Beaded Cluster Rings

Beaded Cluster Rings

TIME REQUIRED: 40 minutes



- Adjustable Beadable Ring
- 4mm Miracle Beads, assorted colors
- wire cutters
- 28 – 32 gauge wire

I promise, friends, these are way easier to make than they look!


The first thing I did was cut a long piece of wire and thread one end of it through two of the holes in the ring base a few times, wrapping it tightly so it was secure and leaving the loose end on the top {we don’t want any scratched fingers!!

Then, starting with the outside ring of holes, I threaded wire up through a hole, through a bead, and down through the hole on its left.  For the next one, I brought the wire up through the hole on the right of my bead, added a new bead, and put the wire back down through the hole underneath my first bead.  Make sense?  If you know embroidery, I was kind of back stitching.

I continued working around the ring base until the whole outside circle was full, then I moved to the inside and did basically the same thing.  Then, I added a few beads on top of the ones in the center to give it a full, domed look.

The fun part is coming up with different color combinations and designs!  For my first ring, I alternated teal and purple; for another, I did all light pink.  They’re the same style but look totally different!

Once I was happy with the amount of beads, I wrapped the wire around the bottom of the ring base a few times, right where it joined the ring band.  Then, I cut the extra off and made sure the end was secured and not sharp.

I love that the rings are adjustable, so I can wear them on different fingers too!  If I don’t adjust it at all, it fits on my ring finger, or if I open it just a bit, I can wear it like this!


I’m so pleased with how these turned out!  They’re colorful and fun, and like nothing else in my jewelry collection.  They’re different enough to be a statement piece, but not so huge that they interfere with the daily business of all the things on my to-do list.  I do recommend taking them off before showering or washing your hands though to preserve the quality and appearance.


What’s extra fun, I think, is that the particular beads I used {called Miracle Beads from} have a way of reflecting light that makes them appear to almost glow from within, which is a neat effect when the ring is on your hand!


I’m thrilled with how they turned out and can’t wait to try some other color combinations!  Would you wear a ring like this?

    I love these! I really like that they’re a statement piece like you said, but not totally blinging in your face. It’s just enough to dress up an outfit
