First experiment in a ring

Still working with a size 40 thread I decided that this bell would probably look OK in a ring.


These rings are 2 1/2" in diameter and are often or usually sold as bracelets.  I used to call them 'Indian bracelets' but not sure what they're known as nowadays.  Hmmmm, perhaps I should google them!!!!

This one needs a bit of tidying up - a dab of glue on the ends (none need sewing in on this pattern), some careful 'snipping' of extra thread and the removal of a piece of hair/thread from the bottom right corner.

 Do you like the way I've added beads AFTER tying to the metal ring?  Not sure if I do but that's me - never sure of things!!!  Remember - this is JUST an experiment!!!!!

  1. Can I be honest, (or are you going to shoot me) I like the beads not sure about the ring.

  2. Nice bell! :)
    Around here bracelets like that are called bangle bracelets. I have one 25yr. old daughter who loves them.
