Wow--it's hard to choose a favorite; they are all so excellent! I think maybe the Breakfast at Tiffany's one, but wow--they are stupendous! I'd love info on how you made these if you want to share. Neato!

Wow, thanks everyone! Thanks especially to littlepunkkitty, who's the new owner of the crest ring!

Making them is fairly straight forward; the most time-intensive part is finding the cool buttons (scouring thrift stores, garage sales, antique shops, etc.). Then I clean them up and remove the shank (the loop part in back). If you decide to try this, I would recommend wearing eye protection, as those plastic/metal bits go flying! I carve the remaining bump flat, and then attach the button to the ring blank using epoxy.

If you decide to make any I'd love to see them! I love the look of these...I'm so tempted to keep them all for myself! lol!  Cheesy
