I will continue with my wire jewelry posts since they’re so easy and fun. You can make this wire bead ring in minutes by bending it by hand. Choose a bead in a birth stone color to make it more personal.
What You Need:
- Wire cutters.
- Flat nose pliers to flatten the wire at the end so it isn’t sharp.
- Small bead.
- A dry erase marker the size of your finger (a ring size 7 to 8 is a good general size). A dry erase does 7’s and 8’s.
- About 9 inches of 18 or 20 gauge wire. 20 will bend easier. Also, cheaper 18 gauge wire (wire that is not real silver) will also bend by hand easily.
The wire I used is 18 gauge colored craft wire, nothing special. Sorry about the ugly copper color. It bent much easier than plated silver.
A picture says it all, so follow this illustration below to make yours.
For Your Inspiration:
Once you’re comfortable just start twisting and let it flow! I came up with these by just playing around with the wire.
