1) Hold Band stamped 1 (rounded outside band) with the irregular portion up and in your left hand. 2) Bring Band stamped 2 (other outside band) up against 1 band forming a diamond shape. Note these are the outside bands when the ring is assembled.
3) Bring up one more band from bottom on each side. These are bands 5 and 6. They will fit together with two bands remaining hanging underneath. 4) Grasp band stamped 4 in your right hand with the stamp facing towards you, allowing remaining four bands (1,2,5,6) to fall to one side. This band is the one that crosses over on a diagonal when the ring is assembled
5) Take the single band hanging on the bottom, stamped 3 and bring it up towards you with your left hand until the two bands are parallel 6) Holding the 3 band between your thumb and forefinger, turn the band counter clockwise
7) Continue turning until you have completed a 180-degree rotation 8) The two bands should fit together locking in the 4 remaining bands. (1,2,5 and 6).
9) When you have completed the last step, if you turn the ring right side up the 3 and 4 bands should create an X 10) Take the first band on the same side which is 6 and rotate the band until the irregular shaped part is on the inside of the ring
11) Bring band up and fit against 3 and 4. Be sure that the v shaped part is over the remaining loose bands 12) Turn ring around and start rotating 5 band until the irregular shaped part is on the inside of the ring
13) When you have completed the rotation, bring 5 band up against the three other bands, again being sure that the v shaped part is over the remaining loose bands.  Bring band up so that it fits against 3,4 and 6. 14) Turn ring around and start rotating 2 band until the irregular shaped part is on the inside of the ring
15) When you have completed the rotation, be sure that the v is over the remaining band, 1. Leave this band loose, as the tight weave requires you to complete the next steps before it will fit into place 16) Turn ring around and start rotating 1 band (reaming band) until the irregular shaped part is on the inside of the ring. Be sure that the v shaped part is under band 2.
17) The last two bands should fall into place. If you are having problems, be sure that you have the band with the v part of 2 and 1 in the correct order. Admire your puzzle ring!
