Quick Project Steps

1. Put a stop bead onto the thread using an 11/0 that will be incorporated into the project. Place a gemstone inside a halo bead and thread through them. Pick up three 11/0s, go back through the halo and gemstone. Pick up two 11/0s and thread back through the stop bead and halo/gemstone. Bring the needle back through the three 11/0s and pick up twelve 15/0s and thread through the first 11/0 on the other side of the halo.
2. Watch the Firmament necklace tutorial with Anna to see how to complete the pattern of Gemstones and seed beads.

Tie a knot and go back down through the project a little and burn the ends of the thread. Add a jump ring and lobster clasp to the wire guard.
