This is a ring I made a while back. It is made of glass and seed beads. I weaved a clear fishing cord to connect the glass beads (on top) and clear elastic cords to tie up the seed beads that go around the finger. The elastic cord makes it easy to take on and off. I haven't made much jewelry (esp. beaded), but I'm very proud of this piece. Hope it inspires someone  Smiley

Beautiful!  I always figured that there's a way to use both fishing cord and elastic cord, so I'm glad to see that it works.  Great work!

I find joy in creating and helping others create not just jewelry and crafts but best of all, the life they want.

This ring is tons of fun!  It's gorgeous, but doesn't look that expensive.

It looks very fun! The elastic cord sounds like a good idea for rings, I'll be sure to remember that next time. =)
