The basic single stone wire wrapped ring is relatively easy to make and does not require soldering. You can either use a ring mandrel or dowels which give you the right dimension for the sizes you want.
One lovely variation is the herringbone wire wrap ring tutorial I came across is by Elle Gee Designs. The wrapping style is much neater than the informal wrapping of many ring tutorials.
It does require you solder the main ring first which is not that hard to do if you have a soldering iron and a bit of flux as she explains. When you heat up the ring by touching it with the soldering iron, the flux melts and melds the edges together. Make sure the edges are filed so they meet well in the first place!
