Picture 1
Work 9-bead tubular peyote stitch in A (Fig. 1), 36cm long. You should get a hard but flexible rope. Work two decorative elements in A beads (Fig. 2) and attach them to the ends of the rope, going through the beads marked * in Fig. 2. Now attach a set of beads and findings to each end. Pick up like this: 1 D, 1 E, 1 C, 1 E, 1 D, 1 A and a clasp. Go back through each set 2 or 3 times to secure it, and tie off (Picture 1). It will make about 40cm total length.
Picture 2
Attach 16 pearl beads C to the rope chequer-wise, leaving approximately 2cm space between them. See Picture 2 to know how to fix those pearl beads using B for stopper beads.
