Informal Wire Wrapped Ring Tutorials

By on Sunday, July 21, 2013 2 Comments

It might be difficult for beginners to create a beaded flower ring.  There are actually two parts to the design - the flower itself and the ring band.  So learning how to do just the one thing might well help someone starting out with wire work.

Amy over at As the Bunny Hops has an easy wire wrapped beaded flower ring tutorial. The flower part is a popular way of wiring side drilled beads with a central bead together.  But what she does next is to simply wrap it around a basic adjustable ring band.

You could also try using a metal ring blank like I used in this past tutorial for a simple stamped metal ring.  But you must wire as carefully as possible to ensure comfortable wearing.

Another informal wire wrapped ring tutorial is by reader Divya over at the Jewels of Sayuri blog.  This one cleverly uses a patterned and flattened wire  strip salvaged from a broken bangle.

  1. Hey thanks for linking upto my tutorial

  2. That flower is so cute. I love wire-wrapped briolette flowers: just find a handful of pretty briolettes (glass, stone, crystal, facetted or smooth), wire them together and you have a beautiful flower that can be used in a pendant, brooch, earring, bracelet, ring etc (depending on size). Especially good for beginners that enjoy seeing a simple shape forming a flower in front of their eyes in seconds or minutes. And depending on the choice of briolettes/drops, the flower can become everything from whimsical and colourful to elegant and expensive-looking.
