I learned to sew before I went to school. My mother, grandmother and aunt sewed everyday. I ran a needle through my right index finger early on, but have never done it again. I am self taught in many craft fields. My most recent is beadweaving. I think I have finally found my passion. I love the feel and look of tiny cylinder beads worked in peyote stitch into a wonderful mosaic of colorful design. Other beads and other stitches are interesting and lovely.,But beadwoven peyote is what I enjoy most.View all patterns by designer (30) »
Diamonds and turquoise come together on this ring. I have created this pattern with 3 sizes of rings. They all start out the same, the difference is in the last few rows of beading. You can decide which size you need by measuring the nearly completed ring around your finger. The middle size ring is about a US size 8 to 8 1/2 depending on the tightness of your stitching. Beaded rings form to your finger better than solid metal rings, so the size may be a little different than you wear in a metal ring. This ring is made using flat odd count peyote stitch. Then zip it closed, and enjoy. I love these colors together. Of course, you could use other colors if you want.
