Project Description:

While trying to design a ring to go with a mother-of-the-bride dress, I came up with this fun cocktail style ring that I call a "mocktail" ring. Very easy to do if you know how to do a no needle right angle weave, this ring can be made in any color combination of Swarovski crystals your heart desires!

Shanna Steele, Aunties Beads Designer

This project requires knowledge of a no needle right angle weave. To learn how to do this technique, please watch the Right Angle Weave Bracelet video.
  1. To begin, cut a piece of monofilament measuring about 30-36 inches in length. String the following: 6mm platinum, 6mm blue and 6mm platinum. Make sure they are centered. On the left side, add a 6mm blue pearl. Cross over with your right thread through the 6mm blue pearl just added. Make sure your work is centered and that both tails of thread are about the same length.
  2. On the left, pick up a 6mm platinum and an 6mm blue pearl. On the right, pick up a 6mm platinum. Cross over with the right thread through the 6mm blue pearl added on the left.
  3. Pick up a 6mm platinum and 8mm blue on the left. Pick up a 6mm platinum on the right. Cross over through the blue 8mm pearl on the left.
  4. Pick up an 8mm platinum and a 10mm blue on the left. Pick up an 8mm platinum on the right. Cross over with the right thread through the 10mm blue added on the left.
  5. On the left, pick up an 8mm platinum and an 8mm blue. On the right, pick up an 8mm platinum. Cross over with your right thread through the blue bead added on the left.
  6. With the left thread, pick up a 6mm platinum and a 6mm blue pearl. On the right, pick up a 6mm platinum pearl. Cross over with your right thread through the blue pearl on the left.
  7. Repeat step 6 until your ring almost fits. You will want it to be 1/4" (or 1/4 of a size) away from the desired fit.
  8. On the left, pick up a 6mm platinum pearl. On the right, pick up a 6mm platinum pearl. Cross over with both threads through the 6mm blue pearl that started the piece. Your threads should be running in opposite directions out of the same bead.
  9. Position your piece so the threads are running left and right and are directly in front of you. Take your right thread up through the 6mm platinum pearl above the thread, then to the left through the 6mm blue pearl to the left, then down through the 6mm platinum pearl below the thread. (Think of it as though you are weaving in a counterclockwise motion.) Your threads should now meet up.
  10. Tie a knot. Apply a dab of glue to the knot. Run your threads through nearby pearls. Cut excess thread.
