Wire Ring With a Beaded Pearl
Using 18 gauge wire for jewelry is so easy, the metal is soft enough to manipulate.
You will need wire cutters and pliers.
This time, I took about 10 inches of metal and beaded one pearl on it.
Using something a little larger then the size of my finger (I used a thick marker) I wrapped the metal around it to create the part that goes on your finger.
Then I took the ends and started twirling them around each other like a two strand braid.
Then I wrapped that around the pearl to create a rose like look.
The ends I wrapped around the ring part and tucked them under so they don't poke me. You will need pliers to make sure it is tight, and then wire cutters for the loose ends.
This can be done with any bead but I liked the look of the single pearl.
Another beautiful Berta piece original. I also got myself this turquoise ring from my favorite silver store in Naples, FL. Every time I am in the area I stop there.
