Make It Monday DIY: Whimsical Memory Wire Ring Featuring Charms Made With Swarovski® Crystals

On Saturday, I posted a tutorial of a super cute ear cuff with a peacock feather charm.  Today, I am showing you how to make a adorable beaded memory wire ring using more of charms made with Swarovski® Crystals from Cousin Corporation of America available exclusively from Michael's Craft Stores.  There are links below for my fellow ambassadors' projects using these lovely little charms as well.

This ring is fun and easy to make, and it will become your favorite go to ring in no time.

Ring Sized Memory Wire
11/0 Seed Beads (Yeah....tiny ones)
1 Sunshine Bumble Bee Charm (or charm of choice)

Memory Wire Cutters
Memory Wire Finishing Pliers (I HIGHLY recommend these over round nose for this project)

Skill Level: Beginner

Craft Time: About 45 minutes

Separate three to four rounds of memory wire and cut in line with the end of the wire.  Using the smallest part of the Memory Wire Finishing Pliers, form a loop at one of the ends of the memory wire.
Bead your wire in any pattern or solid color of your choice.  I used TOHO Galvanized Silver,  Starlight Galvanized Gold and Hematite for my Bee ring. Bead up until you have about a 1/4 of an inch of wire left and form your end loop the same as you did your beginning loop.

Attach your charm with the clip onto either one or both of the loops.  If you want a more adjustable ring, clip the charm on only one of the loops.

Enjoy your new fun ring!
