Learning how to make a simple wire wrapped ring is the perfect way to practice basic wire wrapping techniques. Not only are they a fun accessory to wear or make with friends, but they also make excellent gifts, as well. Once you get the hang of forming a symmetrical, round band, you're on your way to creating all kinds of unique wire wrapped rings!
One ~21" piece of 22g wire (you can also use 20g)
One 6-8mm bead
Plastic or metal ring mandrel
Chain nose pliers
Step 1: Position Bead on Wire
After selecting your 6-8mm bead, thread it onto your wire. Make sure that it's centered. For this ring, I'm using a 6mm natural garnet bead. Both round and faceted beads will work.
