Finally, we had some time to publish the tut and we promised our friends from Handmade Jewelry Club Fanpage that we’re going to teach them how to create the ring. Well, the wait is over! Gather some seed beads, beading thread and a focal bead of your choice and follow the steps how to create your own Rainbow Ring!
The ring may look simple but the summarized steps is one of the basic way if you want to embellish or surround and beadweave around a focal bead.
Step 2: On your right thread, slide in several wooden beads. In this tutorial, we used 7 (3mm dia.) seed beads for a 1cm dia. focal bead. Bring the thread with the wooden beads in counter-clockwise direction back thru the focal bead then pull your thread.
Step 5: After sliding in 1 wooden bead, continuously insert the same thread back thru the wooden beads on your left side. When you reach the very last bead slide in 1 more wooden bead and insert the thread all the way around the right wooden beads again until you have both thread in upright position.
Step 6: Now that you have both of your threads in upright position we’ll start to weave the ring band. Using RAW or right angle weaving technique, cross your left thread and insert into the first two wooden beads. Like shown in this picture, slide in 3 seed beads on both of the threads. To crisscross the threads, slide 3 more seed beads and then pull your thread.
