Copper is wonderful material for jewelry especially if you have warm undertone of the skin.

It's also very easy to work with it , just perfect for beginners.

I used only basic tools so you don't need any special equipment for making this ring :-).

I like this ring a lot but I feel like something's missing in the last instructions - "give it the round shape on for example thick marker with the help of pliers"

In the pic of the final ring where you don't see the wires sticking out, did you file them all the way down and just squeeze it together or did you smooth and round them and then push each side into each other, kind of like intertwining them? I ask because I'm wondering if you don't do that, does the wire ravel off the end with use?

Thanks!
