Forming Filigree - Option 3

Step 1

Choose a longer filigree piece to curve into a small ring using either Wrap and Tap pliers or a mandrel.

Step 2

Place the center of the filigree in the pliers. The further back the filigree is on the pliers, the larger the diameter of the ring will be.

Step 3

Squeeze the pliers and use your fingers to push the sides of the filigree down against the pliers.

Step 4

Completely form the filigree to the pliers.

Step 5

You now have an adjustable filigree ring.
