One ~21" piece of 22g wire (you can also use 20g)
One 6-8mm bead
Plastic or metal ring mandrel
Chain nose pliers
Step 1: Position Bead on Wire
Step 2: Determine the Ring Size
Step 3: Wrap Wire around Mandrel
Quick Tip: I have two ring mandrels: a plastic one and a metal one. I usually end up using both when I make wire wrapped rings - especially if I'm using silver plated Artistic wire; the metal mandrel will scratch the finish on some of the following steps. Typically, I use the metal mandrel for the initial wrapping (this step) and again at the end when I use the mallet to shape the ring (step 11).
