Triangle Zig Zag Ring

PROJECT R802
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Intermediate
This adjustable ring features a striking swatch of zig zag patterned peyote bead weaving in high contrast colors of black, blue, and white. Size 15/0 Delica seed beads were chosen to keep in line with the low profile of the ring and maintain its comfortability.
Instructions
This is an adjustable ring.
  1. To create the peyote strip for this ring, please watch the video: How to Flat Even-Count Peyote Stitch. You will also want to watch the video: How to Tie off and Add New Thread in Peyote Bead Weaving These two videos will teach you all you need to know to make your bead woven swatch.
  2. Please follow the directions in the videos and refer to the pattern on this project page to create your bead weaving. You will want to begin with 6 feet of thread on your needle.
  3. Once your bead weaving is complete, use E6000 glue to glue it to your ring base. You can see detailed instructions on how to do this in the video: How to Adhere Bead Weaving to a Channel Ring.
