If you're using Accu-Flex® beading wire, string the pearls onto a length of Accu-Flex beading wire appropriate for the size circle you are creating, and add a crimp bead to one end. Pass the other wire's end through the crimp bead and pull the ends of the wire snugly, forming a circle. Crimp the crimp bead. Trim any excess wire.
If you're using thread like Silkon, place a light twisted beading needle onto a length of thread 6 inches longer than the circle you're creating. String the pearls onto the thread, leaving a 3-inch tail. Pass the needle back through the first bead strung, forming a circle. Tie a half-hitch knot, add a dab of Loctite® 454 Gel adhesive to the knot then pass the needle through the next pearl in the circle. Tie another half-hitch knot and add a dab of adhesive. Pass the needle around the circle until you exit two pearls from the other thread end. Remove the needle then add it to the other thread end. Make a half-hitch knot, add a dab of adhesive, pass the needle through the next pearl and make a surgeon's knot with the two thread ends. Apply a dab of adhesive, let cure then trim the thread ends with scissors.
