Wire Wrapped and Handforged Rings - My first attempt in Copper and Gold Filled

I have finally bought ring mandrel! Yay :) So here are my first attempts at making wire wrapped rings. The first one is classical spiral ring in Gold Filled.


The second one is an improvisation of the spiral ring. I tried to make a Rose in copper :)


The third one is a very simple adjustable triple band men's ring in Gold Filled. The ring has been hammered for texture.


I've also made a couple of rings that are more complicated and have Gemstones incorporated in them. I'll be posting pictures here very soon :) So stay tuned...

Lovely job. I've tried rings and just don't seem to have the knack. I'd love to see the ones with stones.

WOW! Absolutely amazing rings! Gonna run to learn wire jewelry LOL
Are they going to appear on Etsy or somewhere else for sale?

Lovely! I got a mandrel a few months ago, and I wanted to try some rings like this. I don't think mine would be this good at the first attempt though.

WOW! Thank you so much all :) You spoil me ladies!

and I don't know, Yulia if I'm gonna put these ones for sale... The more complicated rings, sure thing but these... I haven't decided yet :)

I especially like the copper rose, I think it came out very well. I'll have to check back and see what you do with gemstones.
