Happy Monday! I hope you had a wonderful weekend, mine was filled with good food, good wine, and a not so quick shopping trip across the border! I picked up some great treasures, everything was 50% off at BCBG!
Today’s DIY project was inspired by the Catbird’s gold knuckle ring. I love the simplicity of a single thin gold ring and of course when stacked with several others, creates an edgy yet girly look to any outfit (smitten by the way Jules worn them here).
I decided to add a twist to my DIY gold ring creation by making a double ring version attached by a simple gold chain. The result was lovely and I’ve been wearing it ever since. This literally took 10 mins to make and your supplies can make a dozen and more! I hope you’ll give this a try!
- 2 Jewelry gold wire hoops (they typically come in an assorted package of different sizes and one end of the hoop has a loop)
- Thin gold chain
1. Take a smaller sized wire hoop from the package and slip onto your finger just above your knuckle, tighten it around your finger to the desired size.
2. Cut the excess with scissors.
3. Repeat the step above by placing the second wire hoop to the end of your finger, essentially creating two rings one slightly bigger than the other.
4. With pliers create a hook so that it will hook through loop as a closure.
5. Put both rings on your finger, ensure you’re happy with the size of the rings.
6. Measure the distance between the two rings and cut a piece of chain of that length.
7. Attach the two rings by affixing the chain through the loops of each ring.
8. Try the double ring on and make sure your chain was cut long enough so that you can easily bend your finger!
There you have it! It’s so delicate and dainty! I also made a few extra rings, feel free to wear them as singles or stack several together.
