Wire Prong Ring Tutorial










My first tutorial is here!! :-)

This is a 39 page tutorial for a spiral-prongs ring made of wire. This is a high resolution image heavy file, so the file size is big. I have explained the process in steps, and each step has 1 or more pictures to explain it further.

There is no soldering involved. Here is a list of materials needed:

1)12 cm/4.7 inches of 18 gauge or 20 gauge round, dead soft wire.
2)60 cm/23.6 inches of 26 gauge dead soft round wire.
3)25mm x1 8 mm cabochon.
4)8 cm/3.1 inches 20 gauge half round wire – half hard for binding the ring shank at the bottom.
Or you can use 22 gauge round wire.
5)Masking tape.
6)Flat nose pliers.
7)Round nose pliers.
8)Chain nose pliers.
9)Ruler.
10)Ring mandrel.
11)Ring Sizer.
12)Polishing cloth.

If you have any problems in making this ring, please email me.

I will manually email the file to you within 24 hours of payment, but in case you do not receive the file within 24 hours, please email me.

Ok I have to try you tut! I have not tried a prong setting yet either. I have a friend who just inherited some stones and she was asking me about what she can do with them. This is exactly what I was wanting to show her. Thanks for posting!
