A Tutorial on the Sea Anemone Ring

I did a post on this ring a few months back, but no video tutorial.  This has been such a popular ring, and just catches everyone’s attention when I wear it.  It such a nice cocktail ring or just a “feel good ring”.  The ring would take on a different look depending on which ring finding you are using.  The trick is to just fill up the loop with as much dangles as you can – which can be quite a challenge, but then you get such rewarding results. I have used the olive shaped paper beads and the small round beads in making these rings.


This ring is made with the small round paper beads.


You can also try and wire wrap the dangles into the ring loop finding instead of the rosary loop.


I hope you have fun this week end making these rings.



Thanks for visiting……..

    LOVE the rings! We make paper beads and have made necklaces, bracelets and earrings with them but haven’t tried a ring — this is definitely on our To Do list!

    Hi, I don’t understand where th 1/4 comes in ?

    • JaniceMae 1 February 2011 at 10:54 pm Permalink

      Hi! This will be the size of your finished bead from side to side or the widest point of your bead, in the middle. The length of the bead is from the top to bottom where the holes are, the width is the middle of your bead. Just remember that you paper strip is shaped like an isosceles triangle.

    Thank you ! Do you mean 3/8 at the widest end 14 long & 1/4 at the tip ? Can’t wait to make this ring !!!! I have been making beads all evening and for several days but I made them 1/2″ wide so now I have to make some in this size. What else is there to do in this storm in Ohio !

    • JaniceMae 1 February 2011 at 9:44 pm Permalink


      3/8 inch at the base and the tip of the triangle should be the pointed part not 1/4 inch, the length can be 14 inches or longer. I’m sorry to hear about the storm…

    Hello Janice, Can you please tell me how wide and how long the triangle paper is for the sea anemone ring is ? Are the width (1/2″) and length (1/4″ long) correct for the olive beads ?

    • JaniceMae 1 February 2011 at 8:05 pm Permalink

      Hello! The paper beads I used for the sea anemone ring are what I call “olives”. The measurement at the base is 3/8 of an inch and the width is 1/4 of an inch. The length of the triangle strip should be approximately 14 inches. I hope this helps you. Janice

    Hi Janice,

    I loved the way you explained how to make this ring, but how big is the paper bead.

    • JaniceMae 3 November 2010 at 1:07 pm Permalink

      Hi Rosa,

      The olive shapes beads are almost 1/2 an inch long and 1/4 inch wide and the round beads are about 6mm in size. Janice

    I looked at the tape again. It looks as though the ring base has
    a loop in the middle and surrounded with several others?
    Please let me know if my description is correct.

      Hi Leigh,

      The ring you are referring to has three loops side by side on the band. I may have one left on my shop, it is gold filled not silver.

    I’m trying to locate the ring findings for the second ring that you
    demonstrate above. Could you please indicate what type of finding this
    is. Thank you so much.

    • JaniceMae 31 October 2010 at 8:24 pm Permalink

      Hi Leigh,

      I think you are referring to the ring finding that has 3 loops in it, instead of just one.

    I am not this advanced but they sure do look beautiful!

  12. Deb 17 April 2010 at 10:59 am Permalink

    This is a Beautiful ring! On the youtube video of making this ring it looks to me that on your other hand you have another type of paper bead ring? Either way it’s a nice ring.
