As you can see I'm using a ring mandrel that I can fix what size I want to use.
Wrap this around. Then from the backside reverse wrap the wire.
Repeat a few times.
Now we will begin to wrap around the bead. Here is a hint, I have read several blogs about making rings similar to this and I have learned something doing this several times. Pinch the wire with the bead so it will sit a little more flush with the mandrel. Or else what happens is the bead will move and not be even and you will see the holes. Pinching helped a LOT! Now time to wrap the bead. You want to wrap the wire the same directions. I started with one side and wrapped to the other side.
Now join the 2 wires together and begin to wrap the bead around with the wire. I found doing 2 at the same time rather that wrapping each individual wire gives a cleaner look.
