    I love the looks of the huge solitaire pearl in the ring you have pictured; but I think I want to do a creamy-colored one. Yummmmmmmm!!!

  • I would use an amber bead to make a ring that would match a pendant I have. Amber and silver go really well together, at least in my opinion.

  • SusanMC

    I love pearls – I put pearls in almost everything I bead so it would have to be a really pretty pink one!!

  • Debbi C.

    I have some very special beads from my Grandmother. I would use one of those as the focal bead in a ring so that I could have a sweet visual reminder of her each and every day!

  • Katie W.

    There are too many to choose from! I wear black and white the most though so I would probably make a pearl ring first! :)

  • susan

    Not sure I have too many to choose from but it would be something shiny and dark blue. Great giveaway, thanks

  • Stacy S

    I would Love to make a Ring with one the Swarovski Petrol Pearls!!

  • Becky P.

    What a great idea for a giveaway!

    I don’t know what bead I’d choose! I guess I’d probably try to find a beautiful green bead just special for this ring. I wear lots of brown and darker greens, but don’t have a single ring to go with them.

  • I would love to start with a solitary pearl. I love the look of these rings so I would love to learn this technique and have the supplies to make several of these rings. Thank you so much for the opportunity to learn a new skill for 2012.

  • Vivian McCormack

    I would love to use a turquoise (blue) not any other dyed colors as my bead. Love turquoise with silver.

  • Sherry Wooden

    I would use a beautiful freshwater pearl!

  • Glenda Bollivar

    I would use a lovely deep purple amethyst bead; a rectangular cut one with double holes to prevent the bead from moving.
    Thanks
    Glenda B

  • Mary J

    I have several glass beads made by a friend that would really look great as rings. It would be a new way to display my special beads.

  • Paula Rudy

    Sara, I would definitely use Swarovski’s new “Petrol” glass pearl. The night sky with
    silver wire wrap for the stars. Thank you for this give-away!

  • Mary

    I would use a large swarovski crystal, one with a special coating like Bermuda Blue.

  • kathyS

    I would use a stone irregular in shape, possibly turquoise –messy wrap on irregular stone –awesome

  • Trish

    I have a really cool lamp work focal I’d like to make into a ring. ;0)

  • Ooo.. tiger’s eye :) Definitely :)

  • Amy

    I have some faceted pearl beads, a lovely bronze color that would look good in this style of wrapped ring.

  • Natalie

    I would love a cobalt blue Crystal to go with jeans or an emerald green

  • Marlene

    Something like you have never seen is whats in store for the New Year!

  • Kelley Galyen

    It would have to be something in purple…and then a bird’s nest ring…and then a pearl…etc

  • Verna Washingtton

    A Garnet Gemstone, would be my choice.
    It is January’s Birth Stone.
    The day that this contest closes is also my Birthday.
    I just love the colour of Garnet anyway.

  • Debbi Tower

    I love bling and would use a large Swarovski crystal. My personal preferences would be Rose, Pacific Opal or Blue Zircon. Yummy!

  • Lynda Hughes

    What better than lapis lazuli?

  • Ellen Hathcote

    One Large Swarovski Black Pearl please!

  • Karen W

    I would use a Green Girl Studio bead, maybe the Chasing Bunnies Bead for my friend’s daughter who loves her pet bunny.

  • Noahla

    I would love to make a wire wrapped ring with a large Swarovski crystal!! It’s all about the bling!!!

  • Valerie

    I have a beautiful Alexandrite ring my father purchased in Turkey for my 16th b-day many moons ago which, as the years have passed the ring has gotten smaller (ok yes, it could be my finger has gotten larger but don’t tell anyone). I would love to take this gorgeous stone and wrap it in beautiful silver to give it new life.

  • i’ve just really started on my jewelry making journey and don’t have a lot of beads large enough for this ring. you have a wonderful selection of beads here (so glad i found this site!) and i’d love to do something different like use one of diane hawkey’s word beads. i love big, bold statement pieces and i think that’d be pretty funky.

    btw, i am very happy to see all of your jewelry how-to’s here. i now know why none of my wire wrapped rings came out right when i tried a while ago…i didn’t have a ring mandrel! haha… :)

    I would love to see a turquoise bead, silver and turquoise go so well together. Thanks for a wonderful giveaway, an exciting new technique to learn

  • Debbie H.

    Very cool giveaway, I think a large labradorite would make a stunning wire wrapped ring!

  • Kathy H.

    Pearls are my my favorite, a square one would be fun. I’m always open to trying new things. There are many beautiful choices on your site.

    I have made rings but appreciate learning new techniques and have found many ideas in your Inspiration Projects.

    Thank you,
    Kathy

  • Debbie

    I would use the Tanzinite Swarovski octagon fancy stone with silver wire. I love the color!!

  • Lynn H

    A carefully selected Red Creek Jasper bead would make a casual ring, interesting and beautiful!

  • Sara

    I would love to use a red or black or whatever color stands out

  • Jamilah

    Oh! I know just the bead! My big sister gave me and some friends each a huge round faceted plastic purple bead to remind us to follow our dreams confidently and shamelessly! (Sounds strange, but we’re weirdly emotional people lol) I would wrap it with some pretty crystals and wear it in all its obnoxious glory!

  • MelodyJ

    A glass dark blue bead.

  • I have just bought some really large fir epolished beads that would look stunning in a ring like this!

  • Ziska

    I would love to try my hands at this technique, I think I would go for a cluster of pastell pearls with a czech flower in the spirit of spring.

  • I have an antique glass bead with carving in it that needs to have a good home! Thanks for the opp!

  • quiltingpug

    I would love to use a celtic design copper bead. Need to start looking for the stuff to make the copper wrap rings. They look so gorgeous.

  • I’ve been wanting to learn how to make rings! I would choose an aquamarine Swarovski crystal because it’s my birthstone!

  • Kate

    I would use a Swarovsky pearl in petrol and pair it up with jeans. Very simple and elegant!

  • I would feature Baltic Amber as the spotlight to your own wire wrapped ring. I’ve recently read a lot about this fossil resin, which is warm to touch and very well known for its healing abilities.

  • Diana

    I would make first ring in a blue because I wear a lot of jeans. Thanks for this wonderful give away.
