DIY Jewelry Tutorial – How to Make A Baroque Pearl gold filled Chain Ring (or Any Beaded Chain Ring)

In this video. I will show you how to easily make a baroque pearl ring using wire and gold filled chain.  You can use this same method to make any beaded chain ring. This is very simple and quick to make!

Often I have left over small segments of chain and this is a great use for those segments.  First you need to measure to make sure you have enough chain to make this ring. 

Note: Your knuckles may be bigger than where you want the ring to sit on your finger. If this is the case, use the knuckle as the area to measure.

The next step is to take a piece of wire and thread the chain link on one end. You can then follow with the pearl (or your bead of choice). Allow the chain to drape naturally. You will then take the other end of the gold filled chain and flip it up to thread.  In doing this, you will be able to avoid the chain being twisted in the process.

Now you will need to start by wire wrapping the one end of the chain securely to the pearl.  Using round nose pliers, make your loop. Slip the chain link into the loop before closing the loop.  How many wraps around depends on preference, thickness of the wire.  After you finish wrapping that side, trim and adjust.

Tip – Is you chain too short? You can compensate by making more wraps to create a slightly longer bar.  When planning this, keep in mind that you may wish to match wraps on the opposite side. You don’t want to make it too long or too short.

Now, you will have to shift the pearl. Shift to the other end of the gold filled chain, against the loop to reduce excess slack in the wire.  This is a good time to stop and try on the ring to make sure the size is ok.  If it is too large, you can trim off some of the chain.  If it is too short, you may be able to salvage it by making a longer wrap.  

Once you are happy, wrap the other end of the gold filled chain securely.  Finally, simply trim and adjust.

You can push down the wrapped loops on either side of the pearl (bead) to curve it around the finger.  Note that this would make your ring slightly looser, so use your judgement.  

Now your ring is finished! WATCH NOW
