Two of them are especially perfect for the beginning beader who wants to make a quick impact: Midnight Delight and Earth, Wind And Fire. In Midnight Delight, you'll find two layered stone donuts strung on clustered stands of silk cording and no clasps to fool with. Earth, Wind And Fire is a little more elaborate with a trio of natural stone donuts and eight other coordinating beads all strung on silk beading cord. The instructions call for the use of a spring crimp to finish on this one, but a simple knot would work well, too. Both designs also include beading idea options for making the designs all your own and beautifully simple. You can also find more beading ideas here.
