How to make crystal jewelry

Create the base 

Wrap your wire around a wooden cylinder that matches your desired ring size. Simply wrap the wire around the wood until you get the size you want. Once you’ve wrapped the wire a few times, pull it off and wrap the short edge of the wire around the circle to secure the loops together (pictured above). Leave the long edge free for adding the crystals.

Add the beads 

Slip the bead onto the long edge of the wire until it reaches the base of the ring. Then, wrap the wire under and around to keep the crystals securely in place. Try and create a sort of nest for the crystal to rest in. Add a second crystal and repeat. Continue doing this until you have created the look you like. For an in-depth look at this, check out the video at 3:26. Once you’re done, use pliers to push the wire down and secure it in place, keeping the crystals from moving.
