Introduction: Simple Wire-Wrapped Ring

Here is how to make this wire-wrapped ring. It is perfect for everything and can be made in any color.

To make it, you will need:

-Some wire (I'm using 24-gauge wire, but you can use other gauges too)

-A bead (Round, smaller beads work best)

Tools:

-Pliers

-Wire cutters

-A ring mandrel (or any other circular object the size of your finger)

Step 1: Cut Your Wire

Take your wire and wire cutters and cut a length about 2 feet. This does not need to be precise, you just need enough to fully wrap the ring.

Step 2: Center Your Bead

Take your bead and slide it onto the center of the wire.

Step 3: Start the Ring

Take your wire with the bead and your mandrel. Place the bead at a size a tiny bit larger than you want the ring, as wrapping will take some space. Wrap the tails of the wire around the mandrel a few times, ending at the side of the circle opposite the bead. Slide off the ring.

Step 4: Wrapping the Ring

Take one of the tails of wire and start wrapping up the side of the ring. Stop when you reach the bead. Repeat for the other side. Use your pliers to keep the wrapping small and even.

Step 5: Wrapping the Bead

Take the remaining wire and wrap it around the bead. Snip off extra ends and tuck into the bottom.

Step 6: You're Done!

Put it on your finger. Very pretty!
