Flower Ring

This is another ring for beginners. Although it's very easy to do, I'm not sure if it's so easy to explain. I'm editing the video tutorial and I hope it will be clear and easy to you understand.

The materials you'll need:
- 1.5g seed bead 11/0;
- 01 round bead 8mm;
- 10 bicone crystal 4mm;
- 18 round bead 3mm; * The quantity of the last item will vary according to the size of your finger.

Watch the tutorial HERE.

Beading Projects for the Weekend

For this weekend I want suggest two super easy and fast tutorials. They are: the Trinity Beaded Ring, designed by Aleshia from Beadifulnights channel; and the Earrings with Swarovski Bicones designed by Svetlana McDaniel.

The ring is very pretty. What I most liked in it was the ring band. It's stiff what gives more stability to the ring. I love that so much! I'll definitely use this ring band to other rings designs!

Now the earring, what I most liked was its size and shinny. It looks very gorgeous when you use it. In my version I used cheap bicone crystals because I did not have the required amount of Swarovski bicones to make it. But it still looks very beautiful.

The video tutorial for the earring is in Russian, but it has text with the instructions in English.

These are my versions of the Trinity Beaded Ring:

Four Corners Earring

This earring was published in Beadwork Magazine Aug/Sep 2013. It's designed by Michelle McEnroe.

My biggest challenge in this project was the choice of colors. I had to use beads in seven different colors to make the earring. It's the first time that I use more than four colors in a single project!

That's my version of the Four Corners earring:
