  • How to make a beaded band ring. Elastic Sparkly Ring - Step 1
    Step 1

    Thread all the beads onto a 20cm length of Stretch Magic elastic, with a crimp tube on each side. You may need to remove or add beads later to make it fit perfectly.

    Take the chaton montee (which is a sparkly stone in a metal setting with holes on the back) and turn it upside down so the metal setting is face up. This makes it easier to thread. Thread one end of the elastic through the top two holes right to left and the other end through the bottom two holes left to right.
