PATTERN DETAILS

This is a fun ring that needs to be made in loads of different colors! I love combining weaving and coiling as it adds a great dimension and look to any jewelry, not to mention the dimension added by the loops on this ring! The tutorial explains how to make the ring size to your desired size. 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 The tutorial explains how to make the ring size to your desired size.

Supplies Needed

  • 18" 6-gauge dead soft wire
  • 6-7' 26-gauge dead soft wire
  • Flush cutters
