In the April 2009 special issue Brilliant Crystal Jewelry 2, the materials list for "Princess ring," p. 64, mistakenly includes a 10 mm cube crystal instead of the 8 mm cube crystal shown and used for the instructions. I'm sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.
To explain, I
also made rings using a 10 mm bicone crystal and a round crystal. Both rings came together according to the instructions, without my having
to change any other materials. If you use a 10 mm cube, you will
need to adjust the size of the bicone crystals on the sides of the ring
to 5 mm. Or, you can adjust the number of size 11 seed beads to fit the beadwork along the sides of the cube.
As another alternative, I used a 6
mm cube to make "Princess ring" and substituted 3 mm bicones in place of the
4 mm bicones, which resulted in a smaller ring top.
