    Middles of the flowers

    Step 4

    Figure 8
    Attach a pearl bead in the middle of each flower (Fig. 7). Use a 7mm bead for Flower 1, an 8mm bead for Flower 2, and a 10mm bead for Flower 3. Bead around these pearl beads, using B first and then combine it with A (Fig. 8). Fit it on the pearl beads each time to know the exact number of seed beads you need.

    Figure 10
    Bead a 9cm rope (Fig. 9a) in A and work a loop on its end (Fig. 9b). Bead one more rope 18cm long (Fig. 9a) in A and attach a 10cm pearl on its end (Fig. 9b). Attach B, E along the edges of your ropes (Fig. 10).

    Connect the flowers going through the side beads of the petals (Fig. 11). Attach the 8cm rope to the upper petal of Flower 1 and the 18cm rope to the petal of Flower 3. Work a peyote stitch ribbon in D, B about 20cm long (Fig. 12). Work another ribbon in A, B, C about 16cm long (16cm long (Fig. 13). Attach both ribbons to the ropes (see the photograph).
