To Ring or Not to Ring

I have a friend who is interested in making a ring.(not a paper bead ring, just a ring in general)  Since I am a paper bead “jeweler” I’ve never pursued rings. But it made me wonder about paper-beading it.   After reading several web sites, I very quickly put this together last night.

The wire was reused from another project and the bead was one I made early in my paper bead-making.  Both items seemed appropiate for an experiment.

I wore it today.  The main reason I didn’t want to make rings with paper beads is people wash their hands with their jewelry on.  After all, what’s the point of having jewelry if you can’t enjoy it?  My plan was to be careful, but at the mall one of the first things I did was wash my hands in the ladies room.  Right as my hand went under the water I saw the ring.  Too late.

If the ring decides to mutiny on me, I’ll add a picture later.  Right now it seems okay.

Paper Bead Jewelers, do you make beads and use them in rings?
