Step 1

Double Pearl Midi Ring:

Cut approx 30cm of wire. Shape the ring around a cylindrical object such as a lipstick or mascara, or use a ring mandrel. Wrap around twice and bring both ends to the front. Bend each end where you'd like the pearl to sit then thread on the pearls. Wind the wire around the pearls and cut off any excess.

Step 2

Heart Midi Ring:

Cut approx 30cm of wire. Starting at one end, glue on a tiny pearl. Hook to create one half of the heart then bend the wire back up. Hook to create the other half, then take the wire straight down. Keeping the heart in the centre, shape the ring around a cylindrical object such as a lipstick or mascara, or use a ring mandrel. Wrap around twice then twist the end around the ring base to secure. Cut off any excess wire.

Step 3

Black Wave Midi Ring:

Cut approx. 15cm of wire. Use flat nose pliers to create a wavy shape towards the centre of the piece of wire. Shape around a cylindrical object such as a lipstick, mascara or ring mandrel. Hook both ends around each other, then fold the ends back on each other to finish off. Cut off any excess wire.

Step 4

Copper Swirl Midi Ring:

Cut approx. 15cm of wire. Use round nose pliers to create a small loop at one end then continue to swirl using flat nose pliers. Shape the ring around a cylindrical object such as a mascara, lipstick or a ring mandrel. Cut the other end approx. 1.5cm from the centre, and spiral in the other direction. Twist the spirals over each other to finish.
