Cuff in Miniature

About this design:

The cuffs were so much fun, I decided to try it as a ring! What's really nice about this is that it is adjustable, without looking like those cheapo rings in Woolworth's!


18 ga and 28 ga wire

    Thanks, Sunny, Karen, and Elaine! :D

    I’m still thinking of putting stones in it, but can’t decide what kind of stones – 4 mm might be too large to wrap into it, but I have some 3′s – does anyone have thoughts? I have some salmon shaded coral I’m thinking about, but I have other stones as well (no surprise there… ;-) )

    celebraties are wearing and in the fashion mags?

    Great ring…is it a size 7 perchance? And just where is there a Woolworth’s in this day and age? :D

    Sue, this is a beautiful ring design! Great idea with or without teensy (or not so teensy ;) ) beads! :D

    Thanks, Chickies! :D

    Nancy, it is close to a size 7, but flexible enough to go to a 6-1/2 or an 8. And you are right – I don’t think there are any Woolworth’s left, but I sure miss them! Especially their soda fountain…REAL vanilla cokes…sigh!

    Oh yeah, I remember those vanilla Cokes, and root beer floats… I haven’t seen a Woolworth’s in years, but they sure were popular years ago! Sue, I love this design as a ring! Stones or no stones, I’ll bet these will sell like crazy! :D

    What a great adaptation! I love the adjustable sizing too! I can see this with czech glass or gemstones – wonderful either way!

    LOL about Woolworths! I haven’t seen one of those in decades!
