Pattern Description:

Published in the April/May 2014 issue of Step by Step Wire Jewelry!!! ;))

Knot a Ring tutorial teaches you step by step, how to form a great looking knot ring from just one piece of wire and minimal tools.

The initial project in this tutorial is rated as intermediate, but also includes more advanced variations; 2-wire knots and 1/2-round wire knots.

This tutorial not only teaches you a great looking ring, but valuable techniques on affecting ring sizes, and working on a mandrel.

Altering the number of wraps on the mandrel, metal used, how tightly the knot is pulled, and choosing to oxidize or not, creates a very satisfying variety of looks in this ring. Also try using 18g for a ladies ring and a heavier gauge for a man's ring, and create a beautiful his and hers set of bands.

I keep notepads everywhere, and have even had to pull my car out of traffic, to jot down design ideas before they evaporate. Though after cutting off a Sheriff last year, I am more careful to look ...
