Introduction: Dainty Knuckle Rings!!
I've been seeing this trend everywhere. They can be sized to your own fingers. I've been wanting to try this project for a while, I hope the steps will be clear.
Step 1: Supplies:
- 20mm gauge wire
- 16mm jump rings
- Small jump rings to attach charms
- Any cylindrical item to wrap the wire around. You can use a marker, lipstick, pencil, etc.
Step 2: Copper Wire Rings..
Wrap the wire around the marker, to make it into a ring shape. You will be getting wire coil. Use the pliers to cut the wire. I made 4 ring shapes with a 6” wire coil. As I don’t have a round nose pliers I had to find a way to prevent the wire ends poking my skin. I applied a drop of glue to the wire end and passed through a pearl. You have to do this for every ring because the end of the wire is very pokey!
First ring I made, I added half pearls to the end.
Second ring, I passed through 6 small pearls and secured the ends with the same trick I did on the first ring.
Third ring I made was the same exact first ring with small pearls at the ends.
Fourth copper wire ring was just accessorized with a charm attached with a small jump ring and ends secured with pearls.
Step 3: Make It Easier With Jump Rings..
If you are not familiar with wire jewelry making, you can use large jump rings to avoid the hassle of wire bending and cutting.
I used 3 large jump rings. I attached a charm to one ring using a small jump ring. These rings can be worn in different ways.
Step 4: Done..
You can make all sorts of shapes; personalize them to your taste!
I love my statement pieces, but I think these minimal rings add just enough shine and girly-ness. The only down side is that the rings tend fall off because the wire bends so easily.
