This adorable wire wrapped ring is really easy to make and it doesn't require a lot of materials. I've been wearing mine around for a while and I've gotten a ton of compliments on it. 

To get started, you'll need:

A 6" piece of wire: The wire type doesn't matter. It can be copper, silver, gold or any random base metal that you pick up from a craft store. I recommend the gauge be a little thicker. The wire used in this tutorial is an 18g nickel. The ring in the main image is a 22g sterling silver. The one I wear around all of the time is 22g and I've never had issues with it, but I would not recommend going any thinner than that.

Round nose pliers: The round nose pliers can be replaced with a small dowel rod or a grilling skewer if you don't want to invest in a good pair of pliers, but it will be slightly harder to make the ring. If you do invest in pliers, I would not recommend any pair with quality below the one linked. Your pliers are your best friend in the wire wrapping world.

Flat or needle nose pliers: It's very hard to find a good replacement for these, so I highly recommend these. You can get great pairs of these in plier sets, some of which have lifetime warranties. 

Step 1: L

To make the L, start by curling the end of the wire under to make a loop with your round nose pliers. Use the top of the pliers to make a smaller loop. This will be the top of your cursive L.

About a quarter of a centimeter from the bottom of your first loop, make a second small loop with your round nose pliers as shown in picture 2. This will be the angle of the L. Bring the excess wire farther than a 90 degree angle so that you can make the bottom of the L curly and cursive-looking.

Take your round nose pliers and place them on the bottom of the L, as shown in picture 3. Gently bend the wire so that there is a nice curve in the bottom. It is helpful to use the lower, larger part of your pliers for this.
I tried to make something like this. I will have to give it another go. This one looks so nice! Thanks for sharing and do have a splendorous day! <br>sunshiine
