I LOVE the red one!

I think they're great. Shocked I'd definatley wear one and the idea is so simple. How have you made the ring for your finger or have you just made a circle of wire??

Thanks for sharing the idea now you know what I'll be up to in the future Grin

I think they're very neat. If the single strand of wire gets uncomfortable, you could make it a bit bigger than your finger and then wrap another length of wire tightly in a coil around the base strand. I very well might try this next time I get some good wire.

Those are nifty!  I just got a big bag of buttons yesterday at Hobby Lobby in the remnants section. I didn't have any ideas for them at the time...

Is there any way we can see the underneath side of those rings?

oh for the underneath it is just two pieces of wire...actually I started with one and bent in in 1/2 and then threaded the loose ends through the loop and just measured to my finger to the size and then kinked it and added the buttons...nothing fancy.....the one I did twist the two wires together to make a baraid so to speak. But nothing fancy Tongue
Thanks for the compliments Smiley
