Otherwise: Secure the ring in a clamp for soldering. Place the paper clip ring over the seam of the coat hanger ring. Orient the paper clip ring so the opening lays over metal. Apply flux and drop in a small piece of solder. Keepsake Pendant. Using a hot glue gun, place a small glob of glue on a piece of CD.

Make sure it’s the same side you removed the silvering from. Place your keepsake on the glue and then add more glue on top of it. Use another piece of CD, silvering side on the inside, to sandwich it all together. Press the pieces together to remove air bubbles from the between the layers. Check Ball Earrings.

Use cone nose pliers to roll a loop at the bend. Make sure when you wrap the loop you use the longer of the two free ends. That way after the loop is complete the free ends will be the same length. Bend the free ends towards the center so that it opens the loop as shown in the picture. Next bend the loops back, working the loop apart. Adjust the loop as necessary so they are parallel to each other. Boat People's vintage and DIY fashion blog - your daily source of OMG.

They are beautiful and I love the trend so I thought I would try making my own. These turned out to be really easy to make and require just a few simple supplies.
