I have been looking forever for funky, cute rings that aren't a billion dollars...to no avail. So, I bought some wire and busted out my button stash and made my own. I'm pretty happy with them, considering it's my first attempt at wire wrapping. They were really fun to make!



The colors are off in all these pics: the greens and oranges are darker than the pic--much more vivid and awesome, in my opinion. The star looks super glittery and a LOT like a big fat diamond ring when you glance at it on my hand. Fun to wear on my left hand to freak out my friends. Good times.


Size reference!


Backs. I like the messy-ish look for these, which I'm claiming as my reason for highly imperfect wire wraps.  Wink



C&C welcome! Thanks for looking at my humble display of awesomeness. Hehehe... Cheesy

I think these look fantastic! I especially like the ring with the button that looks like it has printed words on it. Good job!

Thanks, guys! Super sweet of you to like them. The one with the words is my favorite, I think. Smiley I wish I had more of those buttons! So much potential! Cheesy

Very cute.   Cheesy Isn't it fun wearing stuff you've made yourself? So much better than something that everybody else has. I like the big orange and green one.  Smiley
