Retired - Vintage Button Cocktail Ring

PROJECT R1016
Designer: Megan Milliken
Skill Level: Intermediate
Choose your favorite appropriately sized button from our 1/4 pound assortment of vintage metal buttons and create a fantastic and unique cocktail ring.
Instructions
  1. Your antique silver plated Nunn Design round bezel ring has an inner diameter of 20.5mm. Look through the vintage metal button assortment and find one that you like that is about 20mm and will fit in the bezel.
  2. Use a pair of flush cutters to clip the shank off of the button right up against the back of the button. Clip one side at a time. The shanks are hollow, and should be relatively easy to clip through.
  3. Press the cut edges flat using the side of a pair of chain nose pliers. Be careful, the cut edges may be sharp. Make sure the edges lie flat and don't stick up so that your button will sit flat in the bezel.
  4. Place a dab of E6000 glue into the ring bezel. Press the button into place and allow the glue to dry thoroughly.
  5. Allow the glue to dry completely before wearing.
