Now place the ring back on the mandrel and beat with a rawhide mallet to finish shaping and sizing. Remember, too much hammering will cause the ring become fragile and break, especially using thinner wire, so be careful!
And there you go, you have a nice, simple ring.
Here are ideas you can do, too. Go ahead and experiment with different gauges of wire and try making other pieces of jewelry. Have fun with the idea, try different gauges like 14 and smaller, or wire on some beads for decoration. I thought it was pretty cool.
