Project Description

Use your choice of wire to create your own beautiful and unique Sea Waves Ring! This is such a fun project to make as each ring really does turn out differently due to how the separate rings are forged and then soldered together.

I've used 2mm sterling silver round wire to make my ring, but wire as thin as 1.2mm would work just as well as the shaping and stacking of the rings together give the design strength. I'm looking forward to seeing rings made from different gauges of wire, and maybe with different numbers of rings in the stack too!
