Making A Beaded Ring
Supplies Needed 
  • 1 Glass Bead, one-faceted & center-drilled (25 mm x 12.5 mm x 7.5 mm)
  • 2 round Glass Crystal Beads (5mm)
  • 16 Gauge Wire
  • Dowel
  • Wire Cutters
  • Needle-nose Pliers
  • Tape Measure 
  • With the help of wire cutters, cut the wire into a length of 13-inch.
  • Insert a round bead into the wire, followed by the large bead and then the second round bead.
  • Position the beads in such a way that they are in the center of the wire. Next, use the dowel to shape the beaded ring.
  • Start by placing the clustered beads on one side of the dowel. Now, wrap the wires carefully around the dowel, to the other side.
  • Keep on holding the clustered beads together, in the same position.
  • Now, hold on to the beads and wrap one end of the wire around the dowel, two times. Finish the procedure when the wire reaches the starting point of the dowel.
  • Repeat the wrapping procedure with the other end of wire as well, ensuring four wraps of wire around the dowel.
  • It is now the time to remove the wrapped wire from the dowel.
  • Being as gentle and careful as possible, try the wrapped wire on your finger, to see whether the ring fits or not.
  • In case the ring does not fit, place it back on the dowel and make the necessary adjustments.
  • You will now be left with two tails of wire, which you will have to bend away from the ring at 90-degree angles.
  • Each of the two wire tails should extend away from the ring, from just below the clustered beads on each side.
  • Bending back one of the wire tails back in, towards the ring, you need to thread it completely through the ring, to the opposite side of the beads.
  • Tightly wrap the wire tail around the wires of the ring, a number of times. Do make sure that wrap point is just under the beads at the side of the ring.
  • Repeat the above two steps with the other side of the ring as well. Finally, trim the excess wire as close to the ring as possible.
