I recently received some really fabulous beads with which to experiment and come up with a tutorial for a beaded ring. You can purchase the striped fish beads I'm using for yourself from SB Supply at sbsupply.etsy.com. I ended up making two tutorials since the shop owner was generous enough to ship me six beads. The first one is for a floating ring.

I recently received some really fabulous beads with which to experiment and come up with a tutorial for a beaded ring.

The first one is for a floating ring.

Instructions

  1. Small nc c 004 1271212430

    Here's what you'll need: 1. A fish bead from SB Supply 2. Small blue glass beads (around 2 mm) 3. Looped ring 4. Thin beading wire (around 34 gauge) 5. Jewelry pliers 6. Wire cutters

  2. Small nc c 005 1271211999

    The first step is to attach the wire to the ring. Tie a knot around one of the loops and then repeatedly loop the wire around that metal loop and the one next to it.

  3. Small nc c 011 1271212103

    Slide the fish bead onto the wire. Then take the open end of the wire and attach it to the metal loops on the opposite side of the ring. You'll probably need the pliers to pull the wire through tightly.

  4. Small nc c 014 1271212134

    As you secure the wire, try to center the bead over the loops.

  5. Small nc c 033 1271212176

    Take another piece of wire, about 8 inches long, and string your blue glass beads on it. Make sure one of the ends is knotted (use the pliers) so that the beads don't slide off the end.

  6. Small nc c 036 1271212217

    Take the string of beads and wrap it around the outside of the loops on the ring. Use the extra wire on the end and keep wrapping around tightly to secure the strand. You'll end up with a ring that looks like a fish floating through water. Cute right?
