Step 2

Daisy Ring -

Cut about 30" of wire.
Thread 25 white beads onto the wire. Pass the wire back through the first bead you strung.
Continue with this pattern until you have 10 petals. 
Secure any extra wire and trim the ends.

Create a bundle of yellow beads by wrapping the wire and beads in and out.
Secure the centre of the daisy to the petals.

Glue the daisy to the ring base.
You may wish to wrap some wire in and out of the beads and around the ring base to secure it after gluing. 

Step 3

Honey Bee Ring -

Thread 3 black beads to the centre of the wire.
Bend the two sides of wire towards you.
Thread 4 black beads onto the right wire and thread the left wire in the opposite direction through these beads. 
You should have two adjacent rows of 3 and 4 beads.
Do the same with 4 more beads, this is the head of your honey bee.

Thread 1 white bead onto one of the wires. Thread on 10 more white beads and loop them around, threading the back wire through the first bead. 
Do the same for the other side to create the wings. 

Thread 5 yellow beads onto the right wire. 
Thread the left wire through these yellow beads in the opposite direction.
Repeat with 5 black beads, 5 yellow beads, 4 black, 3 yellow and 2 black.
Weave the spare ends of wire back into the bee to secure them.
Trim them if necessary.

Glue the bee to the ring base.
You may wish to wrap some wire in and out of the beads and around the ring base to secure it after gluing.

Lady Bird Ring - 

Thread 3 black beads to the centre of the wire.
Bend the two sides of wire towards you.
Thread 2 red, 1 black an two more red beads onto the right wire and thread the left wire in the opposite direction through these beads. 
Thread 1 black bead, 3 red and 1 more black bead onto the right wire and thread the left wire in the opposite direction through these beads. 
Thread 2 red, 1 black an two more red beads onto the right wire and thread the left wire in the opposite direction through these beads. 
Make one more bead line with 4 beads; 1 black, 2 red and one black.

Weave the spare ends of wire back into the bee to secure them.
Trim them if necessary.

Use your black wire to wrap in and out (underneath) the head of the lady bird, and finish by bending them outwards like antenni.

Glue the lady bird to the ring base.
You may wish to wrap some wire in and out of the beads and around the ring base to secure it after gluing.
