DIY Hardware Jewelry

Written and Photographed by Olivia Glendale from DIY Mother

About a year ago, I started noticing some of my favorite beauty bloggers sporting fingertip rings. At first, I didn’t really like the concept-perhaps because I didn’t have dainty fingers. But now, after 9 months of pregnancy bloat, I’m starting to wear accessories that fit my fingers and feet again.

I went to my local hardware store and wandered aimlessly around (probably irritating the busy contractors) until I found some pieces that would look industrial-chic; kind of like these Balenciaga rings that came out a couple of years ago.

I spent most of my time perusing the hardware section-specifically the “special” hardware that come in individual packages. Everything probably cost less than 5 dollars, but I can’t remember. I also found some hex nuts, but of course they didn’t fit my chubby hands and I used them on a bracelet instead.

I also had some flexible floral wire lying around, so I decided to use that as a wrap-around full finger ring. I decided not to spray paint them all one color because I like the look of different metals together. How do you think they turned out? What are some of the strangest things you’ve turned into DIY projects?
