Rings are one of the easiest and quick crafts to create. Chances are you already have a ton of interesting things in your craft box that can be turned into a unique ring.
- Epoxy or strong jewelry glue that binds metal
- Ring Base
- Something you want to turn into a ring, you could use vintage buttons, watch faces, oversized beads, the possiblities are endless.
- Use a ring base with a large round face almost as wide as the watch face you will be attaching. Sand down any sharp edges on the watch piece or remove them with wire cutters.
- Prepare a spot where the ring can stand up while drying. I like to prop my drying rings in the center of a tin of beads. The beads hold up the ring so that it doesn’t fall over before drying.
- Apply epoxy or craft glue that is strong enough to bind metal objects to the ring base. Place the back of the watch face (or button) on top of the epoxy; make sure that the epoxy is hitting both the watch and the ring base.
- Prop the ring in its prepared spot so that it can dry standing up.
- Let your ring dry thoroughly to set.
- Leave the ring to dry for a few hours. If you are using craft glue, the longer you let the ring dry the better. Epoxy dries instantly, and the ring can usually be worn within an hour.
