My Open Front Cuff Ring Tutorial

As promised, this blog post is just to show you my latest tutorial (click here to see the listing with all the detailed info).



The tutorial is called "Open Front Cuff Rings" and in the instructions I show you two different basic ways to make the rings... open and slightly adjustable... or with a stone (and not adjustable).  Within each of THOSE basic styles, there are still so many variations.  My template has several different shapes for the ring band itself... and then you can do other things to the metal to further design the ring in other directions (etching, rolling, hammer textures, stamping, saw-piercing, etc).

In the second part of the tutorial, I show you how to set stones on these ring shanks using pre-fabricated bezels.



Here's one without a stone, but I etched the metal first (you may want to check out my simple copper etching tutorial too).



So many variations to try!

The tutorial is a combination of thorough handout with lots of text and images (also links to supplies)... AND videos showing most of the processes.  You have access to the videos for life... there is no cut-off date.

You also get to join a private Facebook group for only customers of this tutorial where we share experiences, tips and tricks, inspiration, and more.

Check out these photos from some of my first customers of this tutorial.  These rings are amazing!
