kitschy ring made of recyling materials and scraps
Because my friend Sheila was almost having her birthday and i hadn't still not a birthday present, so i thought
i will asked her if she likes to have one of my kitschy ring designs of recyling materials.
it's made of a lid of a med tube.
we both have meals from our meds we must taken so i thought this is such a joke.LOL
I didn't had a fitting ringbox for it so i have wrapped him later on in a med box.LOL
so it was a really fitting birthday gift for her.LOL
they weren't the right ones so i had do more work to reshape him to become the one i would like to have.
I made this design for my performances on stage with our tear yearking choire
but later on some friends loved them too much so i sold some of them to them.
it's not sooo difficult to make , so don't worry.
my friend would loved to have the how to she has asked for it much times so here it comes.LOL

Hope you like this tute and give it a try as well, be just creative and thank you very much for hopping by;-D

Thank you Jet for my lovely birthday gift. It looks so pretty with my black lace gloves. Lots of people asked about it when I wore it to see some bands play. So funny about it being made from meds tubes. Thanks for a brilliant tute, now I know how you did it ;D xxxx
