Bend a section of wire (with a wide overlap on both sides) to the size of your ring
Curl the ends in to make sure the sharp sides will not hurt the wearer. This also creates a base to glue the plant material on to.
Glue the plant material or decorations to one loop only to make sure it can still be adjusted. Or glue two separate pieces on each side that comes together when the ring is slipped on.
Adjust the ring by bending it open for a larger fit and closed to have a smaller ring.

Make a small loop the size of your ring to create a flat surface to glue your tiny plant material on.
Curl the wire at irregular intervals to create a natural wire tendril similar to that of a passion fruit plant
The finish of every design should be flawless. Make sure there are no bits of glue visible in your design by carefully removing all traces of spills.
Succulents are really trendy right now. Not just as potted plants but also in designs. All the way from floral accessory to fashion accessory- right on trend!
