Standard Form Ring (aka Pharaoh Ring) - PDF Tutorial

The Standard Form Ring (aka Pharaoh Ring) was designed by Thomas Vincent Phelan. He was issued a patent for the design (US Des. 150,726) in 1948. It came into the public domain in 1962. It is now considered one of the "classic" wirework designs. These instructions include a guide for making rings from sizes 6 - 12 1/2, and includes bonus instructions for two different ways of making a "comfort" setting!
