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?
