DIY Dainty Knuckle Rings

Hey everyone!

Here is a DIY post on how to make dainty rings. I've been seeing this trend on many of my favorite bloggers, like Rumi and Jules. They can be sized to your own fingers, and I made some for both my top and bottom knuckles. I've been wanting to try this project for a while, and I'm so glad I got around to it during my day-off! I hope the steps will be clear.

 Supplies: - 20 gauge wire
               - Side cutters to cut wires
               - Round nose pliers to bend and shape wires
               - Chain nose pliers to bend and shape wire
               - Any cylindrical item to wrap the wire around. You can use a marker, lipstick, pencil, etc.

DIY how to make knuckle rings wire easy
 Step 1: Use the side cutters and cut a 3 inch long piece of wire.

 Step 2: Wrap the wire around the marker, to make it into a ring shape. Use the round nose pliers to bend the end of the wire inwards. You have to do this for every ring because the end of the wire is very pokey!

 To make a heart ring: Bend the end of the wire the opposite direction. 

 Bend it again the other way to make a wave-like shape.

 Then, bend it again to complete the heart shape. Making these rings is all about creating the shapes are you want it, so the steps are pretty vague!

 Again, bend the end of the ring inwards and wrap around a marker to shape it as a ring.

 To make an infinity ring: Start with one inwards bend at the end of the wire. 

 Loop around the wire to make the shape of an "8."

 Here is your infinity shape!

 Cut the extra wire off.

 It's kind of hard to see, but I also made a little ear cuff for my cartilage.

 I love my statement pieces, but I think these minimal rings add just enough shine and girly-ness. The only down side is that the rings tend fall off because the wire bends so easily.

Hope you enjoyed this DIY, and let me know if you try it out. :)

p.s. Here are some cute and ready-made options from the web:
