This tutorial shows you how to make a beautiful flower non-adjustable ring of your own, using the "Spike Technique", also teach you the "Spike Technique" as a Bonus!!!
This technique is mainly consisting of continuously aligning small loops in a row, using just a pair of round nose pliers and I believe that a skillful Beginner in wirework would be able to make a beautiful ring after practicing a little bit the spike technique. However, I consider this as an Intermediate level tutorial.
Once you will understand the idea of "spike" and that you may "play" with plain spikes and have fun during the process, instead of taking them "as plain as they are", you will be able to design various and amazing creations of your own! You may opt to use any other kind of wire such as copper, bronze, silver plated, etc. as long as you stick to the given gauges. You may also choose to embellish the center or the flower with any kind of round beads or gemstones that pleases you.
A couple of pictures at the end of this tutorial highlight the way you can use my design to create variations and make not only beautiful rings but also pendants and earrings. Possibilities are endless so let your creativity speak for you!
Tutorial is 46 pages long with over 120 color photos with relevant, detailed instructions given right beside them. Pages 30 to 46 contain the Spike Technique Tutorial. I would suggest reading it on the computer and then pick out the pages that you want to print to have at hand while following along.
