Welcome to a new episode of Emerging Creatively Tutorials TV (ECT TV!)
Today I’ll sharing a video tutorial of one of my most popular blog tutorials, the Wire Wrapped Rose Ring. I haven’t previously shared this video in a free format.
It’s very pretty and looks great, but it’s pretty simple to make!
By the way, I say Episode 62 in the intro. I don’t know what I was thinking, but it is Episode 60!
Here’s today’s video episode:
Step-by-Step Photo Instructions:
These are step-by-step photo instructions of the exact same tutorial that’s in the video.
- 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.
