2. Cut an 8-in. (20 cm) piece of wire. Using chainnose pliers, make a hook on one end. Hook the wire around a 16 mm ring. Wrap the wire around the ring three to five times. String a color B bead. Holding the bead against the ring, wrap once around the ring. String and wrap six more color Bs, snugging them close together. Finish with a few wraps and trim the excess wire.
