    If you have a ring mandrel, then use this to
    make the wire ring. I used the tube of a lip salve.
    Place the beaded part onto your former, wrap each side of the wire around the former so the
    wire sits on either side of the beads. Wrap each side of wire tightly around the bottom of the beads
    a couple of times. Finish with a wire tail on each side of the ring.
