This is what people said about the tutorial:

"I just loved this design, and decided I had to try it out, and for me this type of wrap is a new technique to me, and I love to learn new ways to use wires!
I was not disappointed and achieved a great result from this tutorial, despite having the completely wrong type of cab for this project. It is a bit too big, and flat, but the end result is very good, and I got it first time, due to detailed instruction, and great photos to follow along with. I cannot wait to make some more of these rings, with more suitable cabochons. Also despite having a large stone to wrap, the ring is extremely strong and stable,I have no fear of it coming loose, or loosing its shape etc. It really is a simple but impressive design, and looks very impressive to wear!
…Thank you for teaching me a new technique and for running such a great resource in this web site for us beginner jewellery makers. I cannot stay away!!!"

"Like all of Eni’s designs, this ring is just so sweet and elegant. I couldn’t wait to get the tutorial and try it out for myself! And what a joy! The pictures and the instructions are very easy to understand! I definitely had to practice a couple of times before I ended up with a finished product that I could be proud of, but that was only due to my own lack of experience and expertise. Once I got the feel for it, I was overjoyed with the results! I have made a few rings using this tutorial, and they are just as beautiful as the one in the picture! Yay!! I definitely recommend this tutorial if you are looking for an elegant way to make your square cabochons into sweet lovely rings."
