DIY Simple Wire Rings
Gather up your extra beads and some jewelry wire to DIY these simple rings.
Whenever I make necklaces I always seem to have extra beads. As hard as I try to use all of my beads in a project, it doesn't always happen. I hold on to my extra beads hoping I will be able to incorporate them into another project down the road. I have found it rather difficult to come up with a project idea using different colors and styles of beads. Like a true crafter, it is very hard for me to toss out extra crafting supplies I have, for fear I may need it down the road (I am not a hoarder, I swear!).
I started thinking really hard about what I could do with all of my random beads. Then, it hit me. Why not make them into rings?!? Simple rings seem to be all the rage lately. Sometimes a subtle piece of jewelry can really make a statement. The best part about these simple wire rings is they require very few supplies to make. All you need is jewelry wire, a bead, a couple of tools, and super glue.
Since they are simple to make, you could whip up a bunch of rings in no time. You could make them as a gift for a friend, your mother, your sister, or as a gift to your bridesmaids (it is wedding season after all!). What are you waiting for? Grab your random beads and your jewelry wire and get making!
Are you are jewelry maker? If so, What type of jewelry do you make?
- Jewelry Wire
- Wire Cutters
- Round Nose Pliers
- Your Favorite Bead
- Super Glue
- Marker (or Ring Mandrel if you have one)
Let's get crafty!
Cut your wire 3 inches long. I cut 3. One for each of my beads.
Wrap your wire around your marker (or ring mandrel).
Flatten the end of one of your wires so it will fit inside of your bead. Put super glue on the end and put it inside of your bead. Then, try your ring on. You will want to trim your wire down enough so you still have wire to place inside of your bead. After you trim your wire, put glue on the end and place inside of your bead. Let your glue dry and you are finished!
Just think of all the fun you could have with these rings mixing and matching them to all of your outfits!
