I love this ring that my DIL Tiffany is wearing, and I made this one after seeing how easy it is to do at a craft blog called Glitter 'N Glue. There are no diamonds found in this ring, just a lot of sparkle. These are so much fun to make you'll probably want to make a dozen.
To make a ring like this one, the first thing you need is a button. I have a ready supply of all kinds and sizes of buttons from sewing for many years and from saving all those "extra buttons" that come with every shirt or dress purchased. Of course, if you don't have your own supply of buttons, you can always go down to the fabric store and buy a few.
The buttons used in this project don't have eyelets; they need to have a shank on the back.
You'll also need some of these rings with flat tops from a craft store that stocks jewelry supplies. The rings come in different colors of metal and the tops come in smaller and larger sizes.
You'll also need a tube of E-6000 crafters glue, a pair of clippers like these and a sandpaper pad.
Use the clippers to clip the shank off the back of the button. If any rough spots remain, sand them down smooth with the sandpaper, as you want the button to lie flat against the top of the ring. Follow the directions on the glue to attach the button to the ring top, allowing drying time.
I'll wear these when I'm shopping for new shoes.
This one looks like going out to eat.
How about lunch with the ladies?
Just a day at the office.
Dressed up for church.
This ring is the only one that is different - it is not made from a button. This one is made from a pretty coin that was given to me by my brother-in-law.
When you can't make up your mind, just wear them all.
The possibilities are endless. Here are some other buttons I have that could be made into rings. This is just a project to have fun with. Diamonds may be a girl's best friend, but buttons are mighty good pals.
