Jewelry Ring Work Details and Photos

I am always playing with the never-ending surprising ways that wire wrapping ends up forming their own desired outcomes when you play with them with abandon. The dramatic contrast of colors here fully supported the trend of mix wires (silver, copper, brass – 0.7mm).

Once that is firm and secure, create the ring circle (to appropriate size) using a ring mandrel.

Finish off the ends of the wires with swirls, etc.

Gently work harden (with hammer or mallet) the ring band whilst on the mandrel.

The formation of the ring-form here gives this ring an adjustable sizing.
