Locket Ring Tutorial {and then some extra goodies}

Locket Ring Tutorial and other DIY Rings
I went to Michael’s {my home away from home} today with no clue what I would be getting for my next project.  I decided to would wait for inspiration as I walked the isles.  As soon as I hit the jewelry isle I was “inspired” to create this Locket Ring Tutorial.
I love lockets,
and I love rings,
so whats not to love about a locket ring?!
And then I couldn’t help but throw a few extra goodies in my cart to create a whole family of fun statement rings to share with you!
Let’s get started.
Here’s what you will need:
Blank ring bases {purchased at Michael’s in the jewelry isle,
see package in above picture}
Any fun jewelry embellishments/locket you want to use on your rings {try Michaels, or any thrift store}
A picture of your favorite person to go inside your locket
Glue gun and hot glue
Scissors
Pencil
I am the world’s worst tracer and cutter, so I did the best I could, and when the picture didn’t fit perfectly in the locket I just glue gunned it into place.
Disregard my janky cutting job.
I used hot glue, but you may want to try other forms of glue {i.e. crazy glue, something water proof, etc} to make your ring more secure.
Be sure to press your locket and ring base together after glueing.  I suggest holding it in placce for about a minute.
And there you have it!
Too cute, right.
Open it up and you get a sneak peek at infant Baby W.
And now on to the extra goodies:
Here are the “extra” ring embellishments I picked up {at Michael’s}
{Plaque Ring}
{Smaller Locket Ring}
The complete line-up of ring awesomeness:
*Stay tuned for a future post on how to package up these rings in a super cute way so that you can give them as gifts*

    I just did a few alterations and made my own rings! Thank you so much for your post & tutorial!

    I found the ring w/ pad at Hobby Lobby (so now I know I can get them from two stores). Instead of the hot glue I bought Jewlery & Metal Glue from Hobby Lobby for just under $5 (and it was on sale too)!

    Again, thanks so much! I am so happy to have just discovered your blog last week. 😀

    to go with the above… my friend 'The Girl Creative' suggested I blog my first tutorial. So I have been working hard on getting my blog set up. Posted the tutorial early this am… Not sure if I did it properly, but I cited you for my inspiration and wanted to let you know. Thank you so much!
