5 Minute Ring

Rings made from metal wire and buttons.

These are not made to stay with you for ever and ever, but they are fun to make and you can make them fit any outfit you have.

All done in 5 minutes

Look for some button combinations that you like with two button holes

Wrap some metal wire around a, let´s say a watercolor brush, but you can use anything you have that fits your size

Leave enough to wrap around the ring shape and pull it tight

Slide the buttons over the extra wire and these ends around a pincer

Make sure the buttons are secure but don´t pull it to tight……
With mother of pearl you need to be a bit more careful!

Experiment  with different ways to secure the buttons
Or use some beads.
I tried to give it some more color with adding nail polish to the metal.

Again these are not gonna last forever! 
But they are so easy to make and all done in 5 minutes.

Have fun Chicas!

  3. You quite literally had me at '5 minutes' I also like how you use buttons - I love them and the twirly bits on the top of the ring. I think this will be added to the 'to make' list right now in fact. Pinned!
