How to Make a Rose Bead Ring with Soft Flex Craft Wire
This week on Free Spirit Beading with Kristen Fagan, learn to make this simple wire wrapped rose ring with Soft Flex Craft Wire. These adorable rose beads can be found in some of Soft Flex Company's custom bead mixes from Jesse James Beads like the Valentine Passion bead mix from this month. I combined the rose bead with 20 gauge Craft Wire in a few colors. So. Much. Fun!

Tip: My experience is that if you are using a mandrel like I did, the final design seemed to be one step smaller when finished than where I started. So, I suggest try making it one step larger and it should end up smaller once wrapped.
So nice to change up the rose colors and the wire colors for variations on this design. Try it with different beads to see what works. So many possibilities.
