Retired - Isolde's Guard Ring

Designer: Esther Lee
Skill Level: Intermediate
Which is a more powerful protector - undying love or a shield? This ring has them both, a beautiful raised heart and a sturdy metal shield are the centerpieces to this striking ring. The perfect ring for a romantic!
NOTE: You will need to use your household utility wire cutters for this project. Do not use your good jewelry making cutters, the metal is too strong and will most likely cause permanent damage to them.
  1. Begin this project by putting on your safety goggles, and using your household wire cutters, snip off the button shank as close to the back, flat-side of the button as possible. You will most likely not be able to remove the entire shank, but just part of it.
  2. Using your diamond file, carefully file down the remaining shank remnant on the back of your button. I found it easiest to turn the button upside down and cradle it in a tea towel, this helped me hold onto the button better and also helped with the filing. Keep sanding it down until you have a smooth back side to the button without any remnant of the shank remaining.
  3. Once you have fully filed down the last remnants of the shank, place a dab of E6000 on the flat glue-on tab of the ring. Flip the ring over, center, and press into place on the backside of your button.
  4. Hold in place firmly for 30 seconds and them prop up so that it does not tip over and let dry for several hours.
  5. Enjoy!
