I made these rings while I was stuck in my house during a snow storm! The snowy weather inspired my design.
Inspiration for making jewelry can come from anywhere Cynthia was inspired to make a snowy set of rings while snowed in at her home over the winter. She captured the beauty of falling snow and icy blue colors in each peyote stitch ring. If you're feeling inspired, make up your own seed bead patterns like Cynthia did with our Free Seed Bead Graph Paper.
Create an odd-count peyote stitch band following the color pattern of our PDF Diagram. We used TOHO 11/0 Aiko precision cylinder seed beads in opaque white and fiber-optic powder blue.
Repeat the steps from above to make an odd-count peyote stitch ring with TOHO Treasure 11/0 seed beads in inside-color luster crystal/opaque aqua-lined, PermaFinish galvanized blue slate, and opaque-pastel light gray. Use the color pattern in the PDF Diagram. Remove rows if you need to shorten the length or add more rows with the same color pattern if you need to add length.
Repeat the steps from above to make an odd-count peyote stitch ring using the same TOHO Treasure colors. Use the color pattern in the PDF Diagram. Remove rows in you need to shorten the length or add more rows with the same color pattern if you need to add length.
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!
