Welcome to a new episode of ECT TV (Emerging Creatively Tutorials TV!)
Today I have a fun wire ring tutorial. It’s a different take on my popular Wire Wrapped Rose Ring tutorial.

Materials and Tools:
- 16 gauge, dead soft or half-hard round wire
- Wire cutters
- Ring mandrel
We’ll work right off the spool, so we’re not going to cut off any wire for now.
Hold the wire on the size ring you want to make and leave 3 to 4 inches of a tail.
Wrap around 5 times or however many times you like.
Cut the wire leaving a tail of about 3 to 4 inches on the other side as well.
Pull the wires together around the ring mandrel and pull out to the sides to pull everything tightly.
Then twist the loose wires.
Twist around again with both wires. The wires should go under the first wraps.
At this point you can go more freestyle or make a neater rose.
Go around a few more times and then trim the ends of the wire making flush cuts.
Use chain nose pliers to push the ends in.
Here’s what it looks like from the back.
I would love to see your ring! Upload a photo in the comments below!
