    Necklace


    Figure 1



    Figure 2


    Using (A-H) beads work one half of the necklace base in peyote stitch (Fig. 1). Bead the other half in the mirror image. When the necklace base is finished, go back through the row of (D) beads again to pull the thread taut and to attach some (I), (J), (K) beads (see the photograph). Bead two ropes (Fig. 2) in (E) and attach them to each side of the necklace. Attach the two parts of the lobster clasp to the ends of the ribbons.

    Bracelet


    Figure 3
    Bead the bracelet in (A-H) working symmetrically in both directions and having started in the middle (Fig. 3). Go back through the lower row of light purple seed beads to pull the thread taut and to sew in drop beads (J). Attach the two halves of the magnetic clasp to the ends of the bracelet.

    Hairpin


    Figure 4
    Using (A-H), bead symmetrically in both directions (Fig. 4). Go back through the lower row of light purple seed beads pulling the thread taut and attaching (I) and (J). Carefully attach the beaded motif to the metal hairpin finding: glue it first and then fix it with monofilament thread.

    Earrings


    Figure 5
    Work two similar designs for earrings in (A-H) beads (Fig. 5). Go back through the lower row of (D) beads, pulling the thread taut and adding the beads marked * (I) to the lower earring corners. Attach the earwire.

    Brooch


    Figure 6



    Picture 1
    Bead the brooch in (A-H) working symmetrically in both directions (Fig. 6). Connect the two triangles in the middle, working from the center to the edges (Picture 1). Join the small triangles with each other and attach the bar pin finding.
