How To Make 2 Shiny Statement Rings

You can never have enough shiny accessories. And most of us probably aren't Rihanna with endless diamonds to roll into a joint. So consider adding one of these super easy and super stylish rings, made by two crafty bloggers, to your jewelry box.

First, Dina from A Splendid Assemblage makes a glitter ring.

Here's how she did it.

Gather supplies. You'll need glitter, varnish glue, an adjustable ring with a setting pad, toothpicks, a disposable container (you could just use a paper cup), and a ring cushion.

Pour 1/2 teaspoon of glitter in a disposable container. To achieve a druzy look, you need to add half that amount of varnish glue (1/4 teaspoon). The less glue you use, the more the glitter will "pop."

Using the toothpick, transfer some of the mix on your ring's pad. Hold the toothpick in the middle of the pad and circle it slowly to spread the glitter mix evenly. Once the pad is covered, let it dry according to your glue's instructions.

Wrap the remaining wire around the base of the ring. When finished, push the end of the wire firmly into the ring base and tuck it in under the wrapped wire so that it is not poking out.
