DIY // Wire Wrapped Bow Ring

Wouldn’t it be a cute idea to create a wire wrapped bow ring? I actually love the idea, and today I’ll make one for my readers! Enjoy

What you’ll need:

If you like to order the Bow Ring DIY Package, which includes supplies for two rings please click here.

1. Bend the wire in the center around a Mandrel or round object like a Nail polish cap.

2. Your left wire should be aligned on the top.

3. Bend one of the ends (right one first) into a loop so that it forms half a bow.

4. Bend the other end into a complimentary loop.

5. Wrap the end of your last bow ” under and over” in the center to tighten the bows.

6. Clip the excess wire from the ends off the bow.

7. File each end so you don’t scratch yourself.

All done! Wasn’t that hard, what do you think? Let me know…comments are welcome!

    Great tutorial! I tried it out with aluminum and it worked great, but when I try with stiffer wire, I can’t quite get it. I don’t have much experience with hand forming wire, I usually use tools, any tips?

      Hi Theresa,
      You could try it with Round/Flat Nose Bending Pliers. But stiffer wire is less bendable and I am not sure if right for this project. Have you looked into a half hard wire, that should be easy enough to bend, and holds its shape.

    I love bows – wearing them, admiring them, and making them! Thank you so much for the detailed tutorial, I am SO making one (or two) :)

    Okay for one, I NEVER comment or give feedback for ANYTHING, but I’m doing it for this tutorial! I’m seriously beyond craft challenge, I suck at any DIY activity lol, but the way you explained everything was perfect! Thanks so much :]

    You make it look so easy! My favorite thing about this is how little you need to make this happen. That to me means it’s going to be affordable. So many projects these days require buying special tools! Great tutorial :)

    I made one of these the other day for a friend and she loved it! I really liked the fact that it was easy (and fast!) to make, and we both could not be happier with how it turned out. I made it a bit bigger, and it looked lovely.

    Hi there! This article couldn’t be written any better! Reading through this post reminds me of my previous roommate! He constantly kept preaching about this. I am going to forward this post to him. Pretty sure he’ll have a great read.

    hi, I’m really, really new to jewellery diy, and I would like to try out your bow ring and your wrapped peach aventurine ring. So I was wondering if there are any basic materials that I should buy, and if there is a particular gauge wire that I would use the most, because I don’t want to buy loads of different wires and beads that I’m only going to use once. My school has the tools and some wires so I can use their tools when needed. I’m on a low budget so they can’t be ridiculously expensive.
    Thank you!
