Basic Skills Necessary:

  • This is an easy tutorial, it would be helpful to already know the basics of wirework, for example forming a loop, however detailed instruction and step by step photos are included

Pattern Description:

A stylish all wire ring that is surprisingly easy and quick to make and uses a minimal amount of materials.
Learn to form a ring shank that has an attractive pattern in its binding, whilst also being strong and functional.
I have taken the inspiration for this design from the flowing lines of a Peacocks tail, to create a ring with contrasts of smooth lines and scalloped edges.
Although this is a large ring (1 1/3" tall) it is incredibly comfortable to wear as it conforms to the contours of your finger.
