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

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.

    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.
