Metalsmiths! Do you make wire ring bands? Do you want to streamline your time at the bench? No more measuring! No more wrapping wire around your mandrel! Simply lay your wire along the size guide and mark where to trim—I've done all the size calculations for you!
This listing is for one  PDF:
• 18g, 16g, 14g, 12g and 10g [1.0mm, 1.3mm, 1.6mm, 2.1mm and 2.6mm] guide including full size markers, half size markers and quarter size markers.
Sheet size: 8.5" x 11"
This is a downloadable file. Template can be printed and used as many times as you wish. Once you purchase this listing you will have access to the file, and therefore can NOT be refunded or exchanged. This is a final sale.
After purchase is complete, follow the prompts to download your files.
Once you have downloaded the files, print them out at 100%. This is key! If you enlarge or reduce the file to "fit the page" the ring sizing will be incorrect. Each ring blank has size markers from US 1-14, as well as the gauge of wire it corresponds to. Print out and laminate if you wish. Clear packing tape works a treat, as well—that's what I did. Or, tape these to your bench where they're close at hand. When they wear out, clip out another one and start again.
*If you use my templates, I'd LOVE to see what you make! Don't forget to include a photo of your completed projects along with your feedback, or tag me on Instagram [@kristinbuhlerdesign]!
