I'm Michelle, some call me Shelly, and I blog over at Shelly Homemaker
I am so excited to get the opportunity to get to share how to make this ring with you today,so excited in fact, I'm even going to giveaway one to a lucky reader! But don't worry, if you don't win after this tutorial, I promise you'll be able to make it for yourself!
You will need:
22g. Plated wire, 12''-15'' - I used sterling silver plated, but there are many available in many colors
Bead of your choosing, I chose ones that looked like colored pearls
Jewelry Pliers/Wire cutter
Chap stick, thick pen, or some cylinder that is about the size of the finger you want to wear it on
Okay --- Here we GO!
Start with putting your bead in the center of your 12"-15" piece of wire
Wrap the wire around your cylindrical item in opposite directions.
Your wire should have pretty equal amounts on each side
Tightly wrap wire around the bead.
They will go in the same direction, mine went clockwise.
Keep winding around your bead, until you have about 1.5'' left on both sides.
You can wrap high, and low, and overlap.
Slide off the cylinder and wrap tightly around the base of the ring.
I like odd numbers so I do mine with 3 or 5 wraps depending on how large the ring is.
Cut wire so that there is just enough to tuck up in between the bead and the wire
Slide back on to your cylinder because your ring can get slightly misshapen when when wrapping the sides.
Tell me that isn't easy?!?
And oh so pretty!
These make awesome gifts, and will hold up for quite some time!
Thanks for letting me drop in and I hope to see you again over at
