Last but not least is this deceptively easy wire wrap pattern. This design initially uses a rhinestone crystal in a sew-on setting, but gemstones can just as easily be used in the settings to create stunning handmade gemstone rings that rival any commercially made rings.

    I’ve got to agree with Luba- I’m exploring my craftsy membership and I’m finding a lot of cool articles like this and a majority of the links are dead links that take me back to the home page rather than to a tutorial. It’s nice having these compiled articles, but not being able to access the tutorials is kinda…defeating?

    I’m very upset bc i paid for membership and not able to access the classes or tutorials. In tutorials for rings it doesn’t have a link or tutorials itself. What’s the point of getting membership ? Very disappointed.
