Picture of DIY Swirly Wire Rings
swirly rings-4.jpg

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),
3) Pliers,
4) Mandrel or any round object.

These are very nice; well done!

I would recommend coating them in sort sort of sealer though, at least on the underside, where they come into contact with skin. Sweat/oxidation could cause them to discolor eventually, and that discoloration could even rub off on one's fingers. Any kind of clear, water-based sealer would work, and will guarantee your rings stay exactly as beautiful as they are now. :)

Is the inner side covered with something (like a varnish) or is it just copper?

Usual copper coated crafting wire.

cool! Kinda reminds me of mehndi! Maybe tap it on the mandrel with a rawhide hammer a few times, to help harden the wire a bit?
Muhaiminah Faiz (author)  jonipinkney2 years ago
Thanks! yes, typical mehndi design! I'll keep that in mind next time :)
