Rhiannon Ring Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Spice up simple designs with Crystaletts buttons! These cute little buttons can be used in so many ways. Cynthia used them like beads in her peyote stitch ring and they became wonderful embellishments that fit seamlessly into her project. See more ideas for using Crystaletts buttons in your designs in this Artbeads Cafe episode.

Step one:
Create a peyote stitch ring using the Miyuki 11/0 opaque black round seed beads. You will start with 10 beads on your thread, so that each of your rows includes five beads. For help making peyote stitch rings, take a look at this Handy Tip.

Step two:
Create a few rows, then add a Crystaletts 3mm Crystal AB Swarovski crystal button to the center of a row instead of a seed bead. Finish the row with seed beads, then create five rows of plain peyote stitch. Add a Crystaletts button to the center of the next row, finish the row with seed beads, then add five more plain rows of peyote stitch. Add a Crystaletts button to the center of the next row. Finish the rest of your ring with plain peyote stitch, making sure it is the desired size. Stitch the ends of the peyote stitch together as described in the above handy tip.

Step three:
Position your thread so that it is exiting out of an edge bead. You can add a new thread if necessary. Add three Miyuki 11/0 aqua green opal dyed alabaster silver round seed beads to the thread. Bring your needle down through the next edge bead and up through the edge bead after that. Continue the decorative edge until you reach the beginning again. Then, repeat the process for the other edge of the ring. Finish off the thread and trim.
