Step 1

Cut a long arm span of thread and thread on your needle. Pick up x14 Seed Beads and tie in a loop, then go back through the beads in the loop to reinforce.

Step 2

String the beads that form one side of the necklace. I followed the pattern; x2 Seeds, x1 4mm Pearl, x2 Seeds, x1 4mm Pearl, x2 Seeds, x1 Bicone until x6 Bicones have been added.

Step 3

Next string x2 Seed Beads, x1 4mm Pearl,
x2 Seeds, x1 4mm Pearl, x1 Seed, x1 6mm Pearl, x1 Seed, x1 6mm Pearl, x1 Seed, x1 6mm Pearl, x3 Seed.

(D) Pick up x19 Seeds and x1 4mm Pearl, go through the last x5 Seeds added.
(E) Pick up x6 Seed Beads, Count x11 Seeds back from the x19 added in the last step and go through the 12th added forming a centre point. Pick up x14 Seeds, x1 6mm Pearl, go back through the last 7.

Step 6

(F) Pick up x2 Seeds, go through the x5 Seeds that are before the point on the right hand side, at the bottom of the 4mm Pearl. Go throught the centre point then the next x9 seeds on the top left hand side. Pick up x1 4mm Pearl, go through the x5 Seeds that sit to left hand side of this bead.
(G) Pick up x1 Seed, go through x5 seed beads before the centre point that sit on the top left hand side above the 6mm pearl. Pass through the centre point and the next x9 seeds on the top right hand side, above the first added pearl.

Step 8

Cut a new arm span of thread and knot under the seed next to the top bicone. Pick up x2 Seeds, x1 6mm Pearl, x1 Seed, x1 6mm Pearl, x1 Seed, x1 6mm Pearl, x1 Seed.

Step 9

Continue adding beads so that the second side of the necklace matches the first; 1x 4mm Pearl, x2 Seeds, x1 4mm Pearl, x1 Bicone, x2 Seeds until x6 bicones have been added.
