Linking the Rings 

Step 13

Connect adjacent bead rings with two 8mm metal rings. Open the metal ring. Thread the rocaille of both bead rings and close the metal ring. Divide the bead rings visually into two sides. Use the spaces between them to link or add to the bead rings. Three C1 rings will be at the top, four will be at the bottom. Divide the C2 rings. Two C3 rings will be at the top, three will be at the bottom.

Cut off 30 cm of ribbon. Thread through the outer rings. Adjust the ribbon so that the necklace is hanging in the middle evenly. Wrap the ends of the ribbon with the thin tailor’s thread. Tighten the thread and tie it off. Cut off the excess tailor’s thread. Put some glue into one barrel end cap. Place one thread-wound ribbon end into the cap. Allow to dry. Repeat with the other ribbon end and cap.
