Medieval Ring

In trying to find an easy pattern to show others at the upcoming

private gathering in TN, I saw Maria Teresa's Medieval Ring

featured in the October 2009 Beadwork Magazine. Seemed simple

enough, but I work better from drawings, and it took me a couple

of tries to realize they were only showing half of a side of tubular

herringbone for the bits...snip, snip, and back to reading both the

written and drawn instructions. Finally got it put together- used a

12mm black tourmaline (repels negativity), transparent matte dk

silver and black delicas, and two 3mm Swar bicones at the sides.

It is very comfy to wear- I would recommend this pattern for someone

with some beading experience, or a beginner with patience and alot

of thread!Click on photo to full size.
