Instructions

Legend: A = Size 8/0 coloured seed bead, B= Size 8/0 Matte metallic gold seed bead, C= Size 11/0 Matte metallic gold seed bead


1. Take a 30cm length of stretched beading thread, thread 4A, 1B, move along so you have a 15cm tail (photo 1). We used black beading thread so the images are clearer for these instructions. But we used white beading thread to make our necklace.
2. Loop your needle around, and pass back through the first A you threaded in step 1 (photo 2)

3. Pick up 2As, loop your needle around and pass through the last A you picked up in step 1 (photo 3)
 
4. Pass back through the 1 B (photo 4)
5. Pass up through the A you passed through in step 2 (photo 4)
6. Adjust your threads so they are neat and evenly spaced as possible, but do not pull too tight. Pick up 1C, and pass through the next 1A (photo 6)
7. Repeat step 6 five times (photo 7) sew in and secure your thread
8. Repeat steps 1-7 sixteen more times for a 16 inch necklace. We used a bead mix, and chose a different colour seed bead for each daisy. 
9. Take 1m of stretched beading thread, add a stop bead to the end, leaving a 15cm tail. Thread 5C, 1A, 5C, take one of your daisies, pass through 1C, 1A, 1C (photo 8)
10. Repeat step 9 sixteen more times. Thread 5c,1A,5C
11. Pick up 1B, pass back through the last C you threaded in the previous step (photo 9). Pull to a suitable tension.
.
12.  Pass through the length of the necklace to strengthen.
13. Repeat step 11 at the other end of your necklace. Secure and weave in your threads.

14. Using chain nosed pliers, open up a jump ring use this to attach your trigger to the end 1B, close your jump ring. Repeat at the other end, but with just the jump ring (photo 10)
15. Trim the tails of your daisies (photo 11)
You're finished! 

How to secure your thread 

To secure your thread, pass the needle under a thread between beads and pull through until there is a small loop remaining.  Pass over the original thread and through the loop and pull tight ensuring the knot forms between the beads.  Pass through a few more beads and repeat.  Pass through some more beads and trim the thread
