What are you most proud of? I like the bright colors - I made my rings with a varigated crochet thread to match the beads so you don't notice the thread as much. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be patient - the beads tend to get in the way and make finding the single crochets hard to find. You can always use a larger hook I just happened to have a size 1 out at the time - if using the elastic thread instead of crochet cotton a size 5 was suggested. I think these rings would be great for little girls too but, I would use only 15 beads and of course make the ring's "band" shorter.
