Starburst Ring


About this design:

I am crazy about this ring! The overall design has been done many times, but I have found a new construction technique that makes this one unique. The ring is not constucted with headpins, but with thread using a filagree beadcap for a base. Firm tension on the cord will make a firm burst, or light tension makes more of a flower like the pink one. The size 8 delica's make a comfortable ring band!

Components:

32 4 mm Swarovski crystals, 1 6mm Swarovski crystal, 1 large filagree beadcap or small filagree bracelet round, assorted size 11 seedbeads to match crystals, 9 lb monofilament cord, beading needle
