Beaded Ring

I used stretchy clear beading cord ( great for those swollen finger days) ~ and also makes the teensie knot to finish the ring virtual invisible.

I beading technique I used is the Ladder Stitch   Grin

i like making beaded rings as well. i really like yours and how the knot is not visible, when i use clear beading cord you can see the knot, how did you do it? thanks!

Well I first off try I to make my design end up with the knot in the back and under the finger.  I end off on the side and sort of *tuck* the knot into the hole and/or close as possible.  You can use jewelry cement to enforce the knot if needed and cut the cord as close as possible to the knot.

hope that helped.  Smiley

I'm wondering: does the stretchy cord "take a licking and keep on ticking" though? (In other words, does it last as long?) (I've always steered clear of it because it looked like it wouldn't wear very well  Huh)

this stretchy cord isn't the fabric coated junky kind.  It's made for beading.  It's strong. I wear that ring a few times a week ( which includes washing dishes, and all the other crafts I dive my hands into!! ...( and have made other items as well in the past w/the cord...)  hasn't broke as of yet!

I know the kind you mean (I have some but can't think of the brand name right now). Thanks for the review. I'm going to try it after your glowing report. It always looked kind of fragile to me, but it sounds like it stands up to dishwashing better than I do!!!!  Wink Thanks for sharing.

Thank you so much Artzy! I went to buy beading cord this afternoon and discovered the craft store's beads were all 40% off. *fans face and gasps for air* I ended up buying monofilament and E6000 instead of jelly cord (it was all so thick!) If you happen to know or come across the name brand of the stuff you're using for stringing, I'd really appreciate you posting it. I can't wait to make more tonight!
