What you need
Solid color seed bead
Translucent color seed bead
Using two colors of seed beads, one solid the other translucent; add one solid color and two translucent then two solid then two translucent and one solid. Go through all these 8 seed beads again and pull tight so that it looks like there are two rungs or ladders of beads.
Thus this stitch is called a ladder stitch)
Adding one solid and two translucent and one solid go back through last ladder and back up through these last 4 beads you have just added. Continue in this fashion until the ring fits your finger. Now going through first ladder and last ladder join the ring together.
(It is best to join at least twice around)
