Dainty, Wire Rings. DIY

Make your own 



I have seen a few beautiful, dainty, wire rings lately and I have fallen in love.
Case in point.
 Kelly From The Glamouri
had on these two simple silver rings from her Ship wrecked Shoot.

This Small heart ring from

This beauty from Etsy


And this dainty little Heart ring
Also from Etsy

The best thing about most of these rings are
that you can make them yourself, with a few supplies, and a little know how.

Tutorial
Things You Need.


  1. Wire: 20 gauge *Wal-mart
  2. Beads
  3. Candle
  4. Pliers


 Cut your wire  the length you want.  
This wire was 6 inches long, for this  particular ring I am doing.

 Take your candle and wrap the wire around .  
You will have to judge what size you want  by your finger.
 Twist it around once
Slide on your bead on 
make sure the hole is lined up west to east ..
not north to south

 Start to wrap one of your wires, starting at the top of the bead and working your way down.

 Then wrap the other wire, doing the same thing. Start at the top (in between) the other wire and work your way down.
 The end piece will be sticking out : 
so use your pliers to push it down flush
 How dainty




Happy Wednesday!!
Lots of <3

  6. Great tutorial!! Thanks! I've been wanting to try these! Do you think sliding a ring you own onto the candle, then marking where the ring sits on the candle would help determine size? I want to say yes, but I almost wonder if it would make it a hair too small...what do you think?

    1. I do, do that. I have figured what size I want and marked it. It is naturally making a small indent in my candle but not enough to make too big of a difference on the size. I was thinking if it did, I would just go a hair up on the candle and then mark it so the indent would fit perfect. I would love to see what you create. Send me pics when you make them.

  11. I have made a few rings following your guide and they never come out as nest as yours. Also what is the importance of having the beads going east to west. I find it hard to keep the bead tight to the wire as I'm wrapping and it never seems in the center, it's always kinda off to the side or crooked. :/ please advise! Love these rings so much!!! (:
