So the other night I was going to a fancy formal event and realized I needed a little something to compliment my swank gown.  With only a couple hours before I had to leave I decided to sit in my craft room and find some inspiration while noshing on some tasty pistachios. 



Inspiration!  I knew I could make something completely original that no one else would have out of the pistachio shells!!



No time to watch paint dry so I busted out the alcohol inks.  with gloves on of course Grin



I needed a bigger base to realize my idea so found a metal piece on my table (it came in a bag of junk) and glued it on with both a dab of E3000 and hot glue.  I then used the hot glue gun to attach the pistachio shells in a lovely pattern and viola!  Glam ring in under an hour!!

It was a hit at the party, I received so many compliments on my "organic" style Grin

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

thank you!  It is totally extra fancy compared to my daily jewelry, I think matching earrings would be a fantastic idea for my next swanky soiree!
