You know when you really get in the zone and get carried away with making. I could not put this project down from the moment I started making it. These rings are so easy to make I kept thinking “just one more” each time I tried to give in for the evening. The result? I have so many rings now! More than I know what to do with. Any ideas?
Polymer Clay | Ring Mandrel | Craft Knife | Wire | Cutters | Flat nose pliers
Warm up the polymer clay and roll out the pieces between your hands. Make sure the tubes are smooth with no cracks. Cut in into half inch long pieces. Store these in the freezer while you make the wire rings.
Loop the wire around the ring mandrel and cut off the coil. Wrap it slightly smaller than the size of your finger as it will stretch out slightly.
Trim the wire into a circle and using the flat nose pliers open out the join into a U shape.
Fold the ends of the wire in towards the center of the U. Pull the U shape apart and gently push each end of the clay onto each end bringing the U back into shape. If the clay moves out of shape too much store the tubes in the fridge for longer.
Bake the clay according to your instructions and leave to cool in the oven with the door open. (I originally forgot this step! It’s a pretty important one if you don’t want floppy rings!! Thanks to Kat for reminding me in the comments :) )
When you can’t stop making these don’t say I didn’t warn you! If you want to learn more about making jewellery check out my ecourse Beads & Baubles right here!

I really want to make some of these. Your jewelry pieces are so good! And the photos are gorgeous.
Thank you so much Alexis! That means a lot coming from someone with such great taste :)
These are so pretty! And the styling feels nice to the eyes :) I’m interested to try this myself but I’m worried about the wire. Will it melt in the oven when baking, or is there a particular kind I need to use? Thank you.
Hey Weyn! Thank you :) I use copper wire which is fine in the over especially at the low temperatures polymer clay bakes at. Just make sure you leave them to cool fully before picking them up! xx
