I love using seed beads to make fun patterns in my jewelry designs. You can come up with endless looks with these little beads.
Seed beads make it easy to express yourself in jewelry designs. Cheri used TOHO Treasures to create cute patterns that will add a loving touch to your style. She created a heart and arrow design in the rings she made, but you could easily use these seed beads to create words and other shapes. The TOHO Treasures are fun to work with, thanks to their uniform and cylindrical shape.
Create an even-count peyote stitch with 12 TOHO Treasure #1 11/0 opaque-lustered Navajo white seed beads. Create seven rows of plain white seed beads.
Finish your ring with all white rows, checking the length as you go, and stitching the ends together when the ring is the correct length. Make sure the row you end on features beads with an up/down orientation opposite from the row at the start of your stitch, so that the ends can "zip" together when stitched.
For this ring, you will need to make an odd-count peyote stitch row with nine TOHO Treasure #1 11/0 matte-color dark olive seed beads. As an alternative, Cheri likes to make this ring with eight beads and an even-count peyote stitch and adding the last column of green beads on one edge of the ring using brick stitch, so that the arrow pattern is centered.

Nice choice! All or most of the products needed for this project are shown below with quantities. Sometimes we sell out of components and aren’t able to order more from the manufacturer (we know, it is very disappointing to us, too). Use the opportunity to mix up the design and make it yours by substituting similar products or altering the entire color scheme—it’s up to you!
