Revamp A Pendant Into a Wire-Wrapped Gem Ring - so simple!
Revamp old or broken jewellery! My mum had given me a few trinkets and this was a pendant which had a deep red gem stone but had several rhinestones missing! So here's a simple way to change that pendant into a gem ring, set in place with wire! I hope you enjoy it :)

  • How to make a wire wrapped ring. Diy: Turn Pendant Into A Wire Wrapped Gem Ring - Step 1
    Step 1

    If you don't have any pendant with gemstones, you can just buy gemstones from a craft store or jewellery store. You can either use superglue or a hot glue gun. I used a hot glue gun as the base of the gem was uneven. You will need a ring base/ring blank, and pliers.

    Turn on your hot glue gun. Make sure it is resting on newspaper with foil beneath. The hot glue gun is ready once hot glue starts oozing out of its nozzle.

    Slip the ring into something round and sturdy if you can as you will be using a hot glue gun. If you are using superglue this is not necessary.

    Cut around 12-15 inches of the wire and start wrapping the gem (once it is already secured). The wrapping depends on your gem shape but opt for a "X" style of wrapping.
