Procedure:

Step 1: 
The basic part of the necklace consists of sewn flowers made from 4x L (fig. nos. 1a and 1b). String 4x L and thread the line through them one more time (fig. nos. 2a and 2b). After stringing, tie the line off with two knots, pull the ends of the line into the surrounding L and cut it off (fig. no. 3). Sew 25x flowers to create the necklace.

Step 2:
String an H8 on an eye pin from the flat side. Thread the flower through the cup which you have created and additionally string an R8. Shorten the pin with the pliers and create a loop (fig. no. 4). Complete all 25 flowers in this manner.

String an H6 on an eye pin from the flat side and 6x R10 and create a loop (fig. no. 5). You will need 26 of these pins.

Step 4:
Cut off ca 44 cm of memory wire and create a loop at one end. String 90x R8 on the wire. Begin alternately stringing the created pins and the flowers; pin, flower, etc. Then straighten everything (fig. nos. 6a and 6b).

String 90x R8 on the wire and once again straighten the pins and the flowers and tighten the stringing. Cut off any excess wire and create a loop (fig. no. 7). Use the rings to attach the fastening and the adjusting chain (fig. no. 8). Use an eye pin to attach an H6 bead to the end of the adjusting chain (fig. no. 9).
