DIY wire ring

For this project, you can choose the size of your wire and stones. If you choose a wider gauge wire, you should choose a larger stone to go in the center.

Make a DIY wire ring

Measure and cut

To begin, cut a piece of wire equal in length to the size of your ring circumference plus 1 centimeter (½ an inch).

Easy wire ring


Use round-nosed pliers to make a small loop on either end of the wire.

How to make a wire ring


Wrap the wire around something narrow and cylindrical to create a smooth, round shape.

Use chain nosed pliers to bend the loops upward, so they are parallel with each other.

The height of the bend should equal the radius of the stone.

Attach stone

Cut a second piece of wire 5 centimeters (2 inches) in length. Run the wire through one loop on the ring, through the hole in the center of the stone, and then through the second loop.



Twist the wire downwards on either side of the ring.

Then pull the wire through the ring, and twist it upwards.

With round nosed pliers, twist the tops of the wires into loops.

Use chain nosed pliers to twist the loops further around and down beside the stone.

Aren’t they beautiful? Have fun trying different gauges and motifs.

    Not sure I have that exact gauge of wire. Guess I will have to find out if it works with 26 or 28 gauge.

    Any suggestions?

      For round making ring, you need large diameter wire to ensure the hardness of the ring.

      and with wire to pierce beads, you can use any size of wire, as long as it can hold the stone in place.
