A bauble ring is a statement ring so I like to wear it on my middle finger where it’s more balanced. The adjustable ring bases on these make that easy to do.

This is the most popular ring in my Etsy shop. If you’d prefer, you can just purchase it in a variety of colors in my Etsy shop. Or, you can follow along with this tutorial and DIY!

How to Make the Bauble Ring:

I like to work assembly-line style, doing all of each step at once, and then progressing to the next step, instead of working one bauble at a time.


Step 1: Thread the beads onto the headpins.

Step 2: Trim the headpins using the cutter. You’ll need about 8-10mm to stick out of the bead.

Step 3: Using your round nose pliers, bend back the headpin where it meets the bead.

Step 4: Starting at the tip of the headpin, use the round nose pliers to form a neat loop. Don’t close it completely.

Step 5: Hook your headpin loop on one of the loops of the ring. Use the chain nose pliers to get in there and “squish” the loop closed.
