artists tips
Seed beads can vary slightly in size
depending on manufacturers and coatings,
so you may need to adjust the number of
units in Round 1 of the bezels to fit the
stones.
Always err on making the starting round
too large rather than too small; you can add
an extra round to the bezel to secure the
stone, but a too-small starting round will
never sit properly around its edge.

artists tips
You can use 6 lb FireLine to stitch the front
layer, but the 10 lb (thicker) thread makes
the beadwork sturdier.
Take care that the center of each unit in the
front layer is tight; otherwise, the O beads added
in the back layer wont sit on top of the units. Fig. 3: Working Rounds 17
of the back layer
To make it easier to navigate the holes of the
beads, you can bend your needle into a curve;
just be careful not to break it.
Dont forget to step up after each round
in the back layer.

Use new threads to attach the

using the working threads of the

make adjustments to the clasp
