Here's a super quick video of what I'm talking about. I want to get some rings to do that to, in different diameters, but what do I look for? What are they called?  Huh

I've seen them in the craft department of W**mart, and I imagine they'd be in the section with knitting/crocheting notions.  I can't think of what they're called though. I'll bet someone with more information will come along soon, so just hang on Smiley

I can't load the video, but are they metal rings?

You can get different diameters of metal rings at Walmart, but there is a limited selection. Hobby Lobby has several! They call them "craft rings" and they come in gold and silver tones, from about 1 inch diameter to 5 inch diameter. They also have star and heart shapes.

But... I can't see the video so this may not even be what you mean!  Undecided

I've seen them in about every knitting section sold as knit stitch markers, they should have them in Walmart like wolfgirlie said.

If you're looking for the plastic rings that come in sizes like 1/2", 7/8", 1" and maybe a little bigger, you should be able to find them in fabric stores or craft stores with sewing notions.
I found the coolest black 1" rings at WalMart last week. The label calls them Cabone Rings by Wrights/Boye.
I'm imagining I can leave some of the black showing when I create maybe earrings or Huh?.
You'll probably be able to find them on the internet as well. I haven't actually checked the WalMart web site.
