How to Make a Bead Ring

1. Cut a strip of elastic. Measure the length that will fit around the finger about twice, then cut. Slide a small bead into the center of this cut piece. 2. Slip two larger beads at either side of the small bead. 3. Slip a small bead on one tail. Then slip the other tail through, too. 4. Continue this pattern until you have enough beads to fit around the finger. Do not add a small bead to the last set. 5. Finish the ring by slipping the loose tails through the first small bead you placed o

Make a Ring from a Silver Coin

1. Obtain a silver coin. If you are using a U.S. coin, you need to use one from 1964 or earlier. (More recent coins are not made of silver and will not look as good as a silver coin but seem to be easier to shape. However, the content of copper and other metals will discolor your finger because it will start oxidizing on your finger.) You can get one from any coin dealer for $3. A quarter makes a woman's size ring (or a very thin ring for a man with below-average finger size) and a half-dollar

Studded Double Finger Ring

Wire Heart Finger Ring

1. You'll need wire (I used 20 gauge), round nose and cutting pliers and a glue stick or lip balm in order to shape the ring to fit your finger. You can always use your finger too!

Shape the wire on the glue stick or lip balm. 4. Now you have a 'U' shape. 5. Bend the left side with your round nose plier

Ball Cluster Ring

What you'll need:beadsloop ring basehead pins Put one bead on each headpin and start a wrapped loop. Next, finish the wrapped loops and cut off the extra. Then open a 4mm jump ring and put 7 beads on it and attach it to the ring base. Using the jump ring allows you to get more beads onto the ring for a fuller look. I wound up using 8 of the 10 loops on the ring base (skipping the two loops in the center) because my ring was so full that I didn’t have room for any more.
