thanks so much for all who watched the video and/or commented on my previous post. it means a lot to me. i feel like so many people here still have no clue what went on (and goes on) in the former USSR.
but back to vanity now...
i seem to be obsessed with minaudieres currently. the question is: how in the world can i make these little beauties fit my lifestyle of a busy soccer mom?! shall i carry one around to my daughter's soccer practice or to my son's baseball game? or perhaps to the grocery store? hmm...

|skull ring - DIY (skull charm glued to a blank ring)|
how i did it:
for this project i bought three sun-glass cases from Ross. the one with faux snake skin was only $0.49 due to some minor blemishes inside the case. blank rings are from JoAnns (same as the ones used in my armor ring DIY). also, i used inexpensive thrifted brooches, skull charms from an old Walmart bracelet; red crystals, green and silver beads for eyes. just glued everything together with E-6000 glue.

|glue two (or three) rings to the case, face down; then add brooch and/or charms|
