Whimsical Bumble Bee Memory Wire Ring
From the blogger: "Make an adorable beaded memory wire ring using a charm made with Swarovski® Crystals from Cousin Corporation of America available exclusively from Michael’s Craft Stores. This ring is fun and easy to make, and it will become your favorite go to ring in no time. It is also a great memory wire beginner’s project. When I first saw this charm, I thought this little guy was a firefly. Either way, he is still super cute. One word of warning: if you are going to be doing a lot of clapping, I suggest taking the ring off first. I had a bruise on my knuckle. OUCH!"

DIY Jewelry Project Instructions
Separate three to four rounds of memory wire and cut in line with the end of the wire.
Using the smallest part of the Memory Wire Finishing Pliers, form a loop at one of the ends of the memory wire.
Bead your wire in any pattern or solid color of your choice.
Bead up until you have about a 1/4 of an inch of wire left and form your end loop the same as you did your beginning loop.
Attach your charm with the clip onto either one or both of the loops.
Note from the designer: Using memory wire cutters are a must for this project unless you want to destroy your regular cutters. Also, I HIGHLY recommend using the memory wire loop pliers on all memory wire projects as it makes the job so much easier.
