Frugal 1 Minute Nautical Button Ring Tutorial

Did you know I am a sailor? This will be my second season sailing. I am not ready for the ocean yet, but I am enjoying being my husbands first mate.  We have an old sailboat that we have been fixing up. Unlike work on the sailboat, this ring was easy to complete. 


Blank Adjustable Ring
Wooden Anchor Buttons (10 for $0.49 @ Wholeport)
Jewelry Glue E6000
Optional: Small Flat Back Pearl Cabochons


Glue your button onto your ring blank. If you choose to, you may cover the button holes with pearl flat back cabochons, using a little glue to attach. Let dry per glue package directions.
