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*

Happy Crafting!

Fun ring! I went to Michael's today, too. Went in for foam board & came out with too many things from the jewelry aisle!

What a cool idea! I have a bunch of boring plain lockets - I was going to embellish them to hang on chain - but never thought to make rings!

I love your tutorials. I am the crafts coordinator for MOPS and I think I'll be using 3 of your ideas.....you are very inspirational and I very much appreciate the simplicity yet elegance of all your crafts

I have been looking forever for ring bases.... thank you for the tip, I will give Michaels a try. Love your locketring!

This is a fun idea and the looks can vary so much as long as you have the base. Too bad we don't have a Michael's (or anything like that) on the islands. :( I just have to try to stock up on some things when I go to the mainland. Clever idea!

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. :D

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!
