Medieval Inspired Gemstone Ring Tutorial View

I love old antique rings they have so much detail and interest.   The medieval period loved thicker metal around the stone and often had accent stones at the very edge of the metal work.   I am not claiming this as a reproduction piece just a ring that reminds me of that period in time.   I do quite a few medieval and Ren fairs and designs like this one and The Dragons Eye Ring are always very popular.    If you do not want to use a gemstone and setting you could swap this for a bead or swarovski sew-on element.

0.4mm or 26 guage round wire

Quick Make – Bunny Ear Ring View

The Bunny Ear Ring is super useful, the same setting can set a rivoli, a triangular element or even an rough edged gemstone.  I like to take these empty to a show and people can pick their own gem to put in it, its a great fun draw at shows.

It takes minutes to make and only uses 1mm or 20 gauge wire.  Super easy! Quick! and Fun!


Hope you love it

This ring is so simple and yet super popular.  Can be made so fast the tutorial is only 5 mins in length.  I find this ring a great little seller at craft fairs.  To market ( so people know what they are)  I slip the twin wires over a card with a cat face drawn on the card just makes it a little more obvious and looks super cute.


  • 1mm or 18 gauge round wire

Hope you enjoy this fun free make!

Tiny Stone Adjustable Ring Tutorial View

Adjustable Rings are a great item to have. Whether you are selling or making gifts a ring is always tricky.  When selling your customers finger sizes differ so much that you either have to make commissions, ordered to fit or make several rings that all look the same.  Gifts are even worse you can wrap up three rings and say hey take whichever fits.  If you make it too big the person getting the gift thinks you thought they were bigger and if you make it too small they feel bad because they are bigger.  Its a bad place to be.


Not only are they great for differing sizes but also people who have swollen knuckles due to circulation or arthritis issues, it gives the ring more space to get round the knuckle.

This tutorial also demonstrates how to set a small gemstone, the correct way up!  Many of these type settings place the flat top of the stone downwards.  I will shoe you have to place your stone the right way up and hold it firmly in place without the use of a pre-bought setting.


  • 21 Gauge dead soft square wire
  • 18 / 21 Gauge half hard half round wire
  • Small faceted Gemstone I used a 4mm stone.
