Photo A
1. On 1 yd. (.9 m) of beading wire or Illusion cord, center six color A 11/0 seed beads. Color the tip of one end red and the other end blue. With the red end, go through the opposite end bead to form a ring (PHOTO A).

2. On the red end, string a 4 mm bicone crystal, a 6 mm rivoli pendant from front to back, an 8 mm cubic zirconia (CZ) from front to back, a 4 mm, a CZ from back to front, a rivoli from back to front, and a 4 mm. Working counterclockwise, go through the next A in the ring, which is next to the blue tail. With the blue end, go through the next three beads (PHOTO B).

3. On the blue end, string a 4 mm, a CZ from back to front, a rivoli from back to front, and a 4 mm. Go through the next A 11/0 in the ring, which is next to the red tail. With the red end, go through the next three beads (PHOTO C).

 

4. Using alternating ends, repeat step 3 three times. After the last repeat, with the red end, go through the first three crystals from step 2.

5. On the red end, string a 4 mm, and cross the blue end through it (PHOTO D). Pull tight to snug up the beads, and continue to pass the blue end through the next three crystals in the bottom ring of 4 mms. With the red end, go through the next three crystals in the bottom ring of 4 mms. The red and blue ends will cross through the same 4 mm.

6. On each end, string five color B 11/0 seed beads. Cross the ends through another B (PHOTO E).

 

7. On each end, string three Bs, and cross the ends through another B. Repeat until your ring band is 1⁄4 in. (6 mm) short of the desired length.

8. On each end, string five Bs, and cross the ends through the opposite 4 mm (PHOTO F). Cross the ends back through a few stitches in the band. Dot the ends with glue at the point where they exit the band. Let the glue dry, and trim the tails.
Tip!
Editor’s note: Using the same step-by-step instructions, I made substitutions to create these variations: In the bottom ring, I used top-drilled 6 mm bicone crystals in place of the CZs; in the center ring, I used margaritas in place of the top-drilled rivoli beads; in the top ring, I omitted the 8 mm CZ, which resulted in a smaller version of the ring.
