Make pretty beaded charm rings

Charm rings - Make pretty charm rings - Jewellery making - Craft -

You will need

● Stretchy nylon cord 1mm thick

● Silver plated jumprings, 6mm

● Selection of silver plated charms (approx. 1.5cm in size)

● Small 4mm stacked pink beads (also in purple and turquoise for additional rings) 


● Scissors

Step 1: Choose the charm you want to sit at the front of your ring such as this silver plated heart then attach it to a small silver plated jumpring and close.

Step 2: Thread the jumpring charm on to the middle of a length of stretchy nylon cord. Approx. 20cm to give yourself room to move.

Step 3: Next, thread your beads on to the nylon on one side of the charm. Make sure the beads that you use have a whole in the middle that is large enough to fit over the nylon.

Step 4: Continue adding your beads on the other side.

Step 5: When you have enough beads on to go around your finger, pull the two ends of the nylon together and tie four knots in the thread. You want each of the knots to get progressively tighter with the first one being quite light and pulling really tightly on it by the end to make sure it is strong and durable.  

Step 6: Cut off any excess nylon and your ring is all ready to wear and share.

You can leave off the charm and just use beads if you prefer.
