Here is a picture of a ring I made out of Fimo Beads:

Proper sizing is important to both fit and comfort of the ring. For best results, use a ring mandrel and wrap the wire directly around it; this is a long, cone-shaped object that's either marked with ring sizes or used with a ring-sizing measurement tape. If you don't have these items, tie a string around your ring finger to find the most comfortable length, then use the string to draw a circle on a piece of paper; use this as your guide when making the ring. (Do not build the ring by wrapping the wire directly around your finger, as it's very difficult to get a good shape this way).

Make the basic ring shape by wrapping the wire through the bead hole, around the mandrel and back to the edges of the bead. To make the wire thicker, wrap a second time if the bead hole is large enough to allow this. You may also wrap the second layer of wire in tight coils around the first to make the ring's band thick and strong while giving it an interesting look.

Always take care when you cut the wire to pay attention to where the trimmed edge goes. Adjust the length to keep the ends of the wire on the top of the ring and away from the finger so as to avoid any sharp edges that could dig into the skin. For further precaution, use a nail file to smooth out the sharp ends of the wire.



  1. I tried to make a wire-wrapped ring once, but it was a fail. Maybe I'll give it another try. =0) Thanks for the tutorial!
    PS - Meet & Greet is open, if you'd like to join us & link up your blog.

    1. this is the easier version, I also find it difficult to wrap the wire around the bead. also, try the flatback beads, it is way easier =) hope that helps!

  2. Looks beautiful, Mary Ann! My sister is very good at making jewelry too.
    Following you via bloghop. Hope to see you @ my place :) Have a great day!

    1. thanks yonca! I can't wait to see your sister's jewelry =) I love your blog! In ordinary life we hardly realize that we receive a great deal more than we give, and that it is only with gratitude that life becomes rich.
