Make Wire Rings in Minutes, Perfect for Holiday Gifts and Parties
Gift-giving dates will soon be upon us, and I bet many of you like to make handmade gifts for your friends and family. Time to get started! A fun, fast, and easy project to make for friends and family is the versatile wire ring. With minimal supplies that you probably have on hand–wire, pliers, maybe a hammer and some sort of mandrel–you can whip up wire-wrapped rings in no time.
Add some beads or crystals to your wire rings for even more design opportunities. Plus, you can modify this technique to whip up a sparkly and festive cocktail ring to keep you party-ready throughout the upcoming Sparkle Season! It’s fun to wear an eye-catching ring to a dinner party or just for everyday, especially if it’s a conversation-starter that you’ve made yourself. Many jewelry sales are made that way!

I made a similar sterling silver ring once using a faux pearl bead, a tiny Swarovski crystal bead, and a disc of abalone. It took less than ten minutes to make!

P.S. These projects are accessible enough to make during a fun afternoon or evening of jewelry making with loved ones. Have a jewelry-making party!
