My DIY | Wire Bow Ring

DIY PROJECT, Jewelry DIY

 My latest wire creation, I am officially bow obsessed! Steps after the break…

Supplies: 
Jewelry Pliers
Wire

Steps:
1. Start with 6″ of wire
2. In the middle create a loop to fit your finger, I wrapped around a chapstick tube to create a rounded circle.
3. With your round pliers, grab the top
4. Bend over the top of the pliers to create the right loop of the bow
5. Next grab the bottom wire
6. Bend over the top of the pliers to create the second loop
7. Adjust so your loops are even
6. Take the end of the left loop, and wrap around the center, through the ring
7. Trim the ends of the wire
* If the ends are sharp, file down to dull edges

  31. Hannah F says:

    Love it. Can’t wait to make my own. But can I use the 16 gauge wire that I used from your “heart beat” necklace???I still have some left.

  32. Emma says:

    This is really cute! I actually have one myself, cause I saw it at Make it & Fake a few months back. She used a thinner wire, but it is nice to know you have options 🙂

    This is MUCH harder than she makes it seem.. DO NOT attempt this if you have never made jewelry before.

      I definitely agree. I know my fiance will absolutely love the little bow ring and it’ll mean a lot more since I’m making it. But I’ve made 23 of the blasted little things and I can’t get them to turn out right. It all goes downhill on step 6. *sigh*

  61. Morgane says:

    It is awesomeee! I must try! I love it, it is really nice 🙂

  62. Kristina says:

    I’m a beginning DIY’er. I see that you have round nose needle pliers to form the piece, but what do you cut the excess wire with?

  63. With the designer handbags, you can change your looks and personality altogether and that too everyday.

    Thanks for the great idea. I’m getting married and I was looking for ideas for gifts for my bridesmaids to tell them “Thanks for helping me tie the knot”. I saw a Kate Spade Necklace that was in the shape of a bow for $78.oo, and with 6 bridesmaids that would add up to a lot of money and way beyond my budget. Now with your help I can make it on my own. Your creativity is such an inspiration. Keep up the amazing work!

  65. Your jewellery it’s so beautiful, I like it vey much, I also bought one at cheap omega watches
    , If you want one too. can visit this address, The backpacks are beautiful at there. I think you will be love it too.

    Aren’t the ends really sharp?

    1. fridaspeach says:

      You can take a small file (like a nail file) and give the sharp edges a go 🙂

  74. Kat Withers says:

    I’ve been dying for an adorable bow ring forever, so when I came across your tutorial today on Pinterest, I literally brewed a cuppa coffee, dropped what I was doing, grabbed my wire and set to work. This is the *most*precious* ring ever! I LOVE how it looks in bronze wire! Thank you so so much!!
