  • Solid circles

    Can anyone tell me where i can get solid circle of silver wire? Reasonably thick. All sizes, but preferably large for large pendants.

      Bit puzzled, are you talking about something to use as a bezel? To me a solid circle is a jump ring!

        Lol i guess it could be a jump ring but it needs to much bigger. Do they come in larger sizes? I guess im after something a bit more......fancy than a jump ring. About 5cm diameter ish.

          I just had to look up what a bezel was lol. Its not what im after i dont htink. I dont want to set any stones in it.

          All i need is a round bit of thick wire. I know i could probably make it myself but it needs to be thick and solid and strong to wind wire around it and im not too good at getting perfectly round circles of wire anyway. I also dont have very thick wire.

              Its not to hard to make them. Just wrap the wire round anything I use steel rods but felt tip pens are good, make sure you wrap it round till it overlaps then cut it clean with a saw or dremel with a cutting disk

                Are you planing on wrapping the wire across the out side of the ring or around the wire that forms the circle?
                At 5cm you could look at curtain rings as an alternative.

                  I wanted a solid ring, but if i make my own il need to wrap it and just make a loop on the top to add the chain to. Its for making pendants.

                  I guess you wouldnt see the ring as i want to wrap wire. So curtain rings might work!

                        Always think out side the box you never know what might come in handy. trawl the diy sections for little unusual things to use.
