California Gold Rush Memory Wire Ring

PROJECT R2044
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate
This design features golden etched beads for a nice texture in this delicate memory wire ring.
Instructions
This ring memory wire has a diameter at 3/4". It will bend open like a spring but will be a sung fit. Feel free to adjust by adding more loops and beads to this design.
  1. Please watch our video: How to Use Memory Wire Glue In Ends. From what you learned in the video, string on one 4mm bead, add glue and then add one end cap. Press them together to secure the end. Allow to dry.
  2. Then to the other end string on 12 more beads
  3. Finally trim the end of the memory wire with the memory wire cutters so you have about 1/4 inch. Carefully add a dab of glue to the end, add one more bead and add a memory wire end. You may need to hold it in place for a few minutes for the bond to take. But be sure to let dry for 24 hours for maximum bond.
