This ring is so simple and yet super popular.  Can be made so fast the tutorial is only 5 mins in length.  I find this ring a great little seller at craft fairs.  To market ( so people know what they are)  I slip the twin wires over a card with a cat face drawn on the card just makes it a little more obvious and looks super cute.
