DIY Wrapped Crystal Ring

October 7, 2016
DIY Wrapped Crystal Ring
I love making rings but sometimes it can be kind of tricky (cutting stones, setting them in bezels, soldering, etc) Today I’m going to show you a technique that’s easy and inexpensive! This wire wrapped setting is minimal and it really lets the crystal nugget take center stage.

DIY Wrapped Crystal Ring supplies:
Ring mandrel
Luster Stone Nugget
Bendable jewelry wire
Glue
Jewelry pliers

Cut your wire to 20 inches. Wrap around the mandrel 4 times leaving an equal length of wire on each side.

Place the nugget against the ring and wrap the wires tightly over and around it.

Wrap the wire around the nugget one more time. Loop the wire around itself at the base 3-4 times. Cut off any excess.

Repeat with the other side of the nugget.

Apply a bit of glue to the wire to ensure that the nugget doesn’t slip out.
