Dream in Green Ring Instructions
Designed by Cheri Carlson

A pear fancy stone featuring the Royal Green Shiny Lacquer effect takes center stage in this peyote stitch ring! The lush green color of the stone really stands out against the rose gold and champagne seed beads. This fancy stone is part of the Swarovski Innovations for Fall/Winter 2017-18. Find more Innovations and other inspiring jewelry designs here.

Step one:
Follow the instructions for making an open back peyote stitch bezel as outlined in this tutorial. Use 64 Miyuki 11/0 galvanized semi-matte champagne Delicas to start your first row. Form a circle with the thread and knot in place. Add another row of 11/0 Delicas using the techniques in the tutorial. You will now have three rows.

Step two:
Add one row of TOHO 15/0 bead rounds in galvanized rose gold to the peyote stitch bezel. This will be the top of the ring bezel. When you get to the end of the row, pinch the circle to form a "V" and skip adding the last bead. Instead, just run your thread through the next Delica. The "V" shape will not really hold at this point but don't worry; it will hold better when you come around with the next row of beads.

Step three:
Add a second row of 15/0 rose gold TOHOs. When you get to the "V", add a seed bead so that it nestles in the "V". Circle through the "V" if necessary to tighten it up.

Step four:
Weave your thread (or tie off and add more if necessary) so that it is positioned to the back side of the ring bezel, just to one side of the "V" point. On this side of the bezel, add a row of 15/0 seed beads, just as you did on the top side.

Step five:
Place the Swarovski 30mm fancy pearl in Crystal Royal Green Shiny into the bezel, with the shiny side facing out of the top of the bezel. Create another row on the back side of the bezel following this pattern of beads:
  • Eight 11/0 Delicas
  • Eight rose gold TOHOs
  • Eight 11/0 Delicas
  • Three rose gold TOHOs
  • One rose gold TOHO to nest in the "V" shape


Step six:
For the third row on the back of the bezel, skip through a bead, add a rose gold TOHO, skip through a bead, add four 11/0 Delicas, skip through a bead, add four more 11/0 Delicas, skip through a bead, add a rose gold TOHO and then repeat this pattern four times. When you reach the Delicas, use the same technique you used on the top side of the bezel to get to the "V". Add three 11/0 Delicas to close up the "V". The back of your bezel should look like this:


Step seven:
Build the sides of the ring using the pattern outlined in this PDF diagram. Depending on your finger size, you may need to stop short on the pattern or continue it out longer. Once it is the desired length, do not stitch the ends of the bands together just yet. Each side should look like this:


Step eight:
Reinforce the inside of the band by adding Delicas as shown in the picture below and cinch through previous beads as you go. This will help to keep the back edge of the ring band (near the round end of the pear) under the bezel.


Step nine:
When you are sure of the proper fit of your band, zip up the ends by stitching them together. Your ring is now ready to wear.
