Wire wrapped rings are a popular design for handmade jewelleries. This tutorial will show you how to make a wire wrap ring in 5 simple steps. What’s great about this design is that the ring size is adjustable. You can create the ring in different colors and with different sizes of beads. You can make a wrap as many times as you like and create variations how you would like to end the ring.
The tutorial is catered for beginners or anyone who loves to learn this basic wirework technique. It has in-depth instructions and ultra-clear, close-up photos at each step. Additionally, you can ask me question you have on the tutorial. No more getting stuck and frustrated on a confusing or just plain inaccurate pattern.
Here is the video tutorial for the jewelry:
- 15 inches 0.7mm (21ga) wire
- 1.2cm in diameter round bead
- Wire cutter
- Flat nose plier
- Round nose pliers
Step 1: Cut 15 inches 21ga wire and make curve at one end of the wire
Step 2: Slide in your 1.2cm round bead.
Step 3: Using your forefinger and thumb turn the bead in clockwise direction, wrapping the wire onto the bead.
Wrap the wire at least 2 times.
Step 4: After wrapping the wire twice onto the bead, make a 3rd wrap halfway the round bead and then bend the wire 90 degrees to the right like shown in this picture
Wrap the wire, about the size of your ring finger onto the mandrel.
Wrap the wire at least twice.
Take it off from the mandrel and this is how it should look like
Step 5: Continue to wrap the extended wire halfway onto the mandrel and then make a loop at the end of the wire with your round nose pliers.
Then bend or press the loop sideways and you’re done!
Create lots of adjustable rings in different colors! I hope you like the tutorial.
