Step 1
Pass your needle through one hole of a T bead. Add 1 Ch bead using the dimpled hole closer to the bead’s center. Thread the other Ch hole from the back side. Pass your thread through the second T hole. Pass through the edge hole on Ch again, this time in its dimple. On the back, pass through the hole closer center as well. Turn the T bead so that its hole is level with the Ch hole.  Pass through same hole in T as you did at the beginning, but in the opposite direction. Pick up 2 R beads.

To make a headband you need 16 flowers. Place the binding wire onto the headband. Wrap the wires around each other approx. four times.  Pass the binding wire through the bottom center of a flower.  Add 1 R8 and 1 R. Return back through the R8 with the wire and tighten with the help of your flat-nosed pliers.  Wind the wire around the headbands three times, and then add another flower. Continue this process until you have added all the flowers. Wrap the end of the binding wire around the headband several times between the binding wire and flowers.

Use as many flowers as you need for the length of your bracelet.  Using a rivet add 1 R8, a flower and then another R8. Form loop with the rivet. Hold the end of the rivet with the flat-nosed pliers and wrap it around the plier tip.  Thread the elastic through the rivet loops. In between each flower add 6 R8 seed beads.  Knot the elastic’s ends together several times and cut off the remaining ends.
