|Bead rings mixed with electric cable rings|
Shift dresses lend themselves to bright coloured summer jewelery. I keep making beaded bangles that I load up on my arms. Click here for the how-to.
I've made them with pearl beads, semi precious stones, wooden beads, hex nuts . . . .
|What you need to make the bead rings.|
|Load beads onto thread until it is long enough|
The rings here are made from single colour beads but you can alternate colours, or alternate beads with crystals. Maybe even use larger and smaller beads?
You need: -
- a ring that fits - in the pic you will see three electric cable rings I used to size my rings
- a ruler
- elastic thread
- small beads/seed beads
Wind the elastic thread around your ring and lie that piece flat against a ruler to see low long your piece of beaded elastic thread must be.
|Knot thread a few times and cut away excess thread|
Load up your beads onto your thread until you have the right length of beaded thread.
Wrap the beaded thread around your finger to check your ring fits. If too big, remove a bead or two, if too small, add a bead or two.
Tie a knot to secure the ends. Tie it at least two more times. Cut the excess thread.
I'm looking out for neon coloured beads so I can make more of these fun rings to stack on my fingers.
