A super easy and super cheap DIY!
This ring makes in under 10 minutes and is great for those wanting to start into making wire jewelry. It’s trendy and very petite. These little rings are very pretty made in colored wire as well. So grab your coffee and safety glasses, and let’s get started.

I used 22 gauge Artbeads® Designer Wire in Silver Non-Tarnish for this project. This is a very soft wire and is easily manipulated. If you want a stiffer wire, choose a half-hard variety of wire such as Beadalon® German Style Wire.
