Materials and tools:

PRECIOSA Ripple™ (Rip)
111 01 351; 12 mm; 00030/98548; 100x

PRECIOSA Rocailles (R6), (R8)
331 19 001; 6/0; 8/0; 59142

a spiral silk cord; crocheting yarn; a 1.25 mm hook; a fastening; a chain; eye pins; connecting rings; a Big Eye needle

Step 1:
Firstly, string all the beads onto the crocheting yarn in the following order using the Big Eye needle: 18x R8 and then 6x R6. Then crochet 2x R6, 1x rear-facing Rip, 2x R6 and 1x front-facing Rip until you have strung all 100 Rip. Complete the stringing in the same way as it started: 6x R6 and the last 18x R8 (fig. nos. 1-3).

Step 2:
Next, you need to crochet a tube with firm wall of 6 beads. Crochet the PRECIOSA Ripple™ one after the other (fig. nos.  4-6) until you have used them all up.

Step 3:
This will result in a tube which is about 18 cm long (fig. no. 7). Cut off two pieces of spiral cord (ca 13 cm) and sew them to the ends of the crocheted tube (fig. no. 8). Sew a band of R8 using the hand-weave technique (fig. no. 9).

Step 4:
The sewn band is used to cover the point of the join (fig. no. 10). Connect an eye pin to the second end of the spiral cord (fig. no. 11). Use the same technique as in the previous step to sew on one band - cap (fig. no. 12). String 6 mm of cut beads on the end of the eye pin and use needle-nose pliers to make eyes to attach the fastening (fig. no. 13).
