'Sup people reading this post.
This is a ring I made (or composed) from a semi-precious stone and a ring base. I forgot what the stone was called:

The date doesn't make sense, my camera is crazy.

This is a blue semi-precious stone + some kind of pin I turned into a ring. I removed the pin-part with tongs and filed the back until it was smooth. Then glued it to a ring base. Then there is a braided suede cord which I use as both a bracelet and a belt.


I SWEAR it's a coincidence my nailpolish, bracelet and one of my rings match. It's just a colour I'm into right now Smiley

All da ringz including a crazy yellow ring which is something I made but looks weird and wonky and won't show a close-up of Smiley

I only have easy 30 minutes or less DIY's Grin Hehe, I'm too impatient to try bigger DIY's, maybe this summer. I've wanted to learn to sew for a long time, but I think that will turn out hopeless.

Well bye people!

Very cute! I love the idea of taking random objects and repurposing them into fashion and art  Grin

BTW what type of adhesive did you use to adhere the findings and the ring bases? Does it seem to hold well?

What is this "normal" you talk about? Is it contagious? OMG! Stay away! Don't touch me! I might catch your normal!

I used this:

It's very thin, very strong glue, it holds great but you have to watch out it won't or smear onto the stone (or whatever you attach to the ringbase), because you won't get it off (it will produce a matte stain, i once wasn't carefull enough with it when i glued rhinestones onto something, so all of their bling was gone Sad)

Thanks for the sweet comments!  Kiss
