Blingy Button Ring

 Hey Everyone,

I hope you've all had a great start to the New Year!
I had a very busy last quarter of 2015 and if you follow my Facebook page you'll see the work I put into my annual craft market.

Today I'm back and this year I'm hoping to include a number of easy jewelry tutorials again. So lets jump right in...

I saw this really awesome ring in our local store and one day I was digging through my button tin and found a button that looked similar to the setting of this particular ring....

What you need:
A cool blingy button with opening at the back
a few rounds of ring memory wire
E6000 or equivalent glue
silver spray paint (optional)

The button was white and as I wanted it to resemble silver, I taped off the blingy top part and spray painted the bottom bit with some left over silver - alternatively nail polish would also work. Once dry, thread the memory wire through the back.
 Hide the ends in the back of the button and add a dot of glue to secure.

I think this simple little ring would work with any button as long as the openings are at the back of the button. 
I just love it's sparkly bling... although my 8 year old girl has claimed it as her own, and honestly it looks better on her than me!

This is a great little project to do with tweens. It's quick, easy, cheap and the end result is really cute.
