Using a size 12 needle, put a stop bead on about three feet of thread. Create a ladder stitch by adding two beads, bring the needle back around and through the first bead. Sew back through the second bead and add a third bead and back down the second bead. Then up through the third bead picking up a fourth bead and back down the third.
