DIY Curb Chain Ring in under a minute

If you’re anything like me, you probably have a lot of spare chain hanging around your house at any given moment. I hate to throw away scraps – it just feels wasteful to me and I think “there’s probably something I could with this!”

DIY Curb Chain Ring in under a minute!

December brought me an adorable For the Makers box – the Winter Solstice collection – which included this awesome chain “Icy Fringe” necklace.

 After putting together my necklace I had about 2 inches of chain left over. One day on Pinterest I spotted these super cute rings by A Splendid Assemblage:

But I didn’t have any ring blanks – so I thought.. hmmm I wonder if I could just make a ring with the chain itself? And sure enough – it worked! Let me show you what I did.

Just a heads up – check your finger diameter before you cut – AND don’t forget to take into account the additional width of the jump ring. You could also bling this out by adding a gemstone where the jump ring is to make this fancy 😉

If you don’t have the supplies on hand, you can snag them from Whimseybox – pro members get free shipping, which is a pretty sweet deal!
