Freedom Flower Ring Instructions
Designed by Artbeads

Let freedom ring with this patriotic design! The cute flower beads are perfect for creating a fun summer idea that you can mix and match with your favorite colors.

Step one:
Glue the medium 5 petal white enameled copper flower bead on top of the large 5 petal red enameled copper flower bead using 1-hour two-part epoxy. Glue the medium 5 petal periwinkle enameled copper flower bead on top of the white flower, rotating the shape so the petals alternate directions. Allow the piece to dry.

Step two:
Cut one 5-inch long piece of 22 gauge brass non-tarnish artistic wire. Thread one end through the 2x7mm gold-filled hollow ring shank (size 7). Read our Handy Tip on working with ring shanks if you need more help.

Step three:
Thread two gold-filled 2.5mm beads onto each wire end. Then thread both ends through the flower beads. Add one more gold bead to each wire end. Trim the wire so there is barely enough to create a bend and then with a pair of chain nose pliers bend the ends down to hold the gold beads.
Approximate size: 7
Estimated time: Less than 30 minutes (plus dry time)
Difficulty level: Beginner
