Black Lip Pearl Flower Bead Ring

Black Lip Pearl Flower Bead Ring

We are so in love with our natural black lip pearl flower beads that we couldn't resist creating an eye catching ring with them. These beads have beautiful iridescent peacock colours running through them!

The ring band included in the shopping list is a size L or you could create your own ring band by following our tutorial here.

The shopping list contains more wire and metal beads than needed for the project, so you can keep them for creating more jewellery designs.

Step By Step Instructions

1. Cut a length of wire approx 20cm and thread the loose end through a metal bead.

2. Fold the wire in half, with the metal bead at the top then thread both loose ends of wire through the flower bead. The metal bead should now be sitting in the middle of the flower bead.

3. Position the flower bead on top of the ring band and grab one loose end of wire and begin wrapping the wire around one side of the ring band tightly to secure.

4. Wire wrap the other side of the ring band with the other loose end of wire. You can wrap with as much wire as you like and trim if needed.

5. To finish the wire wrap you will need to loosely wrap the last few loops around the ring and thread the loose end of your wire back through the loops and pull tight with a pair of flat nose pliers. Trim any loose ends with side cutters and use snipe nose pliers to tuck them in so they don't catch.

Your ring is now finished!
