I'm sorry, we did not optimize it for printers :( Try to download it, and then 'cut' it into 2-3 pieces before printing.

This is very helpful - thank you! And I don't have a ring mandrel/gauge, and I always wondered what to use. So lip balm container. I never would have thought of that! Thanks again for sharing your knowledge. :)

Nice tutorial! Do you have a way of smoothing the ends of the wire? Or aren't they sharp enough to be uncomfortable?

You can get some cheap metal files, I think I got a pack of 10 for under 5 pounds and they last forever. I was using a nail file at first but they're really not great for metal.

Hmmm.... nem is tudtam hogy a hegesztésnél(mig), ill. transzformátorgyártásnál használt zománcozott huzalokból is ilyen ötletes ékszer készíthető.

bodaszilvia Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2013  Professional Artisan Crafter
háááát... zománcozottból nem biztos, hogy jó a gyűrű, mert a zománcok előbb-utóbb kopnak, gyűrűhöz inkább a csupasz rezet javasolnám :)

Az igaz, próbál ki a lágy(cink-ón,elektronikai), ill. kemény(ezüst,klímatechnikai) forrasztást is.
Igaz, inkább műtárgyak,és szobroknál alkalmazható.
Hátha neked is kisül valami. De először keress rá a forrasztási technikákra, aztán gyakorolj.

Ui.:Mindig kel egy ki változatosság.:)
