Pass the thread along the outside of the last 4mm frosted lavender Twin seed bead and pass the thread back though the second hole on the 4mm frosted lavender Twin seed bead.

String onto the thread the first hole on two 4mm frosted lavender Twin seed beads. Pass the thread back through the second hole on the first 4mm frosted lavender Twin seed bead from the first row.

Tie the thread to the original tail using two overhand knots. Place a small amount of adhesive on the knot for added security. Trim the excess thread.
