At some point or another, every jewelry crafter, novice or experienced, considers making a gemstone ring. Many may feel it’s just too daunting a task, and give up on the idea before even getting started — but you don’t have to.

Whether your passion is beading, wire wrapping, or something in between, there is a pattern tutorial to fit just about any skill level and style preference.


Simple Wire Woven Adjustable Ring

This design by Gailavira Tutorials is a wonderful beginner project. Don't think this qualifies as a gemstone ring? If you use gemstone beads, it sure does. This is a great pattern with infinite design and bead possibilities. Using crystals or gemstones in a sew on type setting would add a whole new range of possibilities.
