I found some fun dice beads that I thought would make awesome rings. I think they're really fun, and a playful twist on the chunky ring trend that's so hot right now. You're gonna need these lucky beauties, since you never know when a spontaneous road-trip will end in Vegas...
Lady Luck Cocktail Ring
Fits a ring size 7, but will stretch for larger sizes
7 plastic dice beads
.5mm Silver elastic beading cord
Size D crochet hook
Load all of your beads onto the elastic.
R1: ch 4, sl st to first ch to close round.
R2: slide a bead up and sc through the center of the ch 4 circle. Repeat until all of the beads have been used. Sl st into the first sc to close the round. (7 st)
R2: chain 20 (add more stitches for a larger ring, leave some off for a smaller ring). Sl st to the 2nd ch of R1 (or whatever stitch is on the opposite side of R1 from the chain). Fasten off. Weave in ends (which there isn't much space to do, I just tied it in a surgeons knot and used my crochet hook to weave it between the beads a little.) Snip off any extra elastic.
And don't forget to send me a postcard from Vegas!
