  • How to melt a melted bead ring. Melted Heart Ring - Step 1
    Step 1

    Lay a sheet of tin foil out on to a baking tray and arrange the beads in to a heart formation. You have to use really cheap plastic beads for this otherwise they wont melt and make sure to place them tightly together. Place the tray with the beads in the oven and bake at the highest heat.

It took me a while to find ring bases too. I managed to get some as part of a craft kit once, but then I was lucky enough to find a bead shop that sells them. Look online if you're really stuck.
