Knuckle rings are totally my jam right now, so when I spotted this set of pearl rings while cruising Pinterest last weekend, I just knew I had to whip up a few for myself as well... why should Nasty Gals have all the fun, right? (winky face). This one is super quick and easy, so read on for instructions!
SUPPLIES: 0.8mm WIRE | RING MANDREL | PLIERS OR WIRE CUTTERS | 3-6000 GLUE | PEARL BEADS
Start by wrapping your wire around the mandrel to your desired ring size, smoothing out the wire as you do so. Remember to factor in how much space you want between pearls as you do this.
Using a pair of pliers or wire cutters, gently remove the excess wire, reshaping the ring when you're done. Dip the ends of the wire into some strong glue, then add a pearl bead to each wire end.
Allow your ring to dry for a couple hours for best results, then wear your handiwork with pride... You earned it.
I couldn't believe how easy this project was, especially with the help of a mandrel, which is probably the best DIY investment I've ever made. Shaping wire into rings used to take me forever before this bad boy, so if you're interested in making jewelry or getting more into DIY, I would definitely recommend picking one of these up — I got mine at Michaels, but there's heaps online if you're interested! xx
