Category:

Type:

Ring

Skill Level:

medium skill level requirement Intermediate

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 unique band style ring, both stylish and comfortable. 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.
