Material & Tools

Other materials

A metal piece with a socket or a facet (a pendant, ring, earring, clips, studs), for pendants (a chain, oval, counter-ring, a carabiner)


Glue (hot melt glue or fast drying glue for adhesive materials) a thin sewing needle, a 0.20 mm nylon line, scissors, flat nose pliers


Step 1

A flower made using 6 P

String 6x Pip (P) onto the line. Thread the line through 5 beads one more time and tighten well. String 1x R6, thread the line through the gap between the beads according to the illustration and pass the line through the R6 once again. Thread the line through the last and tighten the stringing well. Tie off the end of the line with two knots, thread the remainder through the nearest holes and cut off the excess (fig. no. 1a + 1b).

A flower made using 8 P

Alternately string 8x P and 8x R10 onto the line. Pass the line through these strung beads and seed beads once again and tighten well. Tie off the end of the line with two knots, thread the remainder through the nearest two holes and cut off the excess (fig. no. 2a + 2b).

A flower made using 12 P

Alternately string 12x P and 12x R10 onto the line. Pass the line through these strung beads and seed beads once again and tighten well. Tie off the end of the line with two knots, thread the remainder through the nearest two holes and cut off the excess (fig. no. 3a + 3b).

Step 4

You can glue the finished flowers onto the facets of metal parts with a diameter of 10 mm, 15 mm or 20 mm (fig. no. 4a). Glue an 8 mm bead to the centre of the flower or you can glue the finished flowers together according to their size (fig. no. 4b). These semi-products can then be used with other metal parts to create, for example, a pendant, a ring or earrings.
