tutorial for how to make a ring for your bjd by Dollysmith tutorial for how to make a ring for your bjd by Dollysmith
after successfully figuring out how to make rings for my dolls i thought i try to show everyone else how to make them, can't promise to be good at describing things though.

anyways..

1 things you'll need...never mind the extra random stuff in the picture..

little fake jewels with backs that are flat.
more than one pliers
metal rings (ones that can fit around your dolls fingers hopefully)and fancy metal bead caps for jewelry making
super glue..be careful with that stuff an not get it on yourself or anything you don't want glued together!

2-3 start off with getting one of them rings loosened up with the pliers and slip on two of of the bead caps and have them facing away from eachother like in the 3rd pic. make sure the open ends of the ring remain in the back to make it easier for when you need to resize the ring to be bigger or smaller.

4-5 next flatten them bead caps in half with the pliers and with them side by side that should make a good base. add a little tiny bit of super glue to the center between them to help keep them in place.

6-8 these next optional steps are incase you want to have extra on or to further secure the base together on the ring. take one of the fancy bead caps and then glue that ontop of the base.

9-13 and now for the fun part, putting on one of the gems! chose whatever little tiny gem or jewel you want to use, flip it over to where its set down on its front then drop some glue on the flat back and quickly apply the base of the ring face done on that and press down a bet then lift up to see if you got it on good and kinda in the center on the base.you can now adjust the size of the ring to your dolls finger and close those open ends together in the back with the pliers-gently though!
now you have a ring for your doll!

relatively easy1

for a male type ring I suppose several normal ring could be staked together..

i don't know if that would work or not, i plan on figuring out how to make male rings later when i get some other stuff done.

the problem I can see with making a wide band ring... it that BJD fingers dont squish.. so having a less flexible ring would be awkward

i know bjd fingers can't squish, i would have to it cut in the back like any adjustable ring. i got a few ideas i am going to try out with something i haven't yet tried, i will have to get ahold of some scrap metal later

I know you know that I know that you know... lol


but what I meant was a thinner metal ring band is easier to adjust to non squishable BJD finger than a wide one... b/c the wider the ring the less squishable it is aswell
