Step 1: Use all three wires to string the flower bead to the center of the wires. Attach one Bead Stopper to the wires on one side of the flower bead. Hold the wires on the other side of the flower bead and braid them together. Use all three wires to string the crimp tube. Place a Bead Stopper on the ends of the wires.

Step 2: Remove the first Bead Stopper. Braid the three wires together. Use all three wires to pass through the crimp tube in the opposite direction as the other wire ends. Place the Bead Stopper back on the wire ends.

Step 3: Place the ring on the desired finger and adjust both ends of the wires to size. Make the ring slightly larger than the desired finished size as it will shrink slightly when crimped. Remove the ring from the finger and crimp. Click here for crimping instructions. Remove Bead Stoppers. Trim wire ends.
