beaded memory wire rings

I whipped these up last night by threading size 15 seed beads (colour: heather mix) onto memory wire rings. I superglued the first and last bead onto the wire and that’s it! Memory wire is great – the resulting rings are adjustable to any size finger.

    Thank your for your beaded ring tip – i stopped beading a while ago because i was mostly using stretchy cords and wanted to make something with wire but kind of got caught in knitting in the meantime – hope to return to beading some day soon (just got a book on using wire) – i tried making some wire bead rings for my stepmom (she had some from africa which she really liked) – first ones i made were made with too thin wire so came apart too easily – tried thicker wire which worked better but I really like your memory wire rings! i’ll try that next time —

    Thank you for the tip on gluing the end beads in place. I had made one ring and turned the ends with my round pliers. It doesn’t make a nice finish for a ring. I’m going to try using the super glue.

    Awesome rings! I have a question about the memory wire you used. The only memory wire ring size I can find where I live is too big for a ring, its more sized for wine glass charms or maybe a thumb ring…maybe. So what size/kind memory wire did you use and where did you buy it, if you don’t mind me asking. 🙂 amberella007@yahoo.com

    Thx-Amberella!

    My package says “Ring .25 OZ Bright195 Loops per OZ”. Beadalon brand.

      I can’t find this wire ‘Ring .25 OZ Bright195 Loops per OZ’, could you post a link, the site you recommend doesn’t show it easily/i can’t find it, thanks

        I originally replied directly to Amberella about this, but it’s probably worth saying it again here:

        Unfortunately, I didn’t keep the packaging my memory wire rings came in, so I don’t know the brand name or any specifics. I think I just bought them from Michaels or similar. They came in a package of about 50 and they are about 2cm diameter. That’s all the info I have!
