Creating a Simple Ring Base

The PCAGOE Monthly Challenge is "Rings".

I've seen several gorgeous "all polymer" examples lately, but in the interest of time I chose to stick with wire for this project.

Using 14 ga silver plate wire, I wrapped a metal mandrel, trying to stay close to my chosen size. To even up the wraps, I then flipped over the wrapping to stretch the upper, smaller wraps to the same size.

I twisted the wire around itself and then created a few kinks which will be embedded in the polymer. 

Next, I made my polymer base, textured, signed and cured.

Multiple bases could be created up to this point, just waiting for the final inspiration! I chose to cover this base with a rich, smoky purple, plus some shavings from a snake-skin block. A textured finish keeps the inevitable scratches to a minimum, but I just had to sand and buff the edges :D


  1. Fabulous tute Susan! Love your beautiful ring too! :)

  2. Thank you Susan. I've always stayed away from making rings because I find it daunting to make the base. You make it look so easy. I know it takes much experience to make it look easy. Thanks for sharing.
