list of materials
This is the list of
materials and tools
necessary to make 1 ring.
• I've used oxidized copper to create
this ring, but it can be any other
wire –brass, copper, silver or goldfilled.
• 30 cm (11.8’’) of 22 or 23 gauge
wire (0.6 mm in diameter)
• 1 agate bead – size 6 mm
list of tools
You will also need a
round object to make
your ring round –
take note that the
diameter of the „round”
object will be diameter
of your ring. You can
of course use a mandrel
if you have one.
Take one piece of 22 gauge wire and put bead on it, then
take some object with round diameter (for example pen or
small bottle or mandrel) and wrap wire around it as shown
in the photos.
Now wrap both wires around
the bead (See Diagram).
Wrap as close and tight as
Now wrap the one wire around the base of the ring. Wrap as close to
the „eye of the ring” as you can. Then you can wrap it few more
times to make the band look nicer.
After step 4 cut the rest of the wire and then repeat the step
using other wire and other/left side of ring. Then cut the rest
of it. Remember to smooth the cut edges of the wires – it
should not scratch your finger when you will wear the ring.
