Coiled Key Ring
Great for Dads and Grads


  • 1 Large Resin Bead
  • 4" 14 g Sterling Wire
  • 18" 18g Copper or Silver Wire
  • 3 1/2' 20g Silver Wire
  • 1 Charm
  • 1 Key Ring
  • 1 Key Ring Swivel
  • Tools

  • Coiling Gizmo
  • Round Nose Plier
  • Chain Nose Plier
  • Wire Cutter
  • Step One

    Set up the coiling gizmo according to the instructions included in the box.
    We will only be using the smaller Mandrel on this project.

    Step Two

    Anchor the 20g wire to the smaller Mandrel

    Step Three

    Wind the wire around the Mandrel until you have 4" of coiled wire.

    Step Four

    Remove the 4" of coiled wire from the Mandrel and trim off any excess wire ends. Both ends of the coiled wire should appear as they do in the photo on the right.

    Step Five

    Anchor the 18g wire to the Mandrel and wind 6 times around and slide on 4" coil..

    Step Six

    Continue to wind the 4" coil onto the Mandrel until you have six turns of coil left.

    Step Seven

    Glide the twisted coil off the Mandrel and trim excess wire. Open the coil up by winding counter clockwise.

    Step Eight

    Slide one side on the coil end onto the 14g wire, place the bead in the center of coil and thread the 14g wire through the ball and out the outer end of the coil.

    Step Nine

    Play with the coil around the bead until you achieve the desired look and make a loop on each end of the wire.

    Step Ten

    Open loop gently to the side and add a charm on one side and the key ring with swivel to the other side.
