Ethnic Ring - a New Tutorial
From the moment when I presented the Poseidon's Eye Ring, many of you have asked me if I'm going to make a tutorial for this design. And here it is: 32 steps, 32 pictures and simple instructions - all you need to make this unique ring.
And here's a list of materials and tools necessary to make a ring in 7.5 US size (18mm in diameter):
•3 pieces - 30cm (12'') each - of 0.8mm (20 gauge) fine silver or dead soft sterling silver wire
•15cm (6'') of 0.6mm (23 gauge) wire (doesn't have to be silver, can be any other metal)
•1.5m (60'') of 0.4mm (26 gauge) fine silver or dead soft sterling silver wire, cut into two pieces: 1m (40'') and 0.5m (20'')
•1.5m (60'') of 0,25mm (30 gauge) dead soft sterling silver wire, cut into two equal pieces
•14 beads – rondelles measuring 2-3 by 3-4mm (I've used faceted rondelles of labradorite and crystal moonstone)
•optional – liver of sulfur
As you can see - no glue or solder are required to make this ring! It's all about wire-wrapping! And I'm sure the ring will make a great Christmas gift for those you love :)
