On a comfortable length of Fireline, pick up four color A 11/0 seed beads, and, leaving a 6-in. (15 cm) tail, sew through the beads again. Tie the tail and working thread together with a surgeon’s knot, and continue through the next two beads.
 Begin stitching in right-angle weave, picking up three A 11/0s per stitch until you have 67 beads along each edge.
 To form the beadwork into a ring, pick up an A 11/0, sew through the end A 11/0 of the first stitch, pick up an A 11/0, and sew through the A 11/0 your thread exited at the start of this step (Photo A). Make sure your strip isn’t twisted as you join the ends.
 Stitch two more rounds of right-angle weave using A 11/0s, ending and adding thread as needed.
 To join the edges, exit a top A 11/0 in the last round. Pick up an 8/0 seed bead, and sew through the corresponding bottom A 11/0 in the first round. Pick up an 8/0, and sew through the top A 11/0 again (Photo B). Continue stitching in right-angle weave, using 8/0s to join the edges of the beadwork.
