Super cute charm ring. Make it as simple or complex as you like!

    It will look like this. Attach to the ring base using a small jump ring using 2 pairs of chain nose pliers. To open and close jump rings hold either side of the opening in the ring with a pair of pliers. Move the ends in a forward and backwards motion. Never pull the jump ring apart sideways, this deforms the shape of the ring.
