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

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

    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.

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

    PS.
    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.

    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. http://www.patuxentlapidary.com/ 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!
