the crafting to relax continues






up now. the creepy cat lady ring
saw a large framed bee ring when online window shopping a while back and thought i'd recreate it. it's not for everyone, but i super ♥ it

steps for the interested:

1. acquire lightweight wire, ring base, and curved washer, and clear liquid glue
2. wire washer to ring base, press wire on top to as flush with washer bed as possible
3. turn ring over and trace a circle out of paper design (mine was a toilet paper ad cat)
4. cut out and trim to fit
5. glue in and cover entire washer surface with thick glue layer
6. let dry (set in candle base and leave for the day)
7. wear with the rest of your big bling
anyone who sees a future in non-paying hand modeling, contact me to apply. i am so not cut out for it ;)
wrote in a parking lot while waiting for the kids today. survived parent teacher conferences and my monday to do list. it's pm and i have more words waiting to come out. good thing i recharged with the upcycling ringmaking

  1. Quite the unique ring.
    So impressed with your craftiness!
    Having 'crafting' and 'relax' together made me smile. So not me. More like stress and crafting goes together. :)
