Ring Stands

Beth Milner posted a great tutorial for making earrings stands. Click on her name to see the post on her excellent blog.

It reminded me of these ring stands that I made about 7 years ago for an exhibition.

They are simply made from steel binding wire and the uppermost end was balled up under a flame.

They were then painted with enamel paints.

I wanted them to have a shabby look, so I left the wires slightly crooked, and only gave them one thin coat of paint.

Chris, those ring stands look great! Maybe I'll make some too!
