You may recall my first real piece of jewelry making! It required a ring of some sort and I tried any number of ideas.

Initially I bought a ring, about 1.5 inches in diameter, but didn’t like how it looked. Really, what I wanted was to make a ring. So I tried to cover the ring I’d bought a couple of different ways with beads. Both attempts looked horrendous. One was so bad it almost filled the ring which completely defeated its purpose in the project.

PeyoteRings2Not sure how I came across the idea of circular peyote but it was exactly the technique I needed for the job. Thanks to the amazing staff at White Fox Beads I was on my way. I had one false start with this technique because I did not have a good feel for how many beads would make what size ring. This image shows my first attempt next to the finished piece. I loved that first ring so much I couldn’t bear to take it apart so I made a second one and found just the right bead to finished size ratio.

Who knows, I might even get around to using the first beaded circular peyote ring in another project. I have an idea, and I’m fortunate that it is only one of so many 🙂 So, watch this space, just don’t hold your breath.

Till next time. Enjoy the process. J
