handmade wire rings

For Christmas I made matching sterling silver rings for my sisters inspired by this. They turned out pretty great! I had to be kind of sneaky to try to figure out everyone's ring size without being obvious. It's hard to tell in these pictures, but the beads are pretty tiny and it makes it look really simple and delicate. I'll have to post a tutorial on how to make them eventually because it took me a while to figure out a good way to do it so that both sides look the same. The beads were too small to feed the wire through twice otherwise it would be really easy. The sterling silver wire and beads were kind of expensive. I got them for half off which made it do-able. You could definitely do this with any wire or beads and it would be a great, cheap craft. I'll get a tutorial up eventually. But for now I just wanted to share!

Thanks to my Grandma Tyler who gave me the Hobby Lobby gift card that made this possible!
