Introduction: Ring From a Broken Necklace.

Picture of Ring From a Broken Necklace.

Make a simple ring from a broken necklace.

Step 1: Materials and Tools

Picture of Materials and Tools

broken necklace, cutters, Mandel, torch, flux, solder, helping hands, file, dremel, sandpaper.
As with any project THINK SAFETY !
Don't cut, burn or sand yourself. Believe me it hurts..

Step 2: Measure and Cut.

Picture of Measure and Cut.

Cut chain as close to the pendant. Measure out length on the Mandel and mark. Cut at mark. A Size 7 ring measures 2 1/4 inches in length.
If you don't have a Mandel their are several websites that have a "ring size to length measurement" chart.

Step 3: Prepare to Solder

Position chain into the helping hands. Carefully heat and flux then solder.. Use as little solder as possible but enough to weld it together. Warning getting it to hot will discolor chain.

Step 4: Clean Up the Solder Weld.

File and sand solder down until smooth and polished using fine grit sandpaper. I used 220 grit. Be sure not to remove too much of the solder. It needs it for strength.

Step 5: Give It to Someone You Love.

Now that its finished give it to someone you love.
