Hi lovelies. I recently made this ring using a pin (like...those pinback buttons), clear nailpolish, beads and a ring blank. I originally made it for my diy blog but I'm posting the general tutorial here! It's super simple and a great way to use up leftover beads. And nailpolish, actually!





Supplies.


After you take out the pinback part of the button, place the beads into the pin and when you're happy with the way it looks, carefully pour clear nailpolish over the beads.


Let dry, then glue it to a ring blank. I made a whole bunch Smiley


<3! Enjoy. If you make one, definitely post it here!

This is quite nifty. I do believe my bestie will be receiving some new rings for her birthday in March. Very creative!  Grin

This is very groovy! Oddly enough what I would like to see done with them is turning them back into pins! Cheesy

They are the perfect size for it after all! Just need pin backs and some good glue. I think they would be super cute on a lapel or scarf. Or even bunches of them all over a purse or vest! Such a great idea and an amazing way to recycle old pins and beads. Thanks for the tute Smiley!

You're welcome! And you can recycle nailpolish too Smiley Since, I know it's not a good idea to use old nailpolish...and I'm sure a lot of us have a ton laying around. Or at least I do haha.

Ooh, you could use up old coloured polish, a layer in the bottom to arrange the beads in then a cover coat of clear!

I was JUST thinking that! I think it'd definitely have some interesting results .... especially if the beads are smaller, or even clear. I think the more metallic nailpolishes would like really pretty.
