Make A Ring Band Tool Kit

Make A Ring Band Tool Kit

This tool kit contains all the supplies you need to make your own sterling silver ring band! This is a great beginner metalsmithing project where you'll be able to understand the basics of soldering. Plus it has all the tools you'd likely need for most other projects where you will need to cut, solder and polish metal - that includes making earrings and pendants!

This project is in collaboration with Jordan Lily Designs, where she shared this step by step project on our tutorial page which you can follow along at home here.

This tutorial is for a 1.5mm ring made from round sterling silver wire, however the techniques are transferable to other wire sizes. This ring also has a gorgeous hammered texture, achieved with a repousse hammer but you can easily leave this step out to keep it plain or experiment with different jewellery hammers to add new textures. Wear solo for a minimalist feel, stack them high with other mix and match textures or go further and add a gorgeous gemstone to the band, the possibilities are endless!

In this tool kit, we’ve included 20cm of sterling silver 1.5mm wire so you can cut the required length you need and have plenty left over for another ring or to allow room for mistakes. You can work out how much wire you need by using the following equation: Inside Diameter (mm) + Metal Thickness (mm) x 3.14 = Ring Blank Length. As a rough guide - 6cm of 1.5mm wire should cover ring sizes M - O 1/2 (which means this kit gives you enough to make 3 rings for these sizes).

Find out your ring size by buying our ring sizer here.

With this tool kit, you can customise it to suit your needs and budget by either adding all the tools to your basket or by purchasing individual tools.
