Simple swirls ring

Create an adjustable-size ring using two gauges of wire

Creating a focal ring has never been so easy! Using only two gauges of wire and minimal tools, transform four lengths of wire into a swirling, adjustable-size ring that fits perfectly.

You can wrap beads onto the swirls to add extra flair to the ring, or use a torch to ball up the ends of the wires before shaping the ring. If you ball your wire, start with two 5 1⁄2-in. (14 cm) pieces of wire, and incorporate the extra length into the swirl pattern instead of measuring and cutting them to length.
