Quick Glass Rings Necklace

About this design:

Using the glass ring connector from Trinket Foundry makes creating a cool focal super quick and easy! Combine 2 recycled glass rings in your favorite colors, add a ribbon or chain and head off to the kids' swim lessons or to lunch with friends :-)

  • 1 large ring
  • 1 ring to fit inside of large ring
  • one ring connector
  • silk ribbon

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Gather your 5 components.
Step 2:
Open one side of the connector just large enough to fit the large ring on. Slide on ring and close with pliers. Attach smaller ring the same way.
Step 3:
String ribbon on top of the large ring through the connector.
Step 4:
Take 2' of Irish waxed linen and wrap around the ribbon at the connector to keep the focal in place. Secure with a couple overhand knots.
Step 5:
Embellish the ribbon with a few quick knots on either side.
