Circle Rings, DIY

Everyone that is really close to me knows that I am obsessed with circles, 
and now all of you know it too. 
When I was little I was drawn to circles and anything sphere shaped or round.
 It hasn't changed a bit since I became an adult, I am still obsessed.
 These cute little circle rings are made with an over sized jump rings 
or a circle of some sort and a little silver wire.




Tutorial
Things you need.
  1. Wire 20 gauge sliver* Michael's
  2. Large jump rings or anything you have that is round* Michael's
  3. Pliers 
  4. Candle

 Cut your wire about 6 inches
 Wrap one end of the wire around the jump ring,* I covered where the jump ring meets*.
This might take a little practice but once you do it one or two times, it becomes easier.
 Wrap the wire around your candle to get the shape and size you need
 experiment to see what the perfect size is for you.
 now wrap the other end of the wire around the jump ring.
Trim the excess wire 
make sure it matches the other side on how many times it wraps around.
On this ring mine wrapped around 4 times.



 Now go to town,
They make great little gifts for a friend.
CIRCLE (sun disc, sacred hoop, ring): An ancient and universal symbol of unity, wholeness, infinity, the goddess, female power, and the sun. To earth-centered religions throughout history as well as to many contemporary pagans, it represents the feminine spirit or force, the cosmos or a spiritualized Mother Earth, and a sacred space.






Have a great Thursday.
Lots of <3,
