Egyptian Style Wire Rings

Hello everyone!
Sorry, it's been a while! I aimed to post more often this holiday and that seems to have been forgotten! But to make up for the lack of posts I have a few wire ring ideas!! 
So before we begin you will need some supplies;
~Thick wire preferably about 0.6-0.8mm,
~Round nose pliers,
~Some pretty coloured beads!

To start with all of these rings cut about 15cm of wire.

1. For the first wire ring (pictured on ring finger), take your wire and thread one bead into the centre. Wrap one end of the wire around half of the bead and repeat with the other side. (Both ends should have swapped places) Then wrap the wire around a pen three times, cut to the appropriate length and loop the edges in opposite directions.

2. For the second ring (pictures on the middle finger) take your wire and continuously loop around the smaller end of the pliers, changing the direction that you do it in everytime. Once you have completed this to the appropriate length, bend the wire around the edge of the first loop that you created.

3. For the third and final ring (pictured on the first finger) thread a bead onto the wire and wrap around a pen. Then adjust to your finger size, cut to appropriate size and bend both ends of the wire into interlocking loops.

These rings look incredible and hopefully give you some ideas! So sorry that I haven't had time to post recently will be working on new ideas for the time being!

Keep the Creative Juices Flowing! Enjoy!!x
