Make simple rings out of metal wire

How to instructions

  • 1

    Snip a 30 cm length of metal wire (0.4 to 0.8 mm).

  • 2

    Thread one or more beads onto the length of wire, centering them.

  • 3

    Wrap the ends of the metal wire ends around a ring mandrel or other cylindrical object with the right diameter to form a ring band (see illustrations 1 to 3 in the instructions). Take the wrapped metal wire off the ring mandrel and adjust the ring size if needed.

  • 4

    Wrap one wire end tightly around the ring band (best done using flat-nosed pliers). Now wrap the other wire end in the same way.

  • 5

    Cut the ends close to the ring. Bend the ends inwards using flat-nosed pliers to make sure they don’t stick out.

Learning how to make a simple wire-wrapped ring is a great way to practise basic wire-wrapping techniques. Your jewellery pieces will be beautiful and one of a kind. In other words, perfect gifts for friends and loved ones. You can vary the look of your rings by threading on different beads and wrapping the metal wire around them in various ways. Experiment with wrapping the wire around or between the beads. You can also make the ring band by wrapping multiple rounds of wire. For this, you’ll need to start out with a longer length of metal wire. If you don’t have a ring mandrel for ring sizing, you can use any cylindrical object with the right circumference, like a lipstick or a chubby felt-tip pen.
