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!

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. :)

Well I received the wire I ordered today, however they sent me 20gauge instead of the 16gauge I had ordered -.-' So sadly I have to wait for the replacement to get here now.

Try some copper wire first, thinner and thicker will work. If you can buy a small section of electrical wire (hardware store or scrap metal dealer) and strip out the thick solid copper its so much cheaper than silver to practice with. Don't try cutting some out of the household wiring though. :)

Any tips on getting the 4 different strands to line up better/properly?
