Regal Rings Necklace by Cynthia Rutledge

Regal Rings is all about a simple design and an explosion of color! I love projects that have a lot of color play and repetitive components. There is something addictive about that combination.

One simple, repeating, decorative component comes together to create a stunning necklace, using dimension for impact and a sophisticated color palette for drama.

You will learn how to create 3-D rings made with Peyote stitch and a Netting stitch variation, to incase a string of pearls. The rings interlock in the front for a great 3-D look. As the rings work their way around to the back of the neck they are joined by simple bands of Peyote stitch, ending in a vermeil clasp. Each ring is approximately 1 1/4" in diameter and 1/4" thick.
