  • 00:00: hello everyone I'm Alisha in my last video I showed you how to make these
  • 00:32: ravishing around duo bracelets and after I did that video I was looking at the bracelet and I was studying my design and I was trying to figure out if I can get a ring out of this bracelet so um I was looking and I realized that there's kind of a circle pattern right here you see that it kinda looks like a circle so I took that right there and I made into a ring and this is what it looks like it turned out beautifully I wasn't sure if it was gonna look this nice but it looks even better than I thought it would and on it's even more amazing um I thought
  • 01:02: that it would kind of stick up right here and on this side but it's not it's really curved and fitting to the finger so this is what it looks like from the side could see how curved it is to the finger here it is from this side and it just turned out beautifully I'm really happy with it now after we made these bracelets we had leftover round duo's so you can use this leftover on do is to make this ring and you could probably make several rings
  • 01:32: with the leftover unders that you have from this bracelet so for this tutorial I'm gonna show you how to make this ravishing round duo ring so let's get started here's the list of materials you will need to make one ring you will need 40 inches of 8 pound or 6 pound fireline to size ten or twelve beading needles 11 o seed beads in two to three colors of your choice and nine Rondo's now to
  • 02:03: match my bracelet here i'm going to do six purple and three bronze or crystal gold so on if you already made the bracelets then you're gonna want to make the ring to match it and this is my pattern here so i have to repeat that same pattern for my ring now if you don't have these round duo's i will leave a link for them in the description bar down there below the video and also I will leave the list of materials down there description bar below the video so look down there
  • 02:34: for the link to the randos and the materialist so this is all you're gonna need and let's get started I went ahead and I put my fire line onto my needles and I made sure that my tails are the same length and the first thing I'm gonna do is pick up 711 OC beats four five six seven double-check okay I have seven I'm gonna slide this down and then looking back at my bracelet here I
  • 03:04: could see that I have to pick up a purple my seed beads the gold one and then the seed beads and the purple again so here's my purple one to pick that up pass through it like this okay bring the speed all the way down to the center of my thread so we have this okay now I'm going to take my needles and on each
  • 03:35: side I'm gonna pick up three another no seed beads okay I'm gonna slide them down and then I'm gonna pick up a gold Rondo and I'm gonna pass through it just like this and just like in my round duo bracelet I'm using um Preciosa Ornella check seed beads okay so after that I'm gonna pick up 311 OC beads again on each
  • 04:08: needle okay slide that down and then I'm gonna pick up a purple around you and I'm gonna pass through it same way okay so bring this down make sure that this is still in the center of our thread down here okay the next thing I'm gonna do is pick up one seed bead on each needle and slide that down then I'm
  • 04:41: gonna pick up five seed beads okay then I'm going to slide them down a few inches then I'm gonna take my other needle and I'm gonna pass through these five seed beads just like this Chris Clark crisscrossing my threads and I'm gonna bring this down till we have this okay pull these tight so I'm gonna make sure my needles are still even and they
  • 05:13: are okay so this is what we should have right now now I'm going to take one of my needles stick it in the mat I'm gonna take my other one and I'm gonna pick up three I love enough seed beads I'm going to do purple and then I'm gonna do my bronze color here and then three purple so I'm actually picking up a total of seven seed beads okay slide these down pick this back up and I'm gonna take my
  • 05:45: needle skip over this 11 OC bead over my round do over this one and I'm gonna go through this seed bead here in the middle okay just like this now I'm gonna pick up an 11 OC bead around do another round do and I love in our seed bead slide this down I'm gonna take my needle and I'm gonna go through the seed bead

  • 08:50: going to pull both of my threads tight so we now have this now I'm gonna do is I'm gonna take this thread right here I'm gonna take my needle I'm gonna go through the seed bead here in the middle then through these two green and then through these three purple right here okay I'm gonna pull this all the way through stick that needle in my mat take
  • 09:21: my other needle this one's exiting right here I'm gonna take my needle pass down these three green I love the nose and through these three purple okay just the purple ones here to actually want to twist a little bit okay so just like this pull this needle through and
  • 09:54: now we have this so I have to tighten this up and I'm just gonna pull both of my threads tight just like this okay now I'm going to take one of my needles doesn't matter which we're gonna do the same thing to both sides and I'm going to pick up 311 OC beads a bunch of my bronze here slide this down now I'm gonna take my needle skip over this bronze here I'm gonna go through this
  • 10:25: purple one and then through my round duo so just like this pull my thread through sexy see if it's here pull it tight and pull this side tight again it's loosening up and this is what it should look like now I'm gonna add my round duo pick that up I'm gonna go through this
  • 10:57: hole right here and my round do okay and then I'm gonna have to go through this seed bead right here this 11-hour seed bead next to my bronze just like this pull this through okay and now your piece should look like this now I'm going to pick up 311 OC beads okay slide those down take my needle and I'm gonna
  • 11:30: go through these three right here that are purple these three 11 OC beads and then I'm going to go through these green ones okay and what I want to do is exit out of this one right here so I went through these three eleven OC beads then I'm going to go through these four green ones and I'm going to exit out right here okay
  • 12:01: so I'm not going through this one over here I have two right here that I'm not passing through so I'm gonna pull my needle through pull it tight okay and that should look like this now I'm going to swap my needles and flip my piece over and I'm gonna work with the other side I'm gonna do the same thing and I'm right-handed so I prefer to work with my right hand on this side okay I'm gonna pick up 311 OC beads slide those
  • 12:34: down take my needle skipping over this bran seed bead I'm gonna go through this purple one right here okay then once I pass through that one 11 o seed bead I'm gonna go through my round duo pull my thread through until we have this then I'm gonna pick up my last round duo I'm going to go through this purple Rondo
  • 13:05: right here and then I'm going to go through this 11 OC bead just like this pull my needle through pull it tight okay now I'm going to pick up 3 11 OC beads slide them down take my needle skip over this fronds and I'm gonna go through this purple one just these three purple then I'm going to go through all of
  • 13:35: these green and I want to exit out of this one right here okay so I have to lift that up back my needle out to get through it okay so just like that we have these two green ones right here that I'm not
  • 14:05: passing through I'm just passing through these four green okay now I'm going to pull my needle all the way through I'm gonna take both of my threads and I'm gonna pull them just like this and it's gonna tighten up all my work and we need um these brown seed beads here to look just like this where they have are pointed and we don't want to see any thread in between the round Jew is here and the seed beads all of this needs to be tight okay now you should have your threads exiting down here out of these
  • 14:36: three green 11 OC beads she so you should have two green on each side that you're not passing through now at the part where what we're gonna add our ring band and I'm gonna do the Latisse ring band I'm going to sit this down take my needles and I'm gonna pick up three eleven OC beads on each side I'm gonna do a purple bronze purple slide this down on this side I'm gonna do a purple
  • 15:06: bronze purple slide that down and then I'm gonna pick up a bronze seed bead and cross through it okay bring this down and now we should have what looks like this okay so in my design of my bracelets I kind of like how I have the purple and the bronze on the inside and the green on the very outer edge so I'm
  • 15:37: gonna have purple and bronze on the center of my ring band here and on the outer edge I'll do the green so the next thing I'm gonna do is pick up three seed beads again on each side one purple on each side one bronze and again these are all living OC beads and another purple each says okay and slide these down then I'm gonna pick up a bronze seed bead and cross through it
  • 16:08: again I'll show you a close-up this is what it looks like I'm gonna sit this back down now I'm going to pick up three again on each side purple on purple three in each side just like this and slide them down then I'm gonna pick up a bronzy bead and cross through it okay let's down pull it tight and this is
  • 16:42: what we have I'm gonna do it one more time for those of you that haven't done this much I'm gonna pick up a purple each side purple lemon Oh a little it spawns and then a purple just like that it's like these down pick up throw into living oh and cross through it now another way to do this to make it a little bit faster I have my threads exiting out of this bronze seed bead so the next color I'm
  • 17:14: gonna pick up at each side would be purple so to make this a little bit faster I'm gonna pick it up like this on one side I'm gonna do a purple bronze purple this is just another way that you could do the ring band for those of you that have done this a lot you might want to that do it a different way that seems a little bit faster so um this is another alternative up how you can make this ring band okay so here you could
  • 17:44: see how I'm picking up two sea beads just alternating the colors again I'm gonna do another purple and it burns and I'll stop here I'm going to show you this way of doing it okay so I'm sliding this down I'm gonna slip this over because I'm right-handed we're gonna hold these sea beads just like this with my thread like this in my hand I'm gonna slide down those three right there okay and then I'm gonna hold on to this
  • 18:14: bronze one I'm gonna pick up my three colors my purple bronze purple just like this would this need I'm gonna slide PC beats down okay then I'm going to take my needle and I'm not gonna go in this direction but I'm gonna go in the opposite direction so my needles pointing that way so just like we would be Criss crossing our thread so I'm gonna do it this way now when I pull it I have one there so the next thing I'm gonna do is slide three down and
  • 18:44: hold onto this bronze and I'm gonna pick up three more seed beads purple bronze purple slide those down pick this back up right here is my bronze one and again my needles going in that direction so I need to go in the opposite direction just like this pull it and there we go I just made another one now I'm going to slide three down again and hold onto this bronze one here then I'm gonna pick up with my needle my purple bronze
  • 19:14: purple okay now my needle again is going that direction on that side so I'm just gonna crisscross my threads here and go through the seed bead that way and I just made another one so this is another alternative of how to make this ring band it's a little bit faster if you don't like working with both threads at the same time this is another way that you could do this ring down so yeah I picked up three of these seed beads I'm gonna go through this bronze one here pull it through and I just made another
  • 19:46: ring okay so keep going making this ring band either way you like either with both hands you could do three on each side and cross through the one seed bead or you could do you know pick up several seed beads on one thread and do it the way I'm doing here so keep going making this and what you're gonna do is wrap this around your finger and once this side meets this and you have it on your finger and it seems like it's the right size what you're gonna do is add two
  • 20:17: more of these rings because this ring band will shrink just a little bit so um once you add those two more it's gonna fit you just perfectly so keep going repeating this until you get to the ring band size that you need I kept on going and this is how long I need my ring band to be and for those of you that haven't made many rings I'm going to show you what I mean again by it shrinking so I'm gonna take this wrap it around the finger I want to wear this ring on okay slide these beads all the way to nothing down to my room okay make
  • 20:50: sure that this is this ring then here is flat okay make sure it's tight wrap this around the finger and I'm gonna connect the other side of my ring branch of these green seed beads right here so I'm gonna push this down and pull this tight and as you can see I have two extra rings right here and when I go to fill in the edges this it's gonna shrink and the rings gonna fit me just right okay it's now the next thing I'm gonna do is I'm going to take one of my needles and I'm gonna take this one over here so
  • 21:21: this needle here and I'm gonna connect a my ring band on this side here okay so taking this needle I'm gonna skip over these two green seed beads and I'm gonna go through these four that are green and then I'm gonna go through two purple there's one make there's two so I'm passing through these four green 11 oohs and then do these two I love it I
  • 21:51: was here that a purple so I'm passing through a total of six 11 of CDs because you're probably not using the same color I am okay so pass through those okay pull it tight I'm going to take my other needle make sure my ring band is laying flat I'm going to connect my other needle right here on this side so I'm gonna take this needle I'm gonna go skip over these two green ones here and gotta go through
  • 22:22: to use my fingernail to write up these four green seed beads and then through these two purple eleven O's so just like that these four green a-levels and these two purple over no it's a total of six eleven OC beads I'm gonna pull this needle all the way through then I'm gonna take both of my threads and I'm
  • 22:55: going to pull them tight so now we should have what looks like this okay it should look the same on the other side okay now I'm going to pick up with one of my needles three is over no seed beads slide those down I'm gonna take my thread my threads exiting out of these two purple here I'm gonna come around and I'm gonna go through this bronze
  • 23:26: seed bead right here and pull this through it okay pull it tight what I'm doing is I'm making a decorative edge right here so see how I have these pearly this collar is called eggshell seed beads right here that just makes it look more decorative so there's not a big drop-off on my ring here so I like adding the seed beads like that sometimes okay so after those three I'm gonna pick up two more I'll open those seed beads slide them
  • 23:56: down my needle exiting out of this bead I'm gonna skip over these two purple and I'm gonna go through this see bead here in the middle pull that through I'm gonna do it again pick up two seed beads slide those down my needle lets me out of here skipping over these two purple I'm gonna go through this seed bead okay now I'm gonna stop and go to my other
  • 24:27: needle because I need to keep my tension the same on both sides okay I'm gonna pick up three eleven OC beads because I'm right here and I'm gonna pass through this bronze one okay I'm gonna put both of my threads tight all right it looks like I didn't go through that C beat somehow I went just wrapping around
  • 25:01: the threads I'm gonna fix that real quick okay I miss my bead I'm gonna go through the bead just like that okay now I'm gonna pick up to 11 OC beads again exiting out of here I'm gonna go through this one again I'm gonna pick up to 11 OC beads and I'm gonna pass through this one
  • 25:31: right here I'm gonna stop right here because as you could see this is really loose you could see all my threads I'm gonna pull both of these threads tight and it should look like this okay I'm gonna pull one of my threads to the side and I'm just gonna keep going filling in the sides of my ring to 11 OC beats at a time I'm gonna pass through this bronze seed bead here in the center
  • 26:01: pick up to eleven rows again skipping over these two purple pass through this one here pick up two again skipping over these two purple and passed it as bronze here again pull it tight I'm gonna pick up to 11 I was again skipping over these two purple
  • 26:33: and go through this bronze here again okay one more time picking up to 11 I'll see beads just getting over these two purple and going through this bronze one in the middle okay so this is super duper easy keep going repeating these steps filling in these gaps here on the sides of the Ring you want to do both sides and once you get over here I'll
  • 27:04: show you what to do next so keep going filling in the edges I kept on going and I filled in both sides of my ring all the way till I got over here now what I'm gonna do my threads are exiting out of these two eleven on seed beads I'm going to take my needle it doesn't matter which we're gonna do the same thing to both exiting out of here I'm gonna pick up three eleven OC feeds slide them down I'm gonna make
  • 27:34: this side much this side over here I'm gonna take my needle and I'm gonna go in between these two seed beads right here okay so it's giving that purple one next to these bronze ones I'm going to go through these two and I'm gonna go through these green ones here okay I'm gonna try to go through it as many as I
  • 28:04: can okay so I just went through these two purple these four green when I go ahead and pass through cuz I probably won't be able to go to this next one yet pull this through oops okay pull it tight and my new seed beads are sitting right there okay my other needle is currently in my way okay look at that I'm really I'm exiting
  • 28:34: right here I'm gonna take my needle and I'm gonna pass through this green one and through these purple ones these three purple ones and also if I can I'd probably be able to if it looks like it's a little a little awesome each other maybe I can't okay just like that so I'm going through all these green ones through these three purple and out these two bronze just like that hold my needle through and this is what
  • 29:04: you should have now I'm going to set this needle down I'm going to take my other needle I'm going to do the same thing so exiting onto this bronze seed bead I'm gonna pick up three eleven OC beads slide those three seed beads down okay I'm gonna take my needle I'm gonna go in between these two purple seed beads right here I'm gonna pass through
  • 29:34: as many as I can let's see okay right there same spot as earlier okay so I went through these two purple 11 OHS through these four green eleven OHS I'm gonna take my needle pass all the way through just like that now I'm gonna take the needle again I'm gonna go through this green one through these purple ones and I'm gonna
  • 30:04: try to the bronze ones but I might have to stop and go back around oh I managed okay so through this green one these three purple lover notes and they used to brown some love my nose push a needle through pull it out now I'm gonna pull both of my threads tight and we should have this okay now I'm going to take my needles and I'm
  • 30:37: going to pick up for lovin OC beads I'm gonna pass through this round oh this hole on the very outer edge just like that pick up for 11 oohs again and I'm gonna pass through these two 11 OC beads the bronze ones hold tight and it should look like this
  • 31:08: I'm gonna flip this around I'm gonna pick up for 11 again on my other needle okay so this one here exit out of this bronze seed bead I'm gonna go through this round duo right here now I'm gonna pick up for more 11 OC beads slide those down I'm going to take my needle and I'm gonna pass through this bronze and C bead right here okay
  • 31:39: so I'm going to pull this tight and now we are ready to reposition ourselves so we could tie our half hitch knot so this is what my room looks like okay it's a little loose once I tie my knots it's gonna have a better shape to it okay so I have a thread right here and I'm going to take this needle and I'm gonna pass through this bronze seed bead and through these purple 11 OC beads okay
  • 32:11: and I'm gonna come out of them because it's kind of hard to pass through all of these at the same time because I have a thread already through them okay so out of here now what I have to do is have to go four through these four green seed beads right here and then I'm going to come out of this fourth one and I'm going to go down here into my ring band I'll start tying knots there but I had to do both of these sides at the reposition down here so I'm exiting
  • 32:42: right here I'm gonna take this needle I'm gonna go through these four green and wiggle it through okay just like that I'm gonna turn this I'm gonna take my needle and go down this purple seed bead this bronze one and this green one so through these three seed beads right
  • 33:13: here okay pull money go through we should have this now I'm going to flip this over I'm right-handed I'm going to do the same thing over here mmm exiting out of this bronze weren't already so I'm just gonna go through these three purple come out the top pull this all the way through now I'm going to take my needle and I have to lift up go between these green ones just creating purple
  • 33:46: right here my house use my finger now to separate it okay I got in there am I going through I
  • 34:17: try to go through all four of them to back out a little bit okay there we go so just like this I'm Xing out the purple seed beads eleven O's and I'm going through these four green I'm gonna pull my needle all the way through and I caught my other needle so I'm just gonna take that and go through that loop so now that's out of my way and I'm gonna
  • 34:48: pull this through okay now I'm going to take this needle here exit out the green and I'm gonna go through this purple the bronze seaweed and out this green G bead just like this pull it all the way through pull both sides tight and now we are in position to tie our half hitch knots and I'm gonna tie them on the edges of my ring band I'm gonna tie my
  • 35:18: half inch knots in between these green seed beads so right here is my thread I'm gonna take my needle go in this little hole right here I'm gonna make a loop and go through this loop choice okay I want my not to sit right here between these two beads so I'm going to pull this down slowly and right there was my knot is gonna be I'm gonna take
  • 35:49: this needle I'm gonna sew through this green bead and through the bronze one okay pull through now I'm gonna tie a knot right here past this hole make a loop and go through it twice okay and I want my not to fall right here and then slowly pull the thread down okay just like that now I'm going to take my needle pull it this direction make
  • 36:20: thread this direction so I could pass through this bead okay and I'm gonna go through this bead I'm gonna pull my knot and it's gonna go into this hole know if my knots not visible right here which it isn't I'll tie another knot right here and if it is visible I'll go through the next bead and time out so I'm gonna go through this hole make a loop go through it twice and bring this knot down right here okay and then that's gonna mess up
  • 36:50: on me so I just put my needle in there to fix it and pull it back down okay then I'm gonna pass through these two right here and tie another knot right here so keep going tying as many knots as you can because the more knots to tie the more durable your ring is gonna be and also it's gonna be a little more stiffer it's not going to be so soft so I'm gonna go all the way over here tying my half it's not so when I get to this side I'll set my
  • 37:20: thread and then I'll go to this thread over here and do the same exact thing and tie knots on this side as my ring ban so keep going tying your knots and then you're done this is it I hope you enjoyed this tutorial please like this video leave me a comment and subscribe if you want to see more of my videos and like me on Facebook and don't forget to share pictures of the door we've made from my videos on my Facebook page thank you so much for watching you
