I did not start creating jewelry in the beginning. I started working with beads because I wanted to bead a pair of shoes in the style of the Peranakan (Malay and Chinese mix heritage) women who live in the South East Asian region. They have the most beautiful colors and designs and I wanted a pair of my own. Once I made the first pair, then a second, then a third. Then I discovered other kinds of beads and other methods of putting the beads together. You can say from then on there was no stopping me.View all patterns by designer (77) »
What can I say? I love rings, the bigger the better. The more unusual the better.
My Rather Large Cocktail Ring answers my predilection for these rings. Using gumdrops, pearls and Twin or Superduo beads, the ring is built from a series of netting around the pearls. The gumdrops are incorporated into this netting and form a round of "points". The ring is completely self-supporting. The inside is hollow and the structure is built from by netting over beads.
This ring is great for those who like to make a statement with their hands. It is big and depending on the color can be very in your face. Make one in elegant golds and silvers. Or make one with the latest neon beads for that fun occasion. However you make them, definitely one will not be enough.
