Today’s project is a quick one – I’m going to show you how to make these simple wire-wrapped rings in under 10 minutes! It’s a great project for those stray beads you just can’t part with, and it’s really cost effective since each ring takes just one bead and about 12 inches of wire.
What you will need:
- Ring Sizer or Mandrel
- 20-gauge wire (I use silver-plated copper wire)
- wire cutters
- jewelry pliers
- bead(s) you love – 10mm or larger generally work best
I’m actually going to give you the step-by-step by video today. It clocks in under 7 minutes (even with how much I talk, haha) so it truly is a 10-minute-or-less project (my favorite). :)
I also want to thank everyone who’s been tuning in to Crafty Hour every other Friday and let you know, Tara and I are having fits with Google Hangouts for our broadcast, boo! So we won’t be live tomorrow night, and we’re putting it on hold for now until we can find a better way to share what we’re up to with you. I hope today’s tutorial still gives you the face-to-face feel that Crafty Hour delivered, and don’t forget that you can subscribe to my YouTube channel to see more personal tutorials anytime, you know, if you’re a fan of hearing me ramble on about crafts with my Michigan accent, haha.
