I made these 3 rings today.
I was inspired bu my daughter, Isabella after she
expressed how excited she was when I told her
I wanted to make something for her. She asked if I could make her wedding ring. She is 10, lol, isnt she darling? These are my first rings I ever made.

    Fabulous! What gauge wire are you using? Would love a video as I am definitely more of a visual learner. I’m inspired!
