Symbolic, decorative, functional — rings can be any and all of these things. Share your ring Instructable in the Ring Challenge for a chance to win incredible jewelry making tools: a flex shaft and soldering kit. Maybe yours will be the "one ring to rule them all." (Okay, sorry. Couldn't resist a Lord of the Rings reference here.)

We have a special guest judge for this contest, Shawn Sims, from NOTlabs. Shawn is the Director of NOTlabs, the experimental design studio of NOTCOT. While the NOTCOT websites have been a source of creative inspiration since 2005, NOTlabs turns the inspiration into creations. In the lab filled with lasers, 3D printers, toys, electronics, power tools, and more Shawn leads special projects from robotics to car design, architecture to 3D printing, and more — making NOTCOT dreams a reality!

Upon publishing your Instructable you'll see checkboxes for open contests. Select Rings Challenge. If you have entries currently eligible for entry, it will also show up by clicking "Enter this Contest" on the right side of this page.


Entries are accepted by Instructables staff within one business day Monday - Friday. What matters is the submission time, not acceptance time.
