Lovely, I'm thinking of making this for someone... What gauge wire was used for this ring?

Mrballeng (author)Blizwolf2012-12-11

I think it's 20. But I'm not so sure. Make sure to coat it.

What do you used to coat it?

Mrballeng (author)MicioGatta2013-01-10

Nail polish

love this! :) This is my first and very quick try, I'm going to do another one later. I've got really thin fingers, so it's a pain to find rings for me, mostly for the one I lately wanted, the over-the-knucle! I still have to solder them closed and I should have polish them better, but I like them.

Looks great. don't forget to coat them so they don't rust.

How many strands of wire did you wrap together?

I'm going for a consult tonight with the guy who's going to teach us to make our wedding rings!

How did it go? Right now I'm working on a ring with a crystal setting. I'm still figuring it out.

I tried to make a fractal heart pendant. Didn't work so well. Back to the drawing board =).

Here's a thought. Where your soldering the ends together put a small nut like you have on the bracelet but smaller. Then you could screw in any type of mount for the gems or whatever.

I like that idea. Good thinking. Thanks.

Well I'm full of it ... ummm ideas that is. Can't wait to see how it turns out. I got my wife started in makeing jewlery about a year ago but your on a different level. But your really inspiring in what your doing, now I need to get her into soldering, then watchout! Keep up the great work!

Amazing idea, very clever. A drilled-out head of a phillips screw might make a good place to set a jewel too.

I love UR series MB! I've gotten into jewelry making after being hurt at work (I think the Brits refer to my job as a Lorry Operator, but I can't stand very long and can't do auto repair or woodworking, so this is a creative outlet & learning new skills gives me a sense of accomplishment, but I'm very low budget & that makes UR stuff that much better!) I saw a show about lostwax casting & found a guild near me that teaches. First I took a chainmaille class, I think you'd enjoy that! Next the casting cast & lastly I faceted a dice shaped piece of Citrine into a Round Brilliant the traditional diamond shape. I've been a member about a year now & if you follow their links you can find good stuff. Enjoy!

You're light years ahead of me. Round brilliant, that's awesome.

Funny you should mention how you got into jewelry making (hope you recover quickly). A couple months ago I was sick and missed a week of work. That's when I got started myself.

Thanks for the link and comment.

Amazing and beautiful once again! You make such brilliant things out of ordinary materials, so much so whenever I see one of your instructables I think "wow why didn't I think of that!"
You are fast becoming my favorite instructables author :) Can't wait for the next one!
