Oh my gosh, I feel like I haven't posted a DIY for you guys in so long! But, today I've got a good one. Lately I've really been loving the above the knuckle / midi ring trend. Compared to the giant bauble rings that I usually wear, I find these dainty little rings to be so pretty. However, I've been having a hard time finding where to buy them. Luckily, I've just discovered that they are so easy to make yourself!
All you need is some gold jewelry wire, small beads, wire cutters, round nose pliers, chain pliers, and a cylindrical object that is about the size of your finger. It is better that your cylindrical object be a little too big than a little too small if you can't find something that is the perfect size.
Start by cutting a small piece of gold wire, and wrap it around your cylinder once. Using the round nose pliers, begin to twist the end of the wire into itself. At this point, slip a bead onto the wire at this point, then continue to twist the wire into a spiral. Repeat this process on the other end of the wire.
Now you have a brand new midi ring! So easy, right?
If you want to make a simple stacked-style ring, start by wrapping the wire around your cylinder as many times as you would like. Snip off any excess wire with your wire cutters. Then, so the ends of the wire don't poke your finger, bend them back and squish them together with your chain pliers like I've done in the photo below.
One little spool of gold wire will make dozens of these midi rings, so get creative and try a bunch of different styles so you can mix and match them. The more midi rings the better!
