I love BIG statement rings...I've seen them posted everywehere from faGlshion magazines, Instyle Magazine, Seventeen, and Lucky to d.i.y fashion blogs like, Glitter N' Glue and  Refinery 29. Even being showcased on some of today's hottest starlets like, Reality tv starlett and pop princess, Empire Girls, Adrienne Ballino to rap superstar pop-princess, Nikki Mannaj.  I wanted to create my own statement ring that I could rock all season long and this quick and easy diy is super simple to create.  It would be a true fashion crime to do make your own.
