How to make a snake ring out of wire?

Making a snake ring out of wire can be a fun and creative project that allows you to customize the design to your liking. Here's a basic tutorial on how to make a simple wire snake ring:


  • Jewelry wire (18 or 20 gauge)
  • Wire cutters
  • Round-nose pliers
  • Flat-nose pliers


  1. Cut a piece of wire that is approximately 1 foot long.
  2. Using your round-nose pliers, create a loop at one end of the wire.
  3. With your flat-nose pliers, bend the wire at a 90-degree angle just above the loop you created.
  4. Using your round-nose pliers, create a small loop at the end of the wire that is perpendicular to the first loop.
  5. Continue bending the wire back and forth in a zigzag pattern, creating a series of loops that get gradually smaller.
  6. Once you have reached the desired length for your ring, use your flat-nose pliers to create a loop at the end of the wire that is perpendicular to the last zigzag.
  7. Wrap the remaining wire around the base of the loop to secure it in place.
  8. Using your flat-nose pliers, gently shape the zigzag pattern into a snake-like shape.
  9. Place the ring on your finger and adjust the size and shape as needed.

Note: This is just a basic tutorial and there are many different ways to make a wire snake ring. You can experiment with different wire gauges, colors, and textures, and add embellishments such as beads or gemstones to create a unique and personalized piece of jewelry.
