Edit: I was young and nerdy goodbye

This is a steampunk ring that I made from a flashlight bulb, copper tape, an old key chain, and a strap from an old lunchbox. The light does not work, just letting you know. I'm making a steampunk-themed Halloween costume and this is the first thing that I worked on. I might post updates on this Instructable to show you how far i've gone on it :D I personally think that it would look better with a leather glove on.

    I wouldn't say ugly, but perhaps it lacks polish? Very nice idea and a good prototype. Keep working at the idea and make it beautiful and functional!

    a better idea would be to get a cheap 20$ metal ring and sand it down to the copper. then you can mod a little bulb so it lights with a led and attach it to the ring, that way it will light up.

    That is a good idea, I might try that next. Or just hook the bulb up to a mini cell 3volt battery and a switch. Also you could cover it up with electrical tape so it doesn't short out on your hand.

    Haha, now I do. I didn't then but I started reading books about computers and everything about electricity around mid-December. Now I see what you mean and I know how terrible that would be.
