First of all, you might think the title is a bit weird. I'm going to explain it in the last step :)
Second of all, the person who designed this ring, is this amazing Etsy shop owner called theWRAPstar:
The ring
The shop
I love all the beautiful wire and bead stuff you can find in that shop, but when I saw this ring I had to try to make it. The ring with the light blue beads was my first try, and I'm really happy with how it turned out. Of course, when two people make the same ring, they end up with two different rings. I think the original ring has a bit more of a round, higher look, where mine is shaped a bit more oval, but I like that. It just makes everything handmade unique. The instructable will show you the steps I took to make this ring. I hope you like it!

Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials
To make this ring, you will need the following:

- wire
- flat nose pliers
- cutting pliers
- 2 coloured beads
- 2 metal beads
- round object to wrap your ring around

Step 2: Cut a piece of wire

Picture of Cut a piece of wire
Take your wire and use the cutting pliers to cut off two pieces of wire with a length of about 20 centimeter. I used most of it, just a few centimeter had to be cut off in the end.

Step 3: Wrap!

Make sure the two pieces of wire are straight next to each other. When they come across each other on the other side, wrap one side around the other. When you've done that, wrap the other side also.  Continue wrapping them for about  half a circle (just a bit more) to create a circle.

This is gorgeous! And the instructions are very detailed. I've never made wire jewelry before, but I just might have to try now...
One question, what type of metal is your wire made of?
emilyvanleemput (author)  Shadri10 months ago
Thank you so much! I'm using silver plated copper wire I think.

You inspired me! In typical DIY fashion, I didn't have quite the same supplies on hand, so I modified the design. I had 16 gauge wire and the beads that would fit it were bigger, which inspired me to change the placement as I constructed it.

I am wanting to try to make this. I have never made jewelry and this looks like something I would like to try. Could you please tell me the type of beads and the sizes you use. As well as to the size of wire. Thanks Trena
emilyvanleemput (author)  Trena76511 months ago
The coloured beads are glass beads of about 4 mm. The metal beads are smaller, I'd say somewhere between 2 and 3 mm. The wire is 0.8 mm.

Those are really pretty. I love the idea of astronomy themed jewellry. Lizzyastro has a broach in the shape of orion, with the key stars picked out in glass of the correct colours...
