Metal Hexagons Recipe 1: Stackable Geometric Rings
by Nancy Soriano Follow

Hexagon tubing is a staple at the hardware store, but the shape is a classic motif with ancient roots. Hexa means "six" in Greek; the number six has long been seen as mystical (some even consider it to be the perfect number), and the six-sided hexagon is prevalent in geometry and nature, revered for it's efficiency. For these projects I worked with cut hexagon tubing, often referred to as hexagon brass tube outlines, which can be found on Etsy or at a jewelry supply store.

  • Paint one side of a hexagon brass tube outline with nail polish until it is opaque. You can also alternate blank and painted sides, paint multiple colors on one outline, or paint dots for a unique look. Try stacking multiple rings, too.
