How to Make Adjustable Squiggle Rings

By on Saturday, October 08, 2011 2 Comments

Is making rings the final frontier for the beginner jewelry maker?  The difficulty is often the sizing of the rings and perhaps the wire wrapping too.

But it need not be a challenge. Making the ring adjustable might just do the trick.  This clever squiggle ring video tutorial by Mark Nelson of Rio Grande works because of its simple construction.

He made sizing easy by first using a piece of copper wire to set the length of wire needed for the actual ring. The squiggles can be made smaller if you are not into statement rings or you could add different flourishes of your own.

  2. I love this ring! I have already made several using silver aluminum wire. They are so cute and quick and easy. My favorite kind of project!
