{DIY} Delicate Chain Rings

A DIY tutorial for making delicate chain rings and knuckle rings
As much as I love larger-than-life statement jewels, I'm definitely having a delicate-ring moment — especially of the knuckle persuasion. So when I had a little extra chain left over from a recent jewelry-making sesh, I thought I would whip up a couple extra rings as well. This one's beyond easy, so if you find yourself with some scrap chain, definitely give it a try!

SUPPLIES NEEDED: Chain | Decorative Element | Jump Rings | Pliers

For a slightly more embellished knuckle ring, measure the width of your finger just above your knuckle, then subtract the length of your embellishment. Cut the chain a couple links shorter than that to account for your jump rings, then join all the pieces together using your pliers. It's as easy as that!
