1. Cut a piece of 18ga round dead soft wire 1 ft (30cm) long.

2. Place a 11x6mm pillow bead in the middle of the wire. Bend the wire down as shown.

3. Place the wire with a bead around the ring mandrel at size larger than needed. Wrap the wire around the ring. There is one wire on either side of a bead.

4. Wrap each wire twice around the bead, one side at a time and alternate sides. Your wires will end up in opposite directions.

5. Use the wire end to wrap around the shank. Make 2-3 wraps. Cut the wire. Tuck the wire ends with chain nose pliers so they are not poking.

6. Repeat step 5 with the other wire end.

Your ring is done!
