My Colorful Bohemian Ring

I call this my Bohemian ring because it has that Bohemian look - colorful, playful and that free spirit attitude. It is made of colorful glass beads and it goes so well with my blue jeans and long cotton shirt.

The copper base ring was provided by my neighbor who, surprisingly, shares similar interests with me - she's a night owl, watches shows like CSI, Cold Case, Law and Orders and loves to make her own jewelry.

So after I moved into my apartment and got to know her, I introduced her to my favorite jewelry stores and she introduced hers to me.

Here's a snapshot of the ring and some of the supplies I used to create it.

Once we went shopping together for stones and findings - that was a memorable day - We stayed in one shop for so long, and nearly bought the whole store.

Most time we visit one another and swap stuff and share jewelry making ideas.

When she heard that I was wanting to make a ring, she searched her jewelry boxes and found this copper ring base for me to work on. It's made of copper with an adjustable band and has loops on the top.

That following night I prepared the glass beads and created this colorful ring.

Supplies for making this ring:

  • Indian glass beads - various colors and sizes
  • copper ring
  • copper headpins
  • copper jump rings
  • 1 inch of copper chain
  • round-nosed pliers
  • flat-nosed pliers
  • cutters
