Peyote Chain Ring

Hi everyone! There's a new tutorial on my Youtube channel: peyote rings with chains.


I've been working in these peyote rings since February when my Pinterest was flooded with images of peyote rings for valentine's day. I created one for myself (the black one), just the band, but a couple weeks ago I thought that I could do something different with it. Then I added the chains and I liked the result so much that I ended up making more rings and this tutorial for you.

The designs is quite simple, especially if you're familiar with peyote stitch. The part of adding the chain can be a bit tricky if you don't pay attention, though. It's important that when measuring the chain around the ring, you don't wrap it neither too tight nor too loose. And it's really important that you don't twist the chain while linking its ends to form the chain ring. If you let that happen, the chain will not lay flat around the ring and it will be a mess at the end when attaching it to the peyote band.


I used the software EasyBeadPatterns to draw the arrows and hearts you see in the rings. The software is free and you can use it to create different drawings in the ring, if you wish.

If you know peyote stitch and are good with diagrams, you don't have to watch the whole video, you may use the diagram below to create the ring band (I'm sorry the picture isn't larger, but it's the largest size you can get in the software):

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;

Violetta Ring

This lovely ring is a design by Peetje from the French blog "Le Blog de Peetje". The tutorial is free and you can find it here. It's not a beginner project. To make it you need to know how to do the circular peyote and flat odd count peyote stitch.

How I made the ring: first I made both flowers separately. Then I joined them with a thread, just passing through the beads in the base of both flowers. And finally I used the same thread to attach the pearl in the flower's center. To attach the flower to the ring base, I used E-6000 glue.

That's the result:




 
The materials I used:
- Delica beads 11/0, color: opaque luster beige (db0205);
- Delica beads 11/0, color: color-lined dark amber ( db0287);
- Toho seed beads 15/0, color: permanent finish starlight galvanized ;
- Swarovski pearl 6mm, bronze color;
- Toho one G thread, colors: beige (to the small flower) and brown (to the big flower);

Charlotte Ring

This ring is another design by Nunzia Scalpore. You can find the video tutorial here.

My first attempt to make this ring wasn't successful. I followed all the steps correctly but my ring wasn't round and nice as the ring in the video. The central part of the ring was like a dome and all the ring was a weird shape. So I undid the ring to try to do it again. I loosed my tension a little bit. And finally I got a ring rounded and stable just like the ring in the video!

The materials you'll need to make the ring:
- 3g seed beads 15/0 color A;
- 1g seed beads 15/0 color B;
- 24 rondelles 3x4mm;

Herringbone Ring Tutorial

To see the materials I used in the tutorial and more information, click HERE.


Herringbone Ring

I made this ring to show you how to do the flat herringbone stitch. It's a very simple pattern and you can finish your ring in less than 2 hours.

Before you start to create your own ring, I recommend you measure your finger with a thread or cord. So while you're making your ring, you can check the size comparing it with the thread or cord you used to measure your finger.

The materials you're gonna need to make the ring:

- 2g seed bead 11/0;
- 0.5g seed bead 15/0;
- 01 pearl 6mm;

Bracciale Joy and Anello Soraya

The bracelet and ring are all designed by Nunzia Scalpore. They are very easy and fast to make.

To make the bracelet you'll need: 8g of superduo beads and 2g of seed beads size 15/0. I make the hook clasp and rings with Parawire 18ga in quartz smoke color. You can watch the video tutorial for the bracelet here.




To make the ring you'll need 4g of superduo beads and 1g of seed beads size 15/0. To the ring I suggest you use a thin needle #12 because in the pattern you'll pass through the same seed bead 15/0 many times. You can watch the tutorial for the ring here.




And this is the set with the earring I talked in the previous post:

It's a good pattern for beginners and you can find the tutorial here.

The materials you'll need:
- 4g superduo beads;
- 2g seed beads size 15/0;

Casual Cocktail Ring

Few weeks ago I bought the digital edition of Favorite Bead Stitches magazine. It has a collection of selected patterns published on Beadwork Magazine until year 2010. They categorized the projects by stitches, what I think is wonderful for those who want learn a specific technique.

For continuing my learning in square stitch, I chose the project Casual Cocktail Ring from the magazine. My first piece using this technique was the Golden Zig-Zag Bracelet.

The ring is totally made using that stitch: the ring center is made with circular square stitch and the ring band is made with flat square stitch.

I had some problems to do the ring center in circular square stitch. In my first try, even following properly all the instructions, I got a ruffle round piece. It took me a few tries until I figure out how I should work to keep the circle flat.

First of all you can't keep your tension too tight. You need keep it a little bit loose (but not too loose!) to leave enough room to the beads sit side-by-side.

And the quantity of increases you'll make in each round will depend on the beads you are using. I used Delica beads 11/0 and Toho seed beads 11/0 in two different finishes. The Toho seed beads are very regular in shape and size, but you can notice a little difference between the size of seed beads with different finishes. I believe that's the reason of my piece became ruffle.

So, I made some adjustments in the original pattern by changing the amount of increases. And finally I got a perfect round and flat piece in circular square stitch. I was so happy with the result that I made a second ring.

The second ring was very quick to make. Once you get the hang of the circular square stitch it's easy to figure out when make the increases and keep it flat.

Here are some pictures of the rings:

Pearl Ring

This is another very simple ring, great to beginners.

The materials you'll need to make this ring:

1,5g - seed beads 11/0;
01 - 10mm round bead;
06 - 6mm round beads;
02 - 4mm round beads;
1m or 1yd approx. - nylon thread 0.25mm;

I didn't use needles in this project because the nylon thread is hard enough to pass through the beads alone. But if you decide use another kind of thread then you will need two needles.
