Fun to make swirly jewelries!
I'm obsessed with the 'swirly' pattern and I can't think of making wire jewelries without swirls. I hope you like this swirly ring :)

  • How to make a wire swirl ring. Swirled All Around Wire Ring - Step 1
    Step 1

    Hold the wire bundle from one end but don't cut it off from the bundle,
    Create the first loop at that end by using the looping plier,
    We're going to leave this loop, without making swirls around it.

    Step 2

    Make another loop by winding the wire in the opposite direction of the previous one, (keep 0.5 cm gap between the loops)
    Circle the wire around that loop (second loop) 2-3 times to make the first swirl,
    Don't circle the wire around the loop more than 3 times, otherwise you won't get a smooth round shape for the ring.

    Step 3

    For each swirl you'll have to make a loop first,
    After making the first swirl, make another loop near it but circle the wire in the opposite direction of the second loop, (keep 2 cm gap between the second swirl and the third loop),
    Now simply circle the wire around that loop for 2-3 times.

    When you think that you've made enough swirls for the ring, hold it straight along a ruler to check if the size is right,
    Now cut the wire from the bundle by keeping an inch extra for the final swirl.

    After you're done making the final swirl, use the flat plier to flatten it with the rest of the swirls,
    You should also flatten the other swirls to give them a smooth swirly shape.

    Once you get handy with making swirls you can't stop!
