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

This is one of those 'get your finger noticed' kind of rings isn't it? I do love the colors you used & think you're wicked clever to have made your own wider base to attach so many nut shells to your ring base! Wicked awesome ring!
