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.
