DIY Beading: Beaded Ring

Another early Christmas gift for you guys - DIY Beading Project: Beaded Ring! 🙂 Like what I shared on our Facebook Fanpage. when my Twin Beads arrived I find the Iris Teal color so beautiful. I couldn't wait to get my hands on it and together with some 11/0 seed beads,immediately tried to create a beaded jewelry. I was trying to create an entirely different piece using the Square Stitch but this beaded ring just popped into the picture 🙂  I find it so cute and so I thought of sharing the tutorial 🙂 I suggest you use Fireline or Wildfire thread. Stiffer thread will help to keep the circular shape of the beadwork. Also prepare approximately 12.5mm pearl. Here goes...   Step 1:Pick up a twin bead, seed bead and twin bead.   Make a turn and go left. Pass the lower hole of the last twin bead strung, pick up a seed bead and pass the lower hole of 1st twin bead .    Make a turn, go right and pass through the upper holes and seed bead then pull the thread.   Step 2:String the following beads and pass the thread as shown on the image.   Make a turn, go right and pass the thread into the upper holes and seed bead. Pull the thread.   Step 3:Repeat Step 2 until you have 11 twin beads and seed beads.  Step 4:After stringing the last 2 seed beads, make a turn and pass the previous twin bead and out again the seed bead. Now you have a strip of twin and seed beads.   Step 5:Form a circle. Connect the last seed beads and the 1st twin bead.   Pass the thread into twin bead and seed beads as you did in creating the strip and pull the thread tight.      Step 6:Drop your pearl inside. Pass the thread into the pearl and out the other side. Secure your pearl. Travel back through several beads until you find a way to pass back through the pearl again.   [showmyads]   Step 7:After you have secured your pearl you are ready to create the ring band. Have your thread come out a seed bead. Pick up 4 seed beads. Skip the twin bead and pass the thread into the next seed bead.   Then travel through several beads, and twin beads and then come out the seed bead where you started. Continue to pass the first 2 seed beads you just strung.  Step 8:Build your ring band. Pick up 2 seed beads and pass the thread into the previous 2 seed beads. Come out the 1st new bead strung. Pull the thread.  Repeat previous step and this is how it should look like. Build your ring band until you reach your desired length.  Step 9:To finish the ring band, when you reach your desired length, connect the seed beads to the other side. Secure your thread, make knots and then cut off the excess.  Voila! You have a ring 🙂    ...and look here 🙂 I quickly created a pair of earrings! 😀 Try it and have fun combining colors. Be vibrant, or be subtle, or simply just have fun 🙂 Have a great diy beading weekend guys!  Copyright 2013www.diybeadingclub.comwww.diylessons.orgwww.handmade-jewelry-club.com Subscribe to HJC to stay updated with jewelry making news!
