a carabiner; a counterpiece; an oval; a metal crimp bead; a two-cup tip (depending on the method of fastening); a 0.38 mm wire; a thin needle; a 0.20 mm nylon line; scissors; snipping pliers; flat nose pliers (for flattening the end of the line and closing the ovals); pliers with rounded points; a ruler pro male vily pomucky

 

The procedure:

Step 1:

The flower. Alternately string 5x Pip and 5x R10 and then thread the line through them one more time. Start tying the ends of the line, create a strong knot and insert it in the centre of the P; thanks to its shape, it will hold its position without being sewn in. Tie the second and third knots. Pull the ends of the line into the holes of the surrounding beads. You need 5 flowers on the necklace.

Step 2:

Stringing the flowers. Cut off about 55 cm of the wire. String the flowers with 10x R10 between them. String the flowers using the hole in the P so that two petals are facing upwards and three downwards. Monitor the direction of the stringing and the orientation of the P. Always string them from the rear. Do not overly tighten the stringing. Let the R10 slide freely.

Step 3:

Finishing up. You do not need to string anything onto the remainder of the wire at the sides. Cut the wire 13 cm from the flowers on both sides of the necklace in order to ensure a total length of 40 cm. String the hole of the two-cut tip onto the end of the wire. Crimp the crimp bead onto the end of the wire and close the two-cut tip. Twist a loop in the wire from the two-cut tip. Hang the fastening on it using the ovals. The carabiner should be on the right and the counterpiece should be on the left.

Otherwise, you can shorten the wire. String 13 cm of R10. String the metal crimp bead at the end. Return the wire to the metal crimp bead. Thread it through the pair of R10. The wire will form a loop. Crimp the metal crimp bead and cut off the excess wire. Attach the fastening to the loops.
