This tutorial shows you how to make the rings from the first three photos but you can make all of the rings from photo #4 with this technique and much, much more. Yay versatility! :D
Skill level: intermediate (or maybe even easy)
To make this ring you will need:
- 3 rings 18ga (1mm) thick. It can be flattened wire but round is fine too. These are US 8-9 - 80“ of 28ga wire (2 meters of 0,30mm wire) – I used fine silver - Oxidizing agent of your choosing (optional)
Tools needed: - Chain nose pliers (the ones with a narrow tip) or a pair of sturdier tweezers - Whichever cutting tool you like (to cut the thin wire) - Soldering equipment (optional) - soldering is not covered in this tutorial
If you were wondering how can soldering equipment be optional: The rings do not even have to be soldered, you can use straight pieces of wire – in which case you need to have an extra inch or two of wire on each side to close/finish the ring. That can be done in any number of ways, depending on your style and skill level. Most popular are various swirls or wrapping a bead with those wires. You can get very creative :) It is up to you to decide if you want to use soldered (closed) rings or 3 pieces of wire which you will wrap together; this pattern works either way (it is easier if you use wires because they are not closed like rings so you do not have to pull the wire through at all, just wrap with it).
So, if you do not solder you can still learn how to do this wrap and finish the ring differently. Not all hope is lost :D
In case you want to make the exact same ring as the one shown prior knowledge on soldering is a must as this is not taught in this tutorial.
Thank you very much and have fun making lots of rings! \o/

I am still new to wire wrapping, and I've found it seems somewhat difficult to find a good men's ring tutorial. This one was GREAT! Now to get soldering down. 😀
Your files will be available to download once payment is confirmed. Here's how.
PayPal, within 2 days from the purchase. If you need more time please let me know before buying (I am flexible but need to know what is going on :D ).
LAYAWAY It is possible for all items over 150$ Can be set up according to your needs (frequency/number of payments). If you would like to know more please send me a message.
I also offer the following option: you pay a non refundable down payment of 10-20% of the item value, save up the rest within 2-4 months (depending on items value) and pay in one payment
CUSTOM PIECES Yes, i can make them :) You can give me detailed instructions re. the design of the piece and set the price range. The only new thing here is that i will from now on need a non refundable down payment before i start making your piece.
RESERVING A PIECE Yes, you can reserve a piece. The news is that i will from now on need a non refundable down payment in this case too. The percentage needed for the down payment depends on the piece selected.
Explanation of the non refundable down payments: if there is no down payment people order or reserve a piece and some never come back to buy it. Most of them do but some don't and those are becoming more and more numerous lately. I think my collection of never sold custom orders is quite full and i have also had sufficient amount of financial damage from telling people who wanted to buy an item right away 'this item is reserved' and then never hearing back from the reservee again. I think if a person is really serious about buying something a certain percentage of the total amount as a down payment should not be the problem :)
Returns & exchanges
Returns are possible but not recomended due to possible high costs (covered by the buyer). Unfortunately i cannot be held responsible for items lost or damaged by the post; no refunds will be issued in those cases. I make jewelry because i love it and i'd like to continue making jewelry for the rest of my life - it is not my intention to cheat people or have unhappy buyers but at this time i don't have another option of sending jewelry to you (other than standard post) and also cannot insure the package (nobody covers jewelry). If you are not 100% sure about buying the item or have any other questions please let me know. I do my best to photograph, describe and present my jewelry as accurately as possible and will answer all additional questions you might have.
Buyers are responsible for any and all duties and customs charges that may be incurred.
