BASIC TECHNIQUE 6

Use 50 cm craft wire.

 

 
  1. Use basic technique 1 and place the following amount of beads in the middle of the wire:
    1-1-1.
     
  2. Join the wire ends together by placing 1 bead on the wires.
     
  3. Place 4 beads on the left wire.
     
  4. Place another 4 beads on the right wire.
     
  5. Join the wire ends together by placing 2 beads.
     
  6. Take one wire and place as many beads as needed to reach the 3rd bead from the top. 
    Insert the wire through this bead.
     
  7. Place the same amount of beads and lead the wire down again. 
    Join the wire ends together by placing 1 bead.
     
  8. Now take the longest wire and place as many beads as needed to reach the 2nd bead from the top.
    Insert the wire through this bead.
    Repeat step 7.
      
  9. Take the longest wire and place as many beads as needed to reach the top bead.
    Insert the wire through this bead.
    Repeat step 7 again, but this time the wires are not joined by 1 bead, but by winding the wires together.
