'Nest Egg' Rings
Designed by: Stephanie Gibbs
Cut approximately 3ms of 0.9mm wire. Start by finding the middle of the 0.9mm wire and wrap around the ring mandrel 3x at the size of ring desired. Cross the wires over in the middle where they meet.
Add 2 rounds or roundelles to the top wire and 1 to the bottom wire. Take the top wire and pull the wire down to the left gently holding the beads roughly in place. (The stones will curl downwards). Take the left wire and pull it round to the right. Repeat the curling round the beads 3 times until they both meet at the top right.
Next you need to cut the top wire so you have 1cm remaining, taking your round nose pliers make a small curl and pull it tward and slightly under the first gemstone.
Take the remaining wire and wrap round the left hand side of the ring shank 3 times pulling tightly. Then take the same wire round the front of the design between the 2nd gemstone and the other wires untill you reach the ring shank on the right hand side. This wire is then wrapped 2 or 3 times round the ring shank and finished by trimming the wire so there is anough wire to end in a tiny curl.
