I made this ring for a swap with one of the online jewelry groups I belong to. The theme was 'Back to School'. It was a tough theme, but I decided it reminded me of the turn of seasons from Summer to Fall.
I love the way the band on this ring turned out. I used a jump ring to start and folded the wires in half over it. I think I started with 3 groups of 3 wires (9 wires) of equal size in 26g silver. I put them through the jump ring and folded them in half. Then I braided them to the length I needed to make a size 7 ring. The braid came out really nice and neat.
