Supplies needed to make this simple beaded ring:
How to make the beaded ring:
Step 1: Make the first basic beaded unit
1st, cut about 160cm fishing wire, slide a 2mm golden seed bead to the 20cm position of the wire, then cross both wire ends through a 6mm red jade bead;
2nd, cross both fishing wire ends through a 2mm golden seed bead, then separate the wires and then add 6 seed beads to each of the wires like picture shows;
3rd, tie both wire ends to make a knot and cut off the shorter wire.
Step 2: Complete one half of the beaded ring patterns
1st, slide a red jade bead and a golden seed bead to the fishing wire, cross the wire back through the jade bead and the seed bead on previous bead unit;
2nd, add more golden seed beads to cover the red jade bead, cross the wire through previous seed beads to fix the second bead unit;
3rd, slide 11 golden seed beads onto the fishing wire, thread the wire through the previous two bead units to make a seed bead loop;
4th, add a jade bead to the wire, put the jade bead to the middle of the seed bead loop, and then thread the wire through the surrounding seed beads.
Step 3: Make the ring base
1st, add 3 golden seed beads to the wire, cross the wire through the next seed bead to make those 3 seed beads form a tiny triangle;
2nd, keep crossing the wire back through previous seed beads until the wire gets to the middle of previous two bead units;
3rd, slide 16 3mm golden acrylic beads to the wire to make the ring base (here the number of the acrylic beads depends on the size of your finger);
4th, add a golden seed bead, a red jade bead, and another golden seed bead to the wire, and thread the wire back to the first golden seed bead like the forth picture shows;
5th, add more seed beads to the wire to cover the jade bead.
Step 4: Make the other half of the beaded ring patterns
1st, add a jade bead and a seed bead to the wire, then cross the wire back through the jade bead and a seed bead on previous bead unit;
2nd, slide about 5 seed beads to the wire to cover one half of the jade bead;
3rd, add more seed beads to cover the whole jade bead, then slide about 12 seed beads to the wire to make a seed bead loop;
4th, slide a jade bead to the wire and put the jade bead to the middle of the seed bead loop, cross the wire back through the jade bead and add 3 more seed beads to form a tiny triangle like the picture shows, then cross the wire through previous seed beads to connect 2 half beaded patterns together;
Step 5: Complete the beaded ring
Cross the wire through the bead patterns several times, tighten two bead patterns together, make a knot and cut off extra wire.
Here comes the finial look of this beaded cuff ring:
Wow! What a pretty jade bead ring! Don’t you want to make one? As you can see from this tutorial, it’s not so difficult to make this ring, all you need to do is connect the beads together and mind the number and arrangement of beads. If you really like it, just give it a try!
