Skill Level:

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • This is a high level intermediate to advanced tutorial - It assumes you have a very good grasp of basic wire handling skills and terminology. I define basic wire handling skills as cleaning and straightening wire; good control of square wire and flat nose pliers; completing a basic binding wrap; and creating loops and hooks. If you feel you need to build your wire wrapping skills before tackling these rings, please see my Back to the Beginning Bracelet tutorial http://www.craftsy.com/pattern/jewelry/bracelet/back-to-the-beginning----bracelet/20367 written for the beginning wire artist from square one!

Pattern Description:

The Clasped Ring evolved because of a simple need to get a ring on and have it fit comfortably despite enlarged knuckles from arthritis.

For this tutorial I walk you through the construction of a fancy delicate clasped ring that is lacy and delicate looking, but surprising durable. At the end of the tutorial, I include all my favorite links for tools (with photos), materials, and suggestions for alternate sources. There is also a ring size chart to help you create your perfect ring.

What inspires me??? Hmmm..... Everything!!..... I'm not being cheeky, everything seems to inspire me - most days' designs and ideas pop into my head, and I'm not fully aware of what triggered them. I keep notepads everywhere, and have even had to pull my car out of traffic, to jot down design ideas before they evaporate. Though after cutting off a Sheriff last year, I am more careful to look ...
