Introduction: 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


- Jewelry pliers
- Super//E6000 glue
- Adjustable ring blank
- 2 cone bead caps

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.

Step 4: Glue Bead Caps

Glue one of the prongs into the inner top part of a bead cap.

Step 5: Repeat on Other Side

Repeat on the other side. Let dry.

Step 6: Wear It

    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.

    Classier than an arrow through the head!

    Ah... nothin' is classier than an arrow through th ehead, except a sword through the torso.
    That said, Cool Ring! Nice!

    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.

    Looks awesome!

    this is great in its simplicity and style. nicely done.

    Love the ring, AND the nail polish color
