Adjustable leaf ring

Fashion a fun piece using basic wireworking techniques

This ring is adjustable, but one size does not fit all. To keep the leaves lined up correctly when the ring is worn, the weave must be the right length for your ring size. Use these guidelines to determine how long the weave should be for each size range:

  • Small (size 4-6): 2 in. (51 mm)
  • Medium (size 6-8): 2 1/4 in. (57 mm)
  • Large (size 8-10): 2 1/2 in. (64 mm)
  • Extra Large (size 10-12): 2 3/4 in. (70 mm)
