Silvery Bubbles Ring

PROJECT R109
Designer: Andrea Morici
Skill Level: Intermediate
This impressive looking ring is especially stunning when paired with its matching bracelet of the same name.
Instructions
NOTE: The pieces listed in the ingredients above are estimates. The numbers will vary depending on your ring size.
  1. If you are not already familiar with peyote stitch, please watch our instructional video on flat even count peyote stitch before continuing. Thread about three yards of Fireline thread onto your needle (you may need to add on thread at some point). Add a stopper bead to the end, leaving about an eight inch tail.
  2. Thread on eight of the 15/0 Delicas. This is your first row as well as the first half of your second row. Complete ten rows* using the 15/0 Delicas. (*This is where you will adjust for your desired size of ring. Ten rows at each end will result in a size 7 1/2 ring. If you require your ring to be larger or smaller, add or omit rows as necessary during this step.)
  3. Complete the next four rows using 11/0 Delicas.
  4. Complete four more rows, this time using 10/0 Delicas.
  5. Complete four more rows, this time using 8/0 Czech seed beads.
  6. Coming to the crest of the first bubble, add only two rows of 6/0 Czech seed beads.
  7. Begin to reduce the bubble by following steps 3-5 in reverse.
  8. Complete the remaining ten (or the same amount as the beginning) rows using 15/0 Delicas.
  9. When you reach the end of your stitching, weave the two ends of your beadwork together to complete the circle. Weave your thread through several consecutive rows to secure the beadwork, tie a double overhand knot between two beads, and weave in the remainder of your thread. Trim off excess close to your work.
