This handsome ring is a great way to show off a single bead. Rings take a lot of abuse — so work with your stretch cord doubled!
The size of the ring can be easily adjusted by adding more or less daisy spacers when threading the beads. Remember to keep it even and put the same number on each side. The instructions below make a ring that is approximately a size 8.
Thread your stretchy cord through the wire needle and slide the needle to the center of the cord. Thread the beads in the following order:
Check the size of the ring against your finger. Adjust as necessary by adding or removing spacer beads from both sides.
When you have the size right, snug the cord up tightly so that the knot will disappear after being tied. Tie a surgeon’s knot to secure the cord.
Wiggle the knot into the focal bead to hide it.
That’s it. Very quick and simple! In half an hour, you have a very cool beaded ring that is comfortable to wear and fun to show off!
