- Jewelry pliers (round nose, flat nose, wire cutters)
1) Study this diagram (this is an exaggerated version of what the rings should look like laying flat):
2) Cut a length of the wire (it should be the circumference of your finger...and then some)
3) Find the middle:
4) Fold the wire in half (this can be done by hand, but you can use your pliers to help you shape it):
5) Shape this portion around a cylindrical object (like Chapstick or a glue stick):
6) Make a "V" shape and...
7) Tuck the corners in so the wire isn't scratchy and pokey (combination of round nose and flat nose) (trim the wire if necessary)
8) For the other ring, repeat steps 2-5.
9) Bend the two ends downward, instead of the "V."
10) Loop them back up around your round-nose pliers. It should look kind of like a heart almost.
11) Repeat step 7. This is your 3 symbol!
Voilà! If you're forever alone like me, you can wear the 2 rings together like so:
Or separately for ultimate geeky-couple cuteness (this later). Ideally, one ring should be worn regularly, the other as an upper finger ring, so when hands are held, the rings should line up.
