I made two rings tonight!
I didn't have any small beads handy, so I decided to use up some glass beads with which I was going to make earrings, but it turned out the giant box o' beads I bought had very, very few pairs that matched!
So I made quite a few earrings without partners (maybe wearing mismatched earrings will catch on... hmm), then decided to try my hand at a variation of this ring:http://www.diynetwork.com/diy/cr_jewelry/article/0,,DIY_13762_3943990,00.html

Sorry for the not-so-great photo quality--my camera is broken, so I had to use Photo Booth :s
