How to Make Adjustable Metal Rings Tutorials

Remember my tutorial on how to make a stamped metal ring using a ring blank?   Would you like to take the next metal smith step and learn how to cut out a ring shape and sand it?  Then check out Rena's tutorial for a simple and adjustable chevron ring.



Notice she uses metal snips.  But you could also use a jeweler's saw if you had one. See this tutorial link How to Use the Jewelry Saw to Cut Out Pendant Shapes.

Once you have the basics, you will be able to use your creativity and come up with neat rings. Here is a great example.  How Mary-Jo Peritore made her corset ring, a Mercurios original design, is on her Flickr photo set. It is a delightful piece with the chains while still remaining an adjustable ring.

What a great idea! I love the chain on the ring, it adds another dimension (beauty and function).
