Evangelina Ring with Elvira Lopez del Prado

In this class, Elvira combines her two favorite mediums – copper wire and polymer clay – to make an organic, intricate ring!

While it may appear a bit complex, you do not need to have advanced jewelry skills to make this piece, and Elvira breaks out this project in three easy-to-follow parts:
  • First you'll make the small flowers out of polymer clay, building them from the inside out, including the detailed stamens.
  • Next you'll start the weaving process, which gives this piece such a distinctive look!
  • Last, you'll shape your ring, adjust your flowers, and enjoy wearing your beautiful piece of jewelry!
There are endless variations and so many ways to transform this project into your own!

Adjustable Duet Ring with Wyatt White

Once you make this simply designed ring, you'll want to make another... and another...

This adjustable ring is inspired by the Soumak technique, originally used to create intricate patterning in tapestries and rugs. To mimic this effect, Wyatt shows you how to wrap a small wire around a larger base wire, creating the uniquely textured band.

Whether you contrast your wires or not is up to you! As you can see, each variation produces its own striking result, and these are just the tip of the iceberg. Create some great bling for your finger with this simple yet elegant design!
