For nearly my entire career as a jeweler, I have had requests to make rings. While I dabbled in this area in wire, I did not find any methods or designs that appealed to me. Well, the time has finally come. After a grueling and fun week learning upwards of a dozen different wire-wrapping ring styles and the knowledge to create new styles, I am now a provider of rings!
I have a variety of styles, some made purely of wire with twists and curls, and others featuring beautiful stones and beads. The first style I would like to introduce to you is known as “The Hug.”
“The All Occasion” ring is perfect for everyday wear as well as more formal occasions. The vertical wrapping with the five tiny beads is reminiscent of tuxedo buttons, neat and sleek. Again, it can be customized with different metals. Priced at $55 for sterling silver and $70 for 14kt gold-filled wire.
“The Hidden Bead” are rings that highlight a bead as the focal piece. Here, I have two freshwater pearl beads and one red mountain jade bead to showcase the variety of options. This ring is perfect if you wish to match it to a jewelry set you already own or if you would like a pop of color! The wire-wrap perfectly compliments the roundness of the bead by elegantly twisting around and providing a sturdy setting. Obviously, the bead itself can be customized, and, unlike “The Snake,” I can mix metals if you wish! The starting price for sterling silver is $69 and 14kt gold-filled is $79.
Because these rings must be sized to the customer (with the exceptions of the adjustables), my rings will almost exclusively be by order only. Of course, as I make everything by hand, this will not increase the price! With that said, though, I have priced these based on the type and size of gemstone (where applicable), so if you choose a more expensive gemstone, the price will be adjusted accordingly. I have not priced these for copper wire, so please contact me for more information.
I am so excited to be able to expand my jewelry and offer you all rings. I would like to note that they are perfect gifts for mothers and grandmothers because any rings containing stones can be offered in their birthstone. If you see any styles you’re interested in, or if you would like to order one, please contact me via my custom jewelry form.
