Hello! Where’d you get that bling?

Jody Witt was inspired by 1970s rings that her grandmother made using elastic thread and plastic beads. Those first rings were a bit taller and plump—they looked more like berries on your finger. This sleeker setting is worked in a continuous spiral. A single spool of this elastic thread makes several rings. Add a mixed batch of beads and you’re set to crochet.

Best of all? You can whip up a batch of rings in the time it takes to catch up on the latest Mad Men episodes—make one to match all your mod outfits this summer. Make some for all your friends, too. Then head out to that poolside cocktail party!
