Materials:

  • one 6mm gold colored star spacer
  • three faceted navy glass beads
  • about 24 inches of 24-gauge silver colored wire
  • ring mandrel
  • wire cutters
  • a pair of pliers

Instructions:

  1. Take your wire and center it under the ring mandrel so that you have both ends of the wire about even on either side of the mandrel. When working with a mandrel, you need to work one size up from your desired size. I am making a size 7 ring, so I am working with size 8 on the mandrel. Wrap each end of wire around the mandrel twice.
     
  2. Slide the loops off the mandrel and begin securing them by wrapping the wire ends around the loops. This part doesn’t have to be perfect, nor does it need to be messy. Just do your best for a consistent look. When you are done wrapping, both of the ends should meet again. Also, try on the ring to see if it fits right!
     
  3. Take one of the wire ends and string on two beads. Bend the wire down so both of the beads are sitting on top of the ring and then have the wire end go through the ring. Now take the wire end and wrap it around the base of the beads until you have about 1 inch of wire remaining. Leave this wire end alone for now while you work with the other one.
     
  4. Take the other end of wire and string on the last bead. Poke the wire end through the middle of the other two beads and pull to tighten. Now take your star spacer and string it onto the wire end. Bend the wire so that it’s flush with the star spacer. Cut the wire to about 1 inch.
     
  5. Pinch the end of wire with your pliers and rotate this little loop to make a spiral. Do this until you reach the star spacer and then just position the spiral to where you think it looks good.
     
  6. To finish off the other wire end, poke it through the base of the beads and pull to tighten. Trim the wire end down to 1 inch if needed. Now just pinch the end like you did with the other wire end and create a spiral. Position this spiral to where you think it looks good.
