Rings Part2 {GIVEAWAY} *CLOSED*

I just had thee most GLORIOUS time making bead-cluster rings! I got the idea from my sister-in-law's ring she wore this past Sunday...I was so excited to give it a try! And lucky for me, I didn't have to pay a cent! I had everything I needed at home!
Find yourself some of these... head pins for beading.
Put on your bead, and then cut the other end, leaving it long enough to make a loop.
Use the pliers to cut and make your loop.
Once your've done this to all your beads for your cluster,
loop them all onto one bead ring. THEN, loop THAT ring onto a button that looks like this...

Then glue the button onto an adjustable finger ring!
shake it around and feel pretty!
You can mix and match fun color schemes to match your wardrobe!
and then keep shakin' it...
I dont wear necklaces often, because usually my wardrobe speaks enough,
so I'm more of a bracelet and ring kind of person. Well I couldn't stop!
I had to make MORE RINGS!
So I went through my odds and end jewelry bag of stuff that has potential...
I got these at Michaels for $2...
I took the centers out...

Then I modpodged some map paper in two of them!
Covered the map with some Mod Podge Dimensional Magic
(which I'm now in LOVE with)...and attached them onto rings!
They had pretty embelishments on some shot glasses at the dollar store...
I bought a few of the glasses, and took the embellishments off...
Then I turned it into a ring! (This one's my favorite on)...
Well, I gathered up some yellow lace, cut off the lining,
and then rolled up the lace to make a pretty flower ring!
Did the same to some ivory white lace as well...
This is a hand on the hip kind of ring!
I had leftover buttons from making my matching hats...
And glued in a picture of a bird and nest...
(And then used the Mod Podge Dimensional Magic
to tickle my fancy and gloss over the bird)
This is a necklace from my grandma. I dont wear it...
Now I do...
This pretty lady was a necklace clasp in it's previous life.
But I thought it was too pretty to be at the BACK of a neck...
This darn thing wouldn't stay in my hair...
So it's glued on for keeps...
This was also an overly gorgeous necklace clasp...
That now shower's my ring finger in black and white pearls...
I bought this ring at the D.I. for $1...It's big and my favorite color...
But once I put it on it was too plain.
I didn't want to take away from the color, so I added a little butterfly...
(And used some more Mod Podge Dimensional Magic to top it off...)
AS FOR THE GIVEAWAY!..(sorry to take you on an especially long night,
where my husband works graveyards, and I give in to my "girl time" needs
by embellishing my fingers).
I made too many, and made some DOUBLES!
SO...
2 winners will be chosen to pick from below...
(sorry this pic is so bad! I took it at night and had no natural light like the ones above.
So you can look at the ones above to see what it looks like)
To ENTER:
Just tell me where you'll show it off!
Only ONE comment per person please!
Winners will be chosen in one week
*September 10*
(The day before my birthday)
There's nothing better than giving on your birthday!

First off, CONGRATS. You're mug ONCE AGAIN won me a ribbon at the state fair. You rock my camera. It was an Honorable Mention ribbon. Second, I would feel glamourous wearing ring #1 at four events coming up in 2010.

1- a benefit concert for a local girl who is paralyzed, 2- my bff's benefit concert who is battling breast cancer
3- my november choir concert and
4- all of my christmas concerts with my students and some fun solos i'll throw in there

Ring #1 one wants me to wear it while I'm singing, it told me so, it texted me.

Love, T
