I have seen buttons glued to ring shanks and wanted to figure out away to make my own version of a button ring with beads. I played around for hours to come up with this design.
In my videos I am going to start coloring both ends of my string two different colors. So it is easier to understand what beads I pick up or what beads I am going through. Thank you Crazydoc for this color coded string end idea hopefully it will be more helpful for everyone. Tutorial link below
3ft. of 8lb. test fishing line or 4ft. of 6lb. test Fireline will work even better
4-4mm round beads
6-3mm round beads
11mm four holed round button
11/0 seedbeads I used two colors
It is important to stay as close as possible to a 11mm four holed round button because it will deform the design 10mm or 12mm should be fine also.
This ring is done with a rivoli shank button. To find out how to do it with a shank button go to buttom of page.
The ring on the left was my experimental ring.
This is what the back of the rings looks like they are so comfortable.
