DIY Stacking Wire Rings


Making your own jewellery really can be a simple as wrapping some gold or silver craft wire around your finger. Stacking up these hand-made spirals creates a on trend look that has it's own unique edge. 
Stacked and layered rings are the latest look - so I'm going to show you how to make a very cheap alternative that look great and are so easy to make. 



WHAT YOU NEED
Gold Craft Wire 1mm thick
Measuring Device
Nail File


001. Start by cutting a piece of wire around 10 inches long with your pliers. 
Use a nail file to sand down both ends until they are smooth to the touch.


002. Use something like this cooking spurtle or lipgloss tube, wooden spoon handle etc. 
Wrap the length of wire around in a smooth spiral.
The size can be determined by moving the wire up or down depending on your ring size.

003. Slide the spiral of wire off the measuring device. Using your pliers you can slightly bend the ends inwards. This means they won't catch on your clothing or hair.

004. Keep going, make lots of spirals so they can be stacked up together!




Wear your rings all stacked up together, one on each finger or just solo! They're surprisingly comfortable to wear too and don't restrict your hand movement at all.  If you liked this DIY please check out my others here. And let me know if you try this out yourself at home.
