ok I already have the speed bumps on the back of my ring,but I’ve been eating really good and working out consistently in preps for my wedding and I must have dropped a few more pounds. I have a very top heavy solitaire and it’s spinning like crazy. Pinkshoes posted on here a pic of her ring wrapped with fishing twine at the bottom. Shedid it in a way that no knots are showing and it looks amazing. Problem is I cannot figure out how to do it. Help please!
Hey, that looks familar! It’s hard to explain on paper, but if you follow the direction of the arrows, that is the way the string will go. The “back” end of it is at the “pull” and you loop it around back on itself and start wrapping the twine around what should be two pieces of wire, tighting it back toward the “tuck” end. At that end, you should leave a little loop out so that when you finish wrapping toward that end, you can stick the “front” of the wire through that loop, and pull it back through half way underneath the (very tight) loops you just created, that’s how it gets secured. (You’ll probably need a small set of pliers).
I feel like an idiot. I have literally been trying this for days.. I understand everything about it until the very end. I am confused about the end, the little loop, and tucking it back through and securing it. I am not sure what’s wrong w me lol- I am usually very great at following instructions.
Ok, so this might be pretty bad… sorry, I’m in an empty office with out much to play with and nothing to put my camera on by the desk. One thing I forgot to mention is that at the end when you pull it back through, do *not* pull it all the way through or the whole thing will just unravel. Just go about half way so that both ends are secured under the wrap. I’ll attempt a ‘real’ video with a ring and fishing line when I get home next week. Hope this helps for now.
I can’t thank you enough! That was very sweet of you! I just tried it after watching your video and I did it!! It was a bit sloppy but I think I’m getting the hang of it!! How did you ever think of this??!! 😉 Thanks again
