3 Ways to make rings with seed beads
These rings are easy to make yourself. You can make a full set, with just 3 different techniques!
Let's start with the ring and the charm:
Cut the elastic a lot bigger than your finger, this way threading the beads and knotting everything together will be easier. Start with a spacer bead so you can hide the knot at the end. After the spacer bead, thread 4 seed beads and another spacer bead. Repeat this again. Now, thread 2 seed beads and then the charm. Use another 2 seed beads, this way the charm will be in the middle. Use another spacer bead and 4 seed beads, repeat again. For the last part u only use 1 color and now you measure how many beads u will need to fit your finger. When u think the ring will fit, just make a double knot and some jewelry glue. Hide the Knot in the speacer bead and you finished!
For the 3 other rings with seed beads u use the same techniek, but now without the charm or spacer beads.
The ring with the chain:
For this ring we start by using a headpin and threading the beads on there. Here we used 3 faceted beads and 2 spacer beads. Cut the headpin, but make sure u leave enough space to make 2 eyes at both sides. Measure how long the chain needs to be and cut to size (it's better to cut it too long than too short!). Open the both eyes of the headpin and attache the chain. Close them and you finished!
