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

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
<p>Really clever to make it reminiscent of a galaxy! Must make it for someone I know who loves astronomy. Will share on my blog so others can come here to try it!</p>
<p>I'm glad you like it! </p>
This is beautiful! Thank you!
<p>Thank you!</p>
<p>I missed a step, the last sentence of step 3 where it said to wrap it again :) But I think it still turned out pretty. Thanks!</p>
<p>It looks great!</p>
<p></p><p><strong>I really like it </strong></p>
<p>Thank you!! </p>
<p>I love this! :) You make it looks so doable! I may just have to give some wire rings a go! :)</p>
<p>Thank you!! I'll warn you in advantage - it's quite addicting ; ) </p>
I agree with mole1, these would great as ear cuffs! Wow, you're amazing! I actually like your ring better! Thank you for the instructable!
<p>Thank you so much!</p>
Love the rings! Any chance of your making a similar ible for ear cuffs?
Thanks! I actually haven't made ears cuffs before, maybe I'll give it a try!
This is gorgeous! And the instructions are very detailed. I've never made wire jewelry before, but I just might have to try now...<br/>One question, what type of metal is your wire made of?
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.
It's great!
Wow!! That is an *awesome* ring. Thanks for sharing this tutorial. :)
Thank you!
Nice work however I like the doily under your rings.
Thanks, I like it too :)
This is an awesome ring and you made the instructions easy to follow with the great photos... <br>What gauge of wire did you use? <br>Thanx
thank you. I used 0.8 mm wire
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
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.
I SO want to make these. I haven't been making a lot of jewelry lately, but I think now is the time to make something... this!
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...
Thank you!
Beautiful! Guess I'll have to start using wire to make jewelry again! You inspired me.
Thank you!
I love it! great work Emily, as always :)
Thank you!
Lovely job, as usual!
Thank you :D
Super Cute !! Thank you for sharing.
Thank you!
