Inspired by the popular “arm” and “finger” parties that everyone seems to be sporting these days, I too love piling on thin stacking rings to create the layered look. I don’t, however, enjoy shelling out my paycheck just for a few thread-thin rings! Here’s a simple and affordable way to get this look for less.
Silk cord in the color of your choice
Jewelry crimp beads (If you don’t know what these are, here’s some handy info)
Jewelry pliers (Normal ones will do, too!)
1. Gather your materials.
2. Cut a few strands of the cord at least 3 inches long
3. Thread both ends of the cord through the crimp bead and slide the loop onto your finger.
4. Pull both ends of the cord so that the loop is snug, but not too tight around the finger you wish your ring to fit. Holding the two ends of the cord in the same hand that it is on, take the pliers in your other hand and squeeze the crimp bead! Being able to slide the pliers under the crimp bead should ensure that you can slip it off your finger easily.
5. Slide the ring off your finger and carefully cut the loose ends as close to the crimped bead as possible. Be sure not to cut the wrong part of the cord!
6. Make one or as many as you’d like and start stacking!
Wear them alone or spaced apart for a different look. I like having a few of the gold colored crimping beads showing for a little sparkle.
Let me know if you try this out! I’d love to see you make it your own by posting a pic of your finished stacking rings on The Lovely Dept. Facebook page.
