Bluestar Ring

PROJECT R2014
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Advanced
Get lost in the cool blue of the Bluestar Ring. The fun Czech Glass Pip beads surround a Lunasoft Glowing Cabochon with a beaded bezel.
Instructions
You will also need a toothpick or scrap of wire to apply the glue.
  1. Please watch our video: How to Hide an Earring Post in Bead Embroidery. You will use this same technique to hide the pad of the ring finding. Cut a very small slit in the Ultra Suede to fit the ring pad through.
  2. Next you will glue the cabochon onto the Ultra Suede using Crafter's Pick glue.
  3. Once the glue has dried, trim the Ultra Suede.
  4. For the next part please watch our video: How to Weave a Basic Beaded Bezel.
  5. Following what you learned in the video, pick up 48 11/0 beads.
  6. The first, second and third row (moving from the side towards the top) you will use 11/0 beads. Then complete one row with 15/0 beads.
  7. Weave your thread back to the first row and for the next row, use the pip beads.
  8. Moving towards the bottom, the next row, use 15/0 beads.
  9. For the next two rows, you will use 11/0 beads.
  10. And for the final two rows on the bottom you will use 15/0 beads.
  11. When you have come to the end tie off and weave in your thread.
  12. All done!
