Picture of Word rings
In this instructable, I will show you how to make word rings. I took the set 'You are cool' for example. I hope you like it!

Step 1: What do you need

To make this project, you will need:

- Wire
- Pliers
- Round object matching the size of your finger
- Paper
- Pen/pencil (Something to write with will do)

Step 2: Writing

Picture of Writing
First, choose your text and write it down. Using short words will keep it simple.

Think about how to write it so you can make it with wire.

Step 3: The Y of you

So, write it down the way you are going to bend it.

Cut a piece of wire.
Start at the point where you also started writing: The left top of the Y.
Then, bend the wire down. Using the flat nose plier, press the wire closer to the U shape you just created.
With the round nose plier, you can shape the bottom of the Y.

Step 4: The O of you

Take your round nose plier to form the O.
After the O, leave the wire pointing upwards.

Step 5: The U of you

Bend the wire down against the O. Use the flat nose plier to press the wire close against the O.
Using the bigger part of the round nose plier, shape the U.

Step 6: The You ring

Take your round object and press your word against it. Use the wire to make the ring, by wrapping it around the object until you reach the beginning of your word.
The second picture shows where to bend the wire back. When you've bent it back, put it trough the first letter.
Put it back on the round object and shape it, so it becomes round. You can work away the last bit by wrapping it around the ring. 

That was the You ring!

Step 7: The A of are

Write down the word the way you are going to bend it. 

Make half a circle. This will be the first part of the A. Then, bend the wire right up to close the A.
Bend the wire down again and press it closer to the A with the flat nose plier.

Step 8: The R of are

Bend the wire up again. Then make an almost closed circle and finish the R by making a diagonal line down.

Step 9: The E of are

The E is very simple. You just have to make a imperfect loop and then bend the wire to the side. 

Step 10: The are ring

The closing of this ring is exactly the same as with the You ring.

Step 11: The Cool ring

Can you figure this ring out yourself?

Now you have your own set of rings! What can you come up with? Please, show me!
If you have any questions, feel free to ask :)

I know-emilyvanleemput- that ur probaby getting a little tired of replying back to everyone by saying "Thank You, Thank You, Thank You" commenting saying "cool, good idea, etc" but GUESS WHAT?!!! ITS TRUE!!! Dont worry u dont have to say thank u again---- YOUR WELCOME

Actually, I like thanking people. The fact that they like my instructable AND take the time to post a comment on it, that's a reason to thank them already :)
I really like jewelry made out of wire, so this will be really fun to make! Thanks for posting this, it's really cool :)
Thank you :)

Why the questionmark?
I forgot the first part of the question. = Can these be made in "Pig Latin", Google translate maybe.?

i would great if you can use some clear epoxy resin, to make the ring, more hard, because if the ring get attached to something, i will stretch and disarm.
emilyvanleemput (author)  kenchato1 year ago
Yes it would, if I had epoxy resin...
Awesome! These are SO COOL!

Actually, I believe the ring says, "you are coal". The tail of the 2nd O should not drop to the typeface baseline. And, in case you are wondering, yes---I actually DO have Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.
I believe you mean Compulsive Disorder Obsessive (CDO). Obviously the letters must be in the right order.
Yeah, I've seen that before. :) I know it is ment to be humorous, but I actually intentionally omitted the initialism to avoid this very comment. It's not a big deal, it just bugs me (as you can imagine). *sigh*
You know, you are right and I sincerely apologize. As someone who has a wife with OCD (the phrase I used previously is actually something she says), I completely understand the frustration that comes with OCD. I hope that I did not offend too much, and am sorry for any frustration I might have (probably did) cause. It was not my intent, but it is clearly something that I should have left unsaid.

Rather than using manuscript you could use linked or cursive writing making it a lot easier to form.

I've tried a few things and this is the way I prefer it

Be-you-tiful, is what I would make, but the 'tiful' might be a little too long...
emilyvanleemput (author)  PAWZ1 year ago
Maybe make four?
This is such a cute idea! Even a short name would look nice! :) Great job!

Yay, thank you!

Hey, that's pretty cool thanx :-) I'm already thinking of making a set. Now I'm wondering about adjusting the size if I wanted to bundle them all together & wrap the back of the three with one wire. I am very hard on rings,I wear through them, after the back has become flattened! So I was thinking doing that might make it more substantial. And the tail ends could be wrapped in there,too, for a more finished look. Since I have no colored wire on hand, I guess this will be one more thing to add to my "To Make" list. Thanx again! :-)
emilyvanleemput (author)  nconway21 year ago
Thanks!
I think that could work!
These look great! I think I'm going to have to invest in some wire sometime soon :)
Thank you!
