Picture of == Mod a cheap plastic ring
I  just love nerdy jewelry, especieally if it's "personal nerdy"; something I'm a fan of. I also love DIY'ing my own jewelry, so when I got a cheap plastic Hello Kitty ring at a friends birthday party I knew I'd scored. But what to make? The ring was cute from the get-go but I was NOT a fan of the kitty. And then it hit me; I could make a Nepeta ring! Nepeta, for those of you who don't know, is a character from the hugely popular webcomic Homestuck. Maybe with this ring I can make some furiends! (kidding)

Step 1: == Prep the ring

The first thing I did was take my ring and try to get most of the paint off. I used pure acetone, the kind Pony-modders do to remove the decorative paint.

As you can't see in the photos, the process actually started melting the ring, so this step isn't necessary. Not to mention the ring just looked dirty when I was done. :((

Step 2: == Cut away the bow

Next, I took a dremel took and, with light gentle little taps on the lowest setting, I cut away the bow so it made the silhouette of what I wanted, a cat head. Keep in mind with the dremel tool that if you go to hard not only to you risk ruining the ring, but you also risk gumming up your dremel tool with the plastic. Take time to pick shavings off the ring so they don't get in your way.

Wow, that's lucky! Does that mean you'll be making this? Quick tip I forgot to add: if you don't have a dremel tool, a file would also work, along with some sand paper, it would just take longer.
i assumed you were a pegasister not a brony which is it

Wait what? Um, both I guess. Whatever works for you, it's both sides of the same coin for me. I just say "brony" because it's easier.
i was basically asking if you were a boy or a girl

Oh! Female, yeah. Sorry, that last question threw me for a loop for some reason.
