I've been trying to make wire rings for a while but couldn't come up with any new design. There are some awesome wire ring tutorials in instructables, you can find them here- http://www.instructables.com/id/DIY-Wire-Rings/ I found the swirly, twisty patterns fun and easy to make. So, in this instructable I'll show how to make swirly copper wire rings with different designs very easily.
Step 1: Materials needed
To make these rings you'll need:
1) Crafting Wire (18-20 gauge),
2) Ruler - to measure wire for making swirls (optional),
4) Mandrel or any round object.
Step 2: Swirly Design-1
Take the copper wire and hold on one end of the wire (do not cut the wire from the bundle),
Create a loop on that end using the plier,
Start winding the wire around that loop to make a swirly pattern,
Circle around the loop 3-4 times or as you wish,
After making the first swirl, leave the wire straight (the length of your ring size), keep 2-3 inches to make the second swirl and 0.5 inch extra. Cut the wire from the bundle after measuring.
Now, make another swirl, winding it in the opposite direction of the first one. You can keep both swirls equal or make them of different sizes.
Now, simply wrap the straight part of the wire around a mandrel or a round object with the swirls facing towards each other.
You can easily adjust the ring size.
