Ring 101: Getting Started

Ring 101: Getting Started

Cost: $15 plus Materials

Length of Class: 1.5 Hours

Class Description:
We will be creating 3-5 rings using different gauges of wire. We will discuss tools and how to properly use a ring mandrel to get the correct size ring. The number of rings created depends on how fast the class moves. Some classes only make 3 with others made 5, depends on the rate of learning and if everyone has their own mandrel.  

NOTE: I prefer a  Steel Mandrel which you can get on Amazon over the ones sold at Michaels and Joanns. This way you can hammer on it. If you don't want to order-Michaels has an aluminum one that is better than the plastic ones Joanns sell (They are not 100% round but have a flattened back). Also Hobby Lobby has a smaller ring mandrel (does not make anything over a Size 10 I believe).
