I wear a lot of blue, but don’t have any blue rings. Today, I remedied that. The stone is an inexpensive lapis cab, 14x10mm. The opaque blue is a French size 13 bead, with s/l blue Japanese 15s and white pearl charlottes as accents. The bezel is made with stack stitch, gives a nice smooth edge to the bezel that peyote doesn’t. The band is herringbone. I started in the middle of the back, and added rows to each side to get the desired size. I used a variation at the end of the rows so that no thread is on the outside of the beads. Now, I have a blue ring!
