A Simple Wire Ring

Step 4: Adjusting the Ring

Picture of Adjusting the Ring
The ring will most likely appear crooked at this point - I've found that a good way to even it out is to slide the tip of my flat-nosed pliers under the "bellybutton" while the ring is on the mandrel nice and snug. The pressure will straighten out the ring a bit - you should do this on the opposite side as well.

  • Watch your fingers! If your plier slips you will get gouged unless you position your hands out of the way - it may also help to hold your thumb over the tip of your pliers and the "bellybutton" while you apply pressure.
