PATTERN DETAILS

This woven wire ring is adjustable and can be made in different shapes, with the ring shank slanting down or being more uniform and straight. It's fun to experiment and see what you can come up with! The final size of the ring is 6-7 and measures about 3/4" wide with the sides of the ring tapering. Once you learn the technique to make the ring, you can make different sizes. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Like any jewelry skills we learn, working with fine gauge wire is a learned skill. Here is some helpful info for you: If a loop forms as the wire is pulled through the frames, it will get smaller and smaller until a kink forms. To remedy this, uncurl and straighten the wire as soon as a loop begins to form which can be done with your fingers. Also, when pulling the wire through your fingers, don't tightly squeeze the wire or run your fingernails along the wire as it can curl the wire. Pull wire with the pads of your fingers with gentle pressure to avoid curling. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Ring size is adjustable at 6-7

Supplies Needed

  • 6-8' 26-gauge dead soft wire
