Ladybird or ladybug?  North Americans call these polka dot insects ladybugs but the British and other parts of the world know them as ladybirds.  They aren't true bugs, so they are more accurately known as ladybird beetles or lady beetles by entomologists. Whatever!  They are really pretty and most species do a good job of eating plant pests.

I was delighted when I spotted one of Aleshia (Beadiful Nights)'s newest tutorial for ladybird rings! The design is relatively simple.  The larger seed beads do give the design some depth which is what Aleshia went with after her initial attempts with delicas. She also uses monofilament which helps give that raised effect.
