DIY: Knuckle Rings




Do you end up buying really pretty rings from shops, then getting home and finding out the horrendous news, that they don't fit? Dun Dun Duuunnn!

I do, literally all the time. They are either too big or too small. I never win when buying rings!

After going through my jewellery today, I realised I have so many rings that I can't part with even though they are too big for me. So I thought that I would turn them into knuckle rings. 
1. It saves me money 2. It's the only thing I could get creative with


All you need is;
Rings that you love - can be too big or too small
A pair of pliers
A pair of hands and a maximum of 8 fingers (And if you really want to get creative, then maybe two thumbs?)

Firstly, slide the ring onto your finger and stop just above your knuckle. Try to estimate how much you will need to chop off, then take the pliers and the ring off your finger (safety first) and chop away with the pliers like so;





 Once done, slide the ring back onto your finger, stopping just above your knuckle. Then all you have to do is adjust it to the size you need so the ring can fit snugly onto your finger.

And there you have it; plain rings to knuckle rings!
