Button Statement Rings

I'm kind of big on change.  Up until I got married, I'm not sure I spent more than a solid year of my adult life in one house/apartment/condo - I enjoy things being different and fun and new and exciting.  Which is why it's kind of funny that I married my exact opposite.  My husband is a routine guy.  He likes predictability and routines.  He rarely ventures off the path that works for him.  For example?  Just about every morning since we got married, his breakfast of choice has been blueberries.  SERIOUSLY.  Just blueberries.  Sometimes he'll have a breakfast bar, sometimes an english muffin if we have them, and for awhile when I was making my smoothies every morning, he'd have one of those too.  But 90% of our married life has involved my husband having blueberries for breakfast.

I, on the other hand, get on "kicks".  There was my oatmeal and fresh fruit kick.  My toast with peanut butter and bananas kick.  The smoothie kick.  The english muffin kick.  The cereal kick.  You see where I'm going?  I need to change it UP.  I don't want it to be the same!

This applies to my jewelry as well.  I think we are all aware by now that I love accessories.  The more the better in my book - but since I'm always trying out new and trendy styles when it comes to jewelry, it doesn't make sense to spend a lot of money.  Investing in a piece that is classic and can be worn for years to come is one thing - but a chevron necklace is another.  Right??  

I love the statement jewelry trend that's been around for awhile.  The big, oversized and sometimes slightly gaudy pieces are right up my alley.  I think that's why the button statement ring pin I stumbled across got me so excited.  You can check out this tutorial from Glitter 'N Glue - but it's pretty simple.  

I went to JoAnn's and picked up a pack of 8 rings with the flat tops for $3.19.  Then you'll need decorative buttons and some really powerful glue.  I used E6000.  

You'll want to use some pliers and remove the button hook from the back of the button.  I didn't try to remove it from anything plastic, but I'm assuming that won't work so well - so stick to metal.  The little hooks come off surprisingly easy.

Then you'll just glue the buttons onto the rings and let dry!  Yep, that's it.  And you can make as little or as many as you want because THEY ARE SO CHEAP!  

If you already have the buttons and glue like I did, you're looking at 8 rings for $3.19.  AMAZING.

This way, you can join the big gaudy statement ring trend without breaking the bank - and you can change up your jewelry whenever you feel like it!  I LOVE doing stuff like that!

So what is your favorite item of jewelry?  Is there something you never leave the house without?
