It isnt hooked up yet but i thought i would show off what i have done so far today. It is a 32 UV inward and outward led ring. It is not hooked up yet becuase i dont have the time to do that today, i have to go to work soon. So all i did was make the ring, measure out where each led going, put them in the ring, and soldered them in parallel. I split it up it up in two halfs so the inward is 16 leds and the outward is 16 leds and both halfs will be hooked up to a 5v source with a 2.7ohm resistor for each half. When its all hooked up i think it should look very nice biggrin.gif

With everything soldered but the led legs not cut.

How it looks with the legs cut and finished. Now i just gotta hook up the +/- wires and give it some power. But that is for another day. How does it look guys?

Looks good, must have taken some time to do that. Just make sure there is no contact between the positive and negative, I know this is noob advice tongue.gif anyway, what color are you planning to put in there? smile.gif

What are you going to use? Like a 1ohm resistor?

i dont think its going to be super bright. i think it will give a nice glow, but they are uv leds. they are much more dimm then other color leds. you did a great job with it. what did you actually solder them to?

Nice job man. Never would have tought about using 32 leds for a jewel ring a little overboard in my book but you sure did take the idea and run with it beerchug.gif

Thanks for the comments guys. Yeah, it took about 2 hours from start to finish. What i used as the "backbone" for the ring is a little small circular ring from a ziplock container. However using a pringles lid is a very good idea also. Yeah, I wanted a inward and outward led ring, and i know that 8 leds is the most common, but that just wasnt cutting it for me, so i decided to double it and put 16 inward and 16 outward. I think it turned out just nice. I'll post pics as soon as i get it installed, but i'm afraid that wont be for another day or two, i start school tomorrow sad.gif

EDIT: The resistor i calculated that i needed was a 2.7ohm 1watt resistor for each half of the ring. And sickmods.net had some 2.7ohm 2watt resistors so i got two of em for this ring biggrin.gif (Thanks for the fast shipping by the way! It was like next day!)

I can't wait to see it lit up!
It'll be sooooo smooth, unlike the choppy 8 led ones
