I found instructions to make similar rings in issue 24 of The Bead Book.
I’ll share with you how I made mine.
- Memory Wire ring size from The Bead Shop
- ± 70 3mm seed beads in charcoal
- 25mm Silver Rose button
- round nose pliers, needle nose pliers and side cutter
- Start by making a small loop at one end of wire. (I was caught off guard at how hard this wire is – be careful with slipping your pliers)
- Thread half your beads onto the wire; about 1 and a half loops if you want it symmetrical and not too tight.
- Next thread on your button (I love the rose buttons I got from our haberdashery!)
- Thread on the rest of your beads. If using the memory wire rings that I used, then you will have about a whole loop of wire left over: Trim leaving enough wire to make a closing loop.
I have kind of thick fingers when compared to the rest of the ring wearing population. (Think my wedding ring measured S or T) So after making one I pulled the loops apart and stretched the loops a bit so that the ring fits comfortably. This means that one size will basically fit all!
