Self-taught, I picked up jewelry beading by learning from handicraft books and appreciating the many beautiful crafts made by other artisans. I am particularly attracted to everything whimsical and romantic and off-loom beadweaving techniques.
This sweetheart ring is handmade by myself using flat peyote stitch, an off-loom beadweaving technique, and 3 shades of japanese delica beads. Each bead is weaved with Nymo thread at least twice to make the ring durable for frequent wear.
The ring in the image consists of 4 pastel hearts, inner circumference measures 2.12 inch (53.8mm) - US size 6¾, UK size N. As everyone's ring size varies, this item is made to order. You can find out your ring size here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ring_size by using a string to measure round the base of your finger.
All handmade items from Foong are shipped from sunny Singapore (in South East Asia). It will take about 6-12 working days to reach USA or UK via registered mail (our national postal service SingPost). Jewelry pieces are sometimes delayed in the customs of the receiving country.
Using registered mail, you will also be able to track your parcel online, just 1 day after I send it to the post office! (note: someone has to be there to sign for registered mail, this way your purchase would not get lost!)
Tip: To extend the wear-life of your handmade jewelry, do avoid contact with water and perfume. After wear, do wipe them dry with a soft clean cloth. It is recommended to store in an air-tight plastic bag or container away from moisture.
