Hey everybody. Huge thanks to Kitty for letting me come guest post today! I'm Steph from Crafting in the Rain and I blog about all the little things I do to keep sane during months of rain and gray skies here in the Pacific Northwest (thought it does make everything green and beautiful!) Today I'm sharing an easy ring tutorial.
I've never been much of a ring-wearer. One of the reasons is that my fingers are just so darn tiny (it's amazing I can play the piano at all.) As a reference point, my wedding ring is size 4 3/4! That means I never really find rings in my size. And even the adjustable ones almost seem to pinch before they fit. At least I know I'll never be accused of having man hands! (though strangely, after posting this picture of my hand, I'm suddenly more self conscious of sharing it than of sharing my face :)
Anyway, I recently purchased these earrings on clearance for a few dollars, but found that they didn't lay right on my ears, so I'd never be comfortable wearing them. But I still like the chunky look of them.
I ended up clipping off the post off the earring and using E6000 to glue it to a small strip of leather. Then I wrapped it around my finger for sizing and stitched it together with some invisible thread. I tried hot glue at first but it didn't bond well with the leather and came right apart after it dried.
I can't guarantee that this is a super durable creation--perhaps if I were to acquire some welding skills or something I could come up with something a little more stable, but I'll bet I get a few uses out of it and it will be fun to wear around and pretend like I'm a fashionable ring wearer :)
So if you liked this little creation, I'd love for you to stop by and say hi sometime. We already have something in common because together we're cheering Kitty through law school!
