So I know everyone has seen those awesome chevron rings and wire wrapped rings on Pinterest, and many of you may have attempted to create them. They aren’t too difficult, and we all love them! This tutorial is for those of you looking for a quick, awesome ring that takes less than 5 minutes to make!
Here is what you will need:
Craft wire- I prefer 16 gauge wire, it is easy to bend yet stays in shape!
Wire Cutters-can get these at any craft store
Ring Sizer- If you don’t have one, you can use a marker
Beads- Two beads, I like to use old beads from broken jewelry
Glue- E-6000 is my go-to for jewelry making
Step 1: Cut about one ring of wire
Step 2: Wrap the wire around your sizer (or maker) 3 times. Cut excess so the ends are on the same side of the ring.
Step 3: Fit your beads, make sure they don’t budge when you put them on. If they do, I suggest finding something with a smaller bead hole.
Step 4: Apply some E-6000 to the ends and slide your beads on. If there is a bit of wire sticking out, use a nail file to smooth it down.
Let it dry and enjoy rocking your new statement piece!!
