no different. I'm going to show you how to make a ring that is very easy and affordable!
     I started by getting two pendants from Wal-mart for $3 each. You could find these at Hobby Lobby and use a 40% off coupon which would make your ring even cheaper!
     I had this pack of blank ring backs - a 3 pack for $2.99 (which I did use a coupon on)- so each ring today cost me less than $4. You can't find that at your local jewelry store!
These are my supplies. I also used E-6000 glue.


First, I trimmed off the loop for the necklace.


You may need to use a metal file if the loop doesn't cut off evenly.


Then you just glue the blank ring to the back of the pendant with E-6000 glue. Allow 24 hours to dry. Then you have a beautiful ring that hardly cost you anything!



Here's the first one I made. Nice, huh?

I really like this one. I've been eyeing rings like these online.

Here's the black ring with a bracelet I already had. Looks fantastic together if you ask me. :)

Oooh la la. This little turquoise ring is going to get a lot of use!


      Wouldn't a ring like this make a great gift for a friend? You don't have to spend a lot to give a nice present.

     Thanks for stopping by and God bless.
