La Sirena Ring

PROJECT R8002
Designer: Alexandra Smith
Skill Level: Intermediate
This ocean-inspired ring looks like something a mermaid would wear! The frame is created with 24 gauge wire using the Ring Weaver Tool by Beadalon. Stitched along the edges of the ring are 4mm Indicolite blue Swarovski crystal bicones and white crystal pearls.
Instructions
This ring is made using the designated size 6 configuration on the Ring Weaver Tool. The size is approximate and will be influenced by the size of your weaving material. To modify the size of your ring, adjust the length of wire and peg placement on your tool accordingly.
  1. Please watch the video: How to Use the Ring Weaver Tool by Beadalon. Follow along with the video to assemble your Ring Weaver Tool, placing your pegs in the holes designated for a size 6 ring.
  2. Use flush cutters to cut 40 inches of 24 gauge gold craft wire and load it onto the Ring Weaver Tool as shown in the video. Follow along with the video to create a 5 layer ring.
  3. Please watch the video: How to Add beads to a Wire Woven Ring. Using what you have learned in the video, use flush cutters to cut 10 inches of 26 gauge gold craft wire. Attach the wire onto the rim of your ring frame as shown in the video.
  4. String on one blue bicone bead, weave once through the frame, string on one white crystal pearl, and weave back through the frame. Follow along with the video to continue weaving beads onto the sides of your ring until you have 8 bicones on one side of the ring and 8 pearls along the other side (see photo for reference).
  5. Once all of your beads are attached, finish off your wire by coiling along the rim of your ring frame as shown in the video. Clip and tuck your wire. Enjoy your ring!
