.

13. Repeat step 11 at the other end of your necklace. Secure and weave in your threads.

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
