Fix D, E beads onto the wire (pic.1). Take a small length of wire and pick up C onto it, slide it down to the middle of the wire. Put the ends of the wire together and pick up the bead and several C beads onto them. Take two ends of the wire and go through the last C towards each other. Connect the end of the wire together.
Attach F beads to the wire and work one row around in C, using picture 2 as a guide.
