I have always enjoyed making rings. As soon as I learned the herringbone weave I've made dozens of these!
Begin with enough wire to overlap whatever size you want your ring to be (make ring 2 sizes larger than intended finish size to accommodate for the weave). I used 18 gauge silver square wire as my base.
Slide your bead on the wire. I used a 9mm glass bead. Cut the wire ends flush against eachother and file.
Solder the edges of the wire. I used a rosin core flux so I just cut off a tiny piece of solder, wedged it between the wire edges and heated up the wire with my iron. This also may be completed using a torch.
Use a small gauge wire (I used 26 gauge sterling silver wire). I used about a foot of this in the next few steps. Wrap around the solder join until you have a coil around the wire about 1/4". Repeat on the other side of the bead.
Take another piece of small gauge wire and begin to wrap it around the coil just like in the previous step.
Bring the long tail of the wire around and make an overhand wrap around the other side of the bead.
Continue this wrap until you have reached the ends of the coils. Wrap the tail of the wire around the base of the ring a couple times to hold it in place.
