  • How to make a wire wrapped ring. Swirl Wrapped Bead Ring - Step 1
    Step 1

    Cut 60 cm of crafting wire. It's always better to cut a longer piece as you wont be able to add extra wire later if needed.

    Thread the bead into the wire and fix its position right in the center of the wire.

    Step 2

    After threading the bead hold the wire around the mandrel by keeping the bead in the center,

    Wrap the wire from one size larger than the actual ring size. My ring size is 6 cm so I started from 7 cm,

    Carefully wrap the wire around the mandrel 2 times,

    And then wrap the wire around the bead from both sides in a counter clockwise motion as shown in this picture.

    Hold any one end of the wires, near the bead,

    Use the looping plier to make a small loop on the wire and circle the wire around that loop 2-3 times to make a swirly pattern.

    Step 4

    Make another loop near the first swirl (keep 2 cm gap between the first swirl and the second loop),
    Circle the wire around that loop to make the second swirl,

    Make 2 more or enough swirls to cover half way around the bead.

    Similarly make more swirls with the other end of the wire to cover the other half around the bead.

    After adjusting the swirls around the bead carefully coil the remaining wires around both sides of the ring,
    Coil the wire around the ring band 3-4 times and trim wire if needed.

    Done!
