Introduction: Spike Ring

Picture of Spike Ring

This ring creates the illusion of a spike going through your finger, although the ring is SO lightweight you probably won't even feel it. **This project DOESN'T use actual spikes, they're just simply cone bead caps! Much easier to find than real spikes.

Step 1: Supplies

Picture of Supplies


- Jewelry pliers
- Super//E6000 glue

Step 2: Prep Ring Blank

If your ring blank has a loop on it, twist it off with the pliers. Separate the two ends of the ring to widen up it up a bit.

Step 3: Bend Ring Blank

Bend each of the ends out, making them as flat as you can.

I love this idea so much, I tried it, but ended up supergluing all of my fingers together!
haha, I will have to try again with different glue.

At first, I thought it is a pierce! Cool illustration!

How marvelously excellent!

Hm, I'm thinking this could be even more fabulous if the ring on the underside of the finger was "hidden" with a little costume latex, à la this instructable. That way the illusion would work from more angles… but it would be a bit more of a hassle.
