Lace Ring

I created these rings to go with the lovely lace bracelets I made last week. Since the pattern is different, I decided to make a tutorial showing how to make it. It's very simple, I just worked in square stitch using seed beads size 11/0 and 15/0. I hope you enjoy it!


The only problem about these rings is that they may not be suitable for everyone. Each motif (one picot + circle in square stitch) you see in the ring measures about 9mm long.

Here are the materials I used to make them:

The turquoise/gold ring (the one I made in the video):
- Toho seed beads, 11/0, opaque luster cream (#123); store
- Toho seed beads, 11/0, opaque turquoise (#55); store
- Toho seed beads, 15/0, opaque turquoise (#55); store
- Toho seed beads, 15/0, permanent finish galvanized gold (#PF557); store
- Fireline thread, 4 lb (0.13 mm diameter), crystal;

The brown iris ring:
- Toho seed beads, 11/0, metallic iris brown (#83); store
- Toho seed beads, 15/0, metallic iris brown (#83); store
- *Fireline thread, 2LB (0.08mm diameter), black;

* I bought this thread by mistake. It's too thin. But it worked fine with the rings because they're  lightweight.

The black and pewter ring:
- Toho seed beads, 15/0, matte metallic pewter (#F451D); store
- Miyuki seed beads, 15/0, opaque black (#401); store
- Toho seed beads, 11/0, opaque jet (#49); store
- Toho seed beads, 11/0, transparent frosted crystal (#1F); store
- Fireline thread, 2LB (0.08mm diameter), black;

The lavander ring:
- Toho seed beads, 11/0, opaque amethyst (#52); store
- Toho seed beads, 11/0, milki kiwi (#1144); store
- Toho seed beads, 15/0, opaque amethyst (#52); store
- Toho seed beads, 15/0, gray lined crystal (#261);
- Fireline thread, 2LB (0.08mm diameter), black;
