STEP 1

STEP 3
String onto the ends of the beading wire: one 6x1.5mm ribbed bead cap, one red/orange 10mm round and two 6x1.5mm ribbed bead caps (back-to-back).
STEP 4
Separate one length of beading wire from the rest, then string 20 yellow 3mm rounds. Place a Bead Stopper™ on the end of the beading wire. Repeat using each length of beading wire.

Remove the Bead Stopper from the lengths of beading wire then match up the ends.

    • Two 6x1.5mm ribbed bead caps (back-to-back)
    • One red/orange 10mm round
  • Two 6x1.5mm ribbed bead caps (back-to-back)
Repeat this sequence to string five set.
