Version two of the folded ring for a pearl

This folded pearl ring is a great ring to make out of a flat plate of metal and one piece of wire. Not only is the design modern, but it is versatile too. It can be modified to fit a bezel set gemstone, or to split the ends to create 'V' shaped arms for a variation in the shank design. Particular attention on the folding method and bending of the shank without kinking the metal. In this tutorial I made both the rings shown. This tutorial includes the template used to make this ring.
