Contest Rings

While at the Southern Bead Retreat, the participants were given baggies of these wonderful black rings.  We were told it was a contest.  Our mission, should we decide to accept, was to use these rings to make something lovely and beaded!!!  Here are the pictures of my progress!  I hope the contest sponsers, The Beadcage in Columbus, GA enjoy seeing this post.  If you would like to order some rings to make your own necklace or just try your hand at beading them, just contact

Just trying out my design before beading it.  I kind of like this idea!

Done.  Below you can see the whole necklace and the closure.  I hid snaps inside the triangle!

I call this necklace Royal Rings.  To find out more about it, please visit my Beaders' Showcase spot.


  1. Very elegant design.

    Love what you've done with those rings, the necklace is gorgeous!

    Happy blogging :)

  3. Wow! I see the first prize winner here

  4. You certainly rose to the challenge! These are lovely. I hope you keep writing. Great Blog post.

  5. wow...lovely blog and you write a great post...
    congrats (I'm following you now^_^)

  6. What a great design! I love that you hid the clasp in the triangle - I always find that clasps (selection/connection/designing) give me more trouble than making the whole rest of the piece! I also think your blog is very well done - I am jealous! My only wish is that I cannot remember what you look like. Keep up stitching those tiny beads. Nan Morrissette

  7. Beautiful! Great job with the rings. Hard to imagine a better use for them! And a wonderful first blog entry. Keep going girl!

  8. Love it!!! I'm afraid my rings are still sitting in my "Bead Filing" Box. You certainly have inspired me!!


  9. I love what you have done with those rings! How creative.

  10. Awesome! You're not a bad writer at all, btw. Straight and to the point is best! Also, when I check out blogs (don't have time to do one myself), I'm looking at the eye candy for the most part! (you have wonderful eye candy!) Congratulations on starting your blog!
