Beaded Memory Wire Ring

Hey Everyone,

I shared this super easy memory wire ring a few weeks ago at My Favorite Finds.
 Did you know I was a monthly contributor at My Favorite Finds? Well I am - you should check out Carrie's blog, its so awesome...and I'm there!!!

Okay so onto the ring...
What you will need:
Ring memory wire , beads of your choice, a blingy button and long nosed pliers. ( I also used jewelry pliers but if you don't have those, its no biggie)

What to do:
Cut a length of memory wire roughly the the number of times you want it to wrap around your finger.
Thread the button on first and position it in the middle of your ring.
Thread beads on one side until you're satisfied with how it looks, then loop the end to finish it off. 
Continue on the other side of the button, cut off excess wire,  loop and end off. 
I didn't worry how the ends looked, as long as they dont stab your finger when the ring is on.

So, so easy...

I have to admit that it's a little too blingy for me and when I do get around to making myself one, I'll use a more subtle button.

However it does look really cute on my friend's hand, don't you think?

 I hope you have been inspired to try this super easy project today, it doesn't take up a lot of time and the end result is really rewarding especially if you're giving it as a gift.

 Take care everyone
