Like I've said in my previous ible that I've made a list of 10 swirly wire jewelries, well here's the second one- 6 swirls wire ring. Making swirly patterns using wire is really easy and fun and I'm sure you'll have fun making this swirly ring :)
Go make one!
Step 1: Materials Needed
1) Crafting wire - 18-20 gauge,
2) Crafting pliers,
4) Ruler - to measure ring size and wire for making swirls.
Step 2: Making the First Swirl
Take the wire bundle and hold one end but don't cut the wire from the bundle,
Take a looping plier and make a small loop on the wire,
Start winding the wire around the loop to make the swirly shape,
Wind the wire around the loop 3-4 times, but not more than that.
This is the easiest way of making swirls with wire (or probably the only way!) :p
Step 3: Making more Swirls
Now cut the wire from the bundle after measuring.
Make another swirl on the other end of the wire as shown in the picture of this step, you can keep both swirls equal or make them of different sizes,
You'll need to make one more swirly wire piece like this one.
Take the wire bundle and make another swirly pattern, then keep a few inches of the wire straight - (the length of your ring size in inches + 2-3 inches to make the second swirl + 2 inches extra),
Cut the wire after measuring,
Now, make another swirl at the other end of the wire, winding it in the opposite direction of the first one,
Place the 3 swirly wire pieces side-by-side, keeping the longer piece in the center of the short ones (see the last picture of this step)
