DIY: Jewelled Rings

Hello all!

I have not blogged in ages as exams are approaching soon and I've been knee-deep in notes, flashcards and textbooks. Nonetheless, I have a really quick DIY for you today to satisfy any crafty cravings and to prove to you that yes, I am still alive!

You will need:
- wire
- wire cutters
- superglue
- jewel beads
- some round object the size of your finger

Let's begin!

1. Take your length of wire and wrap it around your round object, forming an O.

2. Slide that O off the object and cut down the middle as indicated below:

You should end up with what is essentially a massive jump ring.

3. Open the ring as you would with a jump ring, and slide your bead onto the ring.

4. Close the ring and superglue both ends together. Slide the bead over the two glued ends and add a drop of superglue into the hole of the bead to fully seal everything.

Voilà! You're ready to rock your jewelled ring!

I was inspired to make these rings because I have just finished watching Star Wars Episodes 1-6, and - aside from being fully caught up and psyched up to join the fandom - it got me thinking about character aesthetics and what colours would represent them. The black ring was made with Darth Vader in mind because when watching RotS, I remember thinking, "That is one hella shiny suit!" Keep up with my Star Wars obsession here on my tumblr c:

Anyways, I've been and will be posting considerably less due to exams, but a cheeky post may spring out once in a while. Be updated every time I post by following me on Bloglovin here or subscribing to the mailing list on the side bar!
