5 mm rings (thin – 14x and thick – 16x); an adjusting chain; a carabiner

Tools

A thin needle; a 0.20 mm nylon line; scissors; flat-nose pliers; snipping pliers

Procedure

The C pressed beads are in two rows. Keep an eye on the way the front and back of the beads are turned during stringing. The layout of the C is reminiscent of a brick bond.

Step 1

Cut off about 150 cm of nylon line (the length of an arm span). Start sewing in the middle of the line. You will then continue to the left and the right.

Step 2

String 6x C turned alternately to the right and the left. String 6x R. Thread the line through the second hole of the lower C. Add 1x C into the three gaps.

Step 3

Thread the line through the second hole of the top C. String 1x C into the two gaps. Thread the line through the lower C. String 8x R. Thread the line through the hole of the C. String 1x C into the two gaps.

Step 5

Thread the line through the second hole of the top C. String 8x R. Thread the line through the hole in the C. Thread the line through the R and C one more time.

Step 7

Thread the left-hand side of the nylon line back to the middle through the holes in the C. Add rocaille loops when returning. The top one consists of 5x R. The side loops from the top point  – 2. string 7x R (it consists of a total of 9x R), 4. string 6x R (it consists of a total of 9xs R), 6. string 5x R (it consists of a total of 6x R).

Step 8

Proceed in the same way on the right-hand half. Tie off the line and pull the ends into the holes.

Step 9

Thread the thin rings onto 14x T. Hang 13 on the lower R loops using the thicker rings.

Step 10

Cut off 18 cm and 26 cm of chain. Use rings to hang the shorter chain on the right-hand side and the longer chain on the left-hand side. Attach a carabiner and the last T to the ends of the chain.
