February 2007 Beaded Crystal Ring Project

You can find a variety of Free Arts and Craft Project here, including beaded project and other project. This month, I would like to feature the instruction on a elegance beaded crystal ring made with glass seed beads and Swarovski crystals that you can make for yourself or your love ones.

Crystal Ring

The pictorials are illustrated with spaces between beads for a clearer direction, in the actual beading, there should be no spaces.

Beaded Crystal Ring

What you need:

1)    4mm Swarovski crystals (around 10 pieces - depend on size of ring)
2)    Black seed bead (11/0)
3)    Beading string.

Always pull tight on every step!

Step 1:
  • Cut one piece of string around 3/4 meter long.

    Add one crystal, five seed beads, crisscross the other end of the string through the last added bead.
    Make sure your piece is at the very center of the string.
Step 2:
  • Continue by:
    Add one crystal on the right string (black);
    Add four seed beads on the left string (blue) and pass the opposite end of the string through the last added bead.

    Add one crystal on the left string (black);
    Add four seed beads on the right string (blue) and pass the opposite end of the string through the last added bead.

As you have realized you are adding crystals once on the left and once on the right.
Keep repeating this step until you reached the length of the ring you need (measure around a ring size or your own finger).

Step 3:
  • Joining up the ring!

The top is where you started off in step 1.
The bottom is where your beading is at right now.

On the right add a crystal, on the left add only three beads instead of the usual four.
Crisscross both string through the first bead from step 1 in opposite directions shown where the arrows are coming out from.
Note: if you have already done the four beads and closed off, just simply remove one bead from the closing off and do the joining.

Pass the strings further up where they can meet head to head and tie off, for a stronger piece I would suggest that after you tie off, loop and pass the threads further through the piece (no specific order) before cutting away excess.

You can make a matching bracelet too.
