Retired - Victorian Stunner

PROJECT R602
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Beginner
An impressive Victorian-inspired adjustable filigree ring with a stunning Swarovski crystal rivoli in the center. Easy to make and gorgeous to wear.
Instructions
  1. If you do not already know your ring size, measure it using a ring sizer or go to a jewelry store and ask them to measure your finger. There is usually no charge for this. This ring is adjustable, so you will have some room to work with.
  2. Find the corresponding number on the ring mandrel as your ring size. Line the mid point of the filigree width with that number on the mandrel. Using the pressure of your fingers, mold the filigree around the mandrel to form the ring.
  3. Place your Swarovski rivoli in the center of your bead cap and press the bead cap petals around the crystal, making a setting.
  4. Cut 6" of 26 gauge wire. Fold in half. Going from the underside of the ring, thread the wire through two adjacent holes in the middle of the ring. Pull through to the other side (the top side). Thread one end of wire through the bottom of your Swarovski bead cap setting and pull out the other side, do the same with the other end of wire but come from the opposite side. Pull snug so that the crystal setting is tight against the top of the filigree. If you want to add a little stability, loop each end of wire in and out several underside filigree holes, just make sure your wire ends come out the top and do not do more then one or two of these securings.
  5. Now take one end of wire and wind it around the base of your bead cap setting until you run out of wire. Do the same with the other end of wire, but wind in the opposite direction.
