  • To make a wire loop, you need a round nose pliers.
  • Before you totally bend the wire loop, insert one golden micro bead just for design purpose.
  • Close the loop carefully.
  • Add the stone bead (optional). Then at the bottom of stone bead, make an end loop.
  • Make five ornament and attach them with a bead wire to create a flower form.
  • At the base, attach at least three different sizes of colorful buttons.
  • Lock the wire between the button and ornament to hide the mess.
  • Make sure you use the longer nose pliers to avoid breaking some loops and micro beads.
  • Measure at least 2" of bead wire. Make a smaller loop to hold the micro-beads on top.
  • After putting micro-beads, leave at least 2 cm size to attach it at the bottom of the ornament.
  • Locked it carefully with pliers.
  • You have two option for the ring.
  1. Buy any finished circular ring in the market for a DIY ring project, or
  2. Make your own using bigger wire gauge for the ring.

Note:You try to use two pliers at the same time to lock small loops that you cannot hold with your fingers alone.

      @Kathryn, I am pleased. Thank you for reading and commenting.

      By the way, I have linked already your hub 'Memorable Gifts for Women in your Life' to my hub 'A Special Card For Your Mom on Mothers Day'. Unfortunately, it was marked having pixelated or watermarked pictures. It was not featured for the meantime but I was hoping it will go back being featured soon.
