This ring is super cute and fun to make! It goes with everything! It makes a great gift for your girlfriends! (And it looks impressive even though it’s not that difficult!)
- 18 or 20 gauge, half-hard round wire (any metal you like)
- Ring mandrel
- Wire cutters
- Chain nose pliers
- Serrated chain nose pliers (with teeth)
Cut about 24 inches of wire. If you’re making a small ring, you’ll need less; bigger ring, you’ll need more.
Gather all the wires closely together and move them to about a 1/2 size bigger than the ring size you are trying to make.
Twist the wires. (See photo below.)
However, just do it until you like the look. How many twists you do will depend on the gauge of your wire as well.
Wrap each end through the ring band and around the ring band next to the rose. They should be on opposite sides going in opposite directions.
Note: Sometimes when you pull wire very hard it can break. Be careful!!
After pulling down as hard as you can, bend the wire up and across the ring band. (See photo below.)
Take the ring off the ring mandrel, flip the ring so the other side’s wire is facing down and repeat on the other side.
Using your non-serrated chain nose pliers, push in the ends and make sure they aren’t loose or won’t catch on anything.
