 HELP! I can't figure out how you close the ring. I am done forming the peyote pattern but I cant figure out how to finish of the ring as far as tying it off.

You can just weave around as necessary to get back to the tail thread... then, once your beginning and ending threads are coming out of adjacent holes, you can tie them together with a surgeon's knot. Then run each thread back into the bead it came from and on around the ring again until you're ready to trim the tails. However, since rings take so much abuse, you might want to strengthen the piece by weaving around until the threads meet on the other side -- then repeat the tying-off process before threading back through several more beads and trimming the tails. (If you've never tied a surgeon's knot, you can check the Basics section in Beadwork for instructions.)
