Intertwining Ring Tutorial by harlewood Intertwining Ring Tutorial by harlewood
How to make an intertwining ring.
The tutorial shows the wire twists in copper with the finished example in Sterling Silver. Copper wire is readily available without the cost of gold or silver. Your choice. :)
Take a look at the excellent work of these artists!

how long do you cut the wire? like how do you determine the wire you'd need for the size of the ring you need?

Best method to begin with is to use cheap copper wire to practice with and work out roughly what length you will need. You can then google (printable ring sizer) to calculate the length required once the twists are soldered together. Unfortunately this is a difficult project to take on unless you have some experience with jewelry making. Hope that helps you a little. :).

Hi, you cut through the twists with a jewellers saw so that they match up when curved around to form the ring then solder together. :)

I draw my own wire to whatever size I need, and as I am in Australia I can't really help with that. Sorry.

Would you be able to do this with 3 or 4 bands instead of 2? If so would you just alternate the wire (left, right) ?

Theoretically you could add more bands and yes you would have to alternate left and right to maintain the pattern. The hard part would be matching up the twists. :)
