Wire Rose Ring

This simple pink ring is an eye catching piece, while still being so fast and easy to assemble. 
Materials: 26 gauge wire, ring mandrel, bent nose pliers and wire cutters. 
Begin wrapping the wire around the mandrel, in the center of the wire. Make these first wraps about a size and a half larger that your actual ring size. Make four wraps to the base of the ring. 
To begin making the rose, twist the two pieces of wire together. 
Begin wrapping the wire around this center knot, wrapping underneath the last wrap. 
Continue wrapping one piece of wire at a time, alternating which piece you are using every few wraps. 
I find it helpful to start the rose off the mandrel, and then to put the ring back on for the last few wire wraps. When you have about 2" left of wire, make sure each piece is on the opposite side. Wrap the wire around the base of the ring three times. 
Trim the ends, and press them down with the pliers. 
All finished!
Xoxo, Alyssa
