I still remember pretty clearly the first time I took a gum wrapper and twisted it around into a silver ring. I took it over to a little girl, my age, in my Summer camp group to give it to her. Aren't girls almost always the inspiration when a boy is thinking about jewelry Well, that didn't end up going over so well (she already had another 4 year old boy friend) but that doesn't mean making rings is a bad idea. My point is, that rings are a craft that at their simplest even very young kids can make them, yet they can still hold a lot of meaning in the craft. They can however be very complicated and technical crafts because essentially even the priciest and most beautiful rings are just an advanced craft made by a professional. So, whether the ring you make is a simple folded gum wrapper or a band of folded band of gold I hope the person you give it to loves it. Better yet, make one for yourself and show off that awesome bling!
