Ooo! I just got my latest issue of BUST magazine and there are quite a lot of nifty DYI crafts. The first one, the bling ring,  I knew I had all of the stuff around the house so I sat down and attempted it this morning. I'm rather pleased with the results!





YEA for crafty BUSTers!

gee...for some odd coincidence, I made the same kind of wrapped ring but thought I came up with the original idea!!!  Do they teach you to wrap around another piece of wire?  Wonder if we are doing the same thing, but the results do look similar.

Oh! I like the ones you made too ladies!  You can pick up the mag, which I highly recommend, but here's the short version:

Supplies:
needlenose pliers
24-26 gauge silver wire
chunky and funky bling beads
heap pins (optional - BUST instructs to make your own by balling the end, but I had some laying around)

1) Wrap a length of wire twice around the finger you're making the ring for. Remember to make it a little loose as you'll be wrapping wire around it. I kind of notched the two pieces together to stay (that's the bump at the bottom of my ring).

2) Next figure out where the top of the ring will be. Leave about 1/8" space evenly at the top ring face. Cut off a fairly long length of wire. (I'd say a good 6 inches, or so depending on your ring size). and start at one of the top ends and wrap it very tightly around the ring. I messed up on this a little bit. If you runn out of wire, just cut another piece and keep going until your stopping point, 1/8" away from where you started. You can use your needle nose pliers to gently push your coils together as you go.

3) At the top of the ring, using your needle nose pliers, pry apart the two unwrapped bits to form a circle, or in my case, an diamond shape.

4) Take your head pins, string on a bead, and loop it around one of the wires you just opened. Now wrap it around itself and trim it. Repeat until your ring is nice, chunky and gaudy.

5) Make yourself a Cosmo to match. Sip and enjoy the envy of your bling-less peers!

It's on the beadstudio.com site, maybe that clears up the confusion a bit!
