Swirly jewelleries!
I'm very much addicted to swirls and every time I plan to make wire jewellery the 'swirly patterns' pop first in my head!
This is a fun project, besides you can improve your wire jewellery making skills through this project.

  • How to make a wire swirl ring. 6-Swirls Wire Ring - Step 1
    Step 1

    Measure your ring size and convert it into inches or cm, as you want.
    Take the wire bundle and hold one end without cutting it from the bundle,
    Make a small loop on the wire by using a looping plier,
    Wind the wire around the loop 3-4 times to create a swirly pattern.

    After making the first swirl leave a few inches of the wire straight- (the length of your ring size in inches + 2-3 inches to make the second swirl),
    Cut the wire from the bundle after measuring.
    Make another swirl on the other end of the wire as shown in the picture of this step.

    Take the wire bundle and make another swirly pattern, then keep a few inches of the wire straight - (the length of your ring size in inches + 2-3 inches to make the second swirl + 2 inches extra),
    Cut the wire after measuring,
    Now, make another swirl at the other end of the wire, winding it in the opposite direction of the first one,
    Place the 3 swirly wire pieces side-by-side, keeping the longer piece in the center.

    Step 4

    You have to arrange and manage the swirly wires in this step.

    Hold any one of the short swirly wires with the longer one (side-by-side) and slightly bend the longer piece around the short one,
    Hold the last piece of swirly wire and slightly bend it around the center piece.
    Do the same with the other swirls on the other end of the wire.

    Step 6

    Take a piece of wire (4-5 inches),
    Hold the 3 swirly wire pieces side-by-side as arranged,
    Now start coiling the 3 pieces together with the wire, coil the wire 4-5 times or as many times as you want.
    I coiled the wire half an inch around both ends of the 3 swirly wires.

    After you're done coiling the wire use a flat plier to flatten the coils, just to make sure that the coiling is secure.

    Wrap the straight part of the wires around the mandrel or a round object with the swirls facing towards each other.

    You can easily adjust the ring size.

    Enjoy!
