Retired - Grape Crush Ring

PROJECT R112
Designer: Andrea Morici
Skill Level: Intermediate
This fashionable ring is comprised of a circular brick stitch bead-woven disk in champagne and grape colored seed beads, securely set in an oversized antiqued brass bezel ring.
Instructions
  1. If you are not already familiar with circular brick stitch, please watch our instructional video before proceeding. Thread your needle with approximately four feet of Fireline thread. Create your first row of the circular brick stitch using the purple Toho seed beads. Make your second row using the variegated taupe Delicas. Continue creating each row, alternating colors, until you have eight rows total.
  2. Tie off your thread and weave in the tail. Trim off any excess that you need to trim.
  3. Using a toothpick or a piece of scrap wire, spread a thin, even layer of E6000 adhesive in the bottom of the ring bezel. Be careful not to use too much, or it will squeeze through the beadwork.
  4. Carefully press your beadwork disk into the ring bezel, making sure that it is evenly and securely pressed into the adhesive.
  5. Set your ring aside to dry for a few hours before wearing.
