Figure 2

Bead the left half of base netting, using (D) (Fig. 1). Bead the right half of the base netting (Fig. 2). A note: One sector of this netting is made of (A) beads. That's why the cells in this sector should have a different number of seed beads comparing to the other cells. Attach a clasp.

Figure 6

Bead a big flower (Fig. 3), changing bead color and size as shown on the photograph. Now bead a small flower in almost the same way. The only difference is that originally you thread a fewer number of beads. String some (Q) beads and (R) cut seed beads for the pistils and attach them to the flowers.
Fold the flowers cornet-shaped and sew them to the base netting (see the finished image).
