Rings & Things is one of the popular online stores for finding jewelry making materials. Honestly, it’s one of those online stores that I often visit to look for unique designs for beads. Their DIY jewelry making projects are also interesting. Not the usual beading and wirework jewelries but they have that cool and funky style that makes me want to try each project, especially their leather inspired jewelries.
Leather isn’t that expensive and you can easily, and quickly create handmade jewelries with it. To some leather may not be that interesting but take a look at this.

An interesting fact about Rings & Things…A team of designers now works at Rings & Things, writing tutorials and teaching new techniques, both online and at classes in their Showroom. For fun, they designed a ceramic bead that looks just like Russ, founder of Rings & Things — the “Russ Troll Bead”.https://shop.rings-things.com/cart/search/search.asp?keywords=russ+troll+bead
