Step 1

Tie a rocaille onto the end of the line as a stop bead (fig. no. 1a). String 4x PB1 (fig. nos. 1b + 1c). Thread the line through them one more time (fig. nos. 1d + 1e). Tie off the line. Pull the ends into the holes and cut them off (fig. no. 1f). 

Make a total of 19 four-petal flowers. 6x PB1, 8x from PB2 and 5x from PB3.

String 1x IM8, 1x IM4, 1x flower and 1x IM4 onto an eye pin. Tighten (fig. no. 2a). Grip the end of the wire between the points of the needle nose pliers. Twist it around the points. Locate the eye centrally above the hole by gently twisting the wire back at the edge of the hole (fig. no. 2b).

Cut off about 60 cm of wire. Secure the end of the wire by crimping the KR. String 1x IM4, 1x KR, 1x IM6, 1x KR and 16x IM8 in green (fig. no. 4a). String the flowers and string 1x IM6 between them in green and blue alternately (fig. no. 4b). String the second side in the opposite order, this time in blue (fig. no. 4c).
