DIY fashion rings





Several days ago I found this post featuring some diy rings. I remembered that I had vintage earrings and supplies to do this and just hadn't gotten around to it. So last week I started working on some of my own.

I sometimes work on projects a few minutes at the time, so this one went like this: Wednesday- pick out earrings and findings to use and remove clips,




Thursday- buy more ring blanks because I have picked out more findings than I have bases for. Attempt to use hubby's dremel to sand down rough edges and act pitiful because I'm actually scared of grinding off my fingers. I think he was afraid of the same results so he did it for me. Friday- dinner out, so skip working on the project. Saturday- glue tops to bases. Let dry. Sunday- wear one of my new rings.

Here's a closer look at some of them:


I just had to do some mint green ones to go with one of Spring's trends!



The last one reminds me of this one I found online at Loft:


Hope you are having a great week! I'll be sharing these here:

  1. I'm jealous! Thos are great vintage earrings you have there. I wish I could be pulled away from my vintage earrings enough to turn them into rings without wanting to wear them in my ears. Great job you did. Love the wooden one with multi-colored beads.

  4. What a great idea! I love how they turned out. And I'm glad you have a husband to do the grinding work- I would be scared to do that too.

  8. What a cool idea... and such a neat way to honour some old jewelry that would otherwise be tucked away. Genius!
