Beauty Queen Ring with Swarovski Crystal
Get inspired by Swarovski design team's limitless imagination. Magical project ideas bring a new dimension to simple techniques.
Lavish some special attention on your hands and dress them up in a regal ring fit for a princess.
This gorgeously grandiose piece of jewellery is easy to make and effortless to wear. Simple follow our guide to threading shimmery Swarovski crystal onto nylon thread to form a majestic cluster of light-reflecting beads. Add a fancy stone in a striking shade to underline the bold statement still further. Your friends will be green with envy!
Cut one meter of monofilament, add four 5301 beads to it and move to the center of the thread. Take the left end of the monofilament and thread through the first bead on the right-hand side, allowing the strand to create a loop; the thread will cross over inside this one bead. Pull tight.
Thread a bead through each end and allow them to drop down to the loop of beads. Add a bead to the left-hand end of the monofilament and thread the right-hand end through this bead in the opposite direction (crossing over inside the bead). Repeat another 16 times to create a chain.
Add a bead to one end and thread through the first bead you added, taking care not to twist the chain of beads. Add a bead to the other end, thread through the first bead in the opposite direction and then through the bead added at the start of this step, so the threads crossover inside the bead. Pull tight to form a ring
Add three beads to the end on the right, with the other end thread upwards through the last bead to form a loop. Thread the end that is pointing downwards (towards the ring) through the next bead on the original ring. Add two beads to the end that is pointing upwards. Thread the other end through the last bead added (so that the ends cross over inside the bead).
Continue adding beads in this way until you are back at the first bead added in step four. Add one bead to close the ring, crossing the thread over in the bead. Thread one of the ends down to the bottom row threading through three beads. Thread through all of the outer beads in a circle going through the first two beads twice.
Pull the thread tight so the bottom of the bezel ring closes. Tie a knot around the ring of monofilament in between two beads. Holding the thread just below the knot with a pair of tweezers, use a lighter to melt the end.
Place the erinite stone in the bezel with foiled side facing downwards. With the remaining end of monofilament thread through all of the top rows of beads in a circle. Pull tight to hold the stone in place. Take the monofilament down through several beads to the bottom row. Tie a knot around the ring of monofilament in between two beads.
Holding the thread just below the knot with a pair of tweezers, use a lighter to melt the end. Cut 50cm of monofilament. Thread through the center bead on the long edge underneath of the bezel. Make sure both ends of monofilament are the same length. Add one bead onto each side then add a third bead crossing the ends in the bead. Repeat 13 times or until the ring is the right length for you.
