Coming Up Daisies
Coming up daisies is easy with this beaded ring pattern. Easy to make, fun and colorful to wear, these beaded rings bring a dose of spring to your style.
What You'll Need:
- 12 inches of stretchy beading cord
- 10 green seed beads
- 40 to 50 seed beads in a variety of colors
- 1 small gold-tone crimp bead
- Needle-nose pliers
Step 1: Tie a knot two inches from one end of the stretchy beading cord. Thread the other end of the cord through a needle.
Step 2: To make a daisy, string on one green seed bead and then six seed beads of a different color, such as red. Pass the needle back through the first red bead to make a circle. Then thread a seed bead of another color onto the beading cord, and place it in the center of the seed bead circle. Pass your needle through the third red seed bead, and pull gently.
Step 3: Now that you've made one daisy, you can just repeat step 2 using different colors. Don't forget to thread on one green seed bead before you start another daisy. You'll probably need five or six more daisies to make the ring, depending on the size of your finger.
Step 4: Once you've finished your last daisy, string on one more green seed bead, then pull both ends of the cord through the crimp bead. Use your needle-nose pliers to close the crimp bead around the cord, and trim the ends.
