We are loving all the thin little rings we’ve been seeing around so we thought, why not make our own? Our favorite was this little initial ring. We made a “W” for Wiseling, but this can easily be translated into any letter.
Isn’t it cute? Read on for the steps.
You’ll need pliers, a wire cutter, a ruler, and 18 guage brass wire. A chart of the alphabet also comes in handy.
Step 1: Cut about 6 inches of wire.
Step 2: Bend the wire to form your initial. The letter diagram is helpful in determining where to begin and how to bend the wire.
Step 3: Use a dowel rod or your finger to form the ring band. The dowel rod will make a rounder ring, while using your finger ensures a custom fit.
Step 4: Once your ring band is formed, thread the excess wire through the loop and cut, leaving about a 1/2 inch extra.
Step 5: Loop the extra wire over and pinch, then trim off any left over.
Ta da! You have your very own, custom-made initial ring.
