My Creative Workbook

Christine de Beer - effortless floral craftsman

Copper Wire Ring

Bend the wire to make the ring

Bend a section of wire (with a wide overlap on both sides) to the size of your ring

Curl ring ends

Curl the ends in to make sure the sharp sides will not hurt the wearer. This also creates a base to glue the plant material on to.

Echeveria ring

Glue the plant material or decorations to one loop only to make sure it can still be adjusted. Or glue two separate pieces on each side that comes together when the ring is slipped on.

Adjust the ring by bending it open for a larger fit and closed to have a smaller ring.
