To create this project, you will need two pairs of flat-nosed pliers. We recommend Euro Tool ergos for this project.
Scoop 13 tiny rubber rings onto the large ring. Close the ring.
With an open medium ring, scoop 6 tiny rings and weave it through any 3 of the tiny rings from step 1. Close the ring.
Onto a medium ring, scoop 3 tiny rings and weave through the 3 rings you just scooped in step 2. Close the ring.
Weave a medium ring through the 6 hanging rings from steps 2 & 3, and also through 3 from step 1. Make sure to skip 2 tiny rubber rings needed for the ring band.
Make the ring band by making a chain of small rings with tiny rubber rings. Close up the band by meeting up with the tiny hanging rings on the other side of the large ring.
