Instructions

Finished Size: 7 5/8"

Step 1:
Use 1 bobbin to string the Red Jasper Wire. Use 1 bobbin to string the Black Onyx wire. Use 1 bobbin to string the Bronze wire. Use the Bronze wire to string 12 brass pineapple beads. Place a Bead Stopper on the end of the Bronze wire. Use 1 bobbin to string 24" of 1/2" ribbon. Repeat. Use 1 bobbin to string 24" of 1/4" ribbon. Repeat.



Step 2: Remove the Bead Stopper. Use all three wire ends to string 1 crimp tube. Place the tube about 3" from the ends of the wires and crimp.



Step 3: Use all four ribbon ends to tie an overhand knot around the crimp tube.



Step 4: Follow manufacturer's instructions to place the wires and ribbons on the Diva board. Braid the wires and ribbons together for 5 1/2" or until all the brass pineapple beads are used, making sure to place 1 brass pineapple bead into the braid every time the brass wire is moved around the Diva board.



Step 5: Remove the wires and ribbons from the bobbins. Use all three wire ends to string 1 crimp tube. Snug the tube at the very end of the braid, and crimp.



Step 6: Use the ribbon ends to tie an overhand knot around the crimp tube.



Step 7: Carefully cut the Black Onyx wire ends and the Red Jasper wire ends from the ends of the braid. Use 1 Bronze wire end to string 1 crimp tube and the brass "believe" ring. Pass back through the tube and crimp. Trim the wire end. Divide the ribbons in half and use them to tie a square knot around the crimp tube. Trim the ribbon ends to about 1/2". Use 1 1/2" of the 1/4" ribbon to tie a surgeon's knot around the brass ring on one side of the beading wire. Repeat on the other side of the beading wire. Attach the etched jump ring to the brass "believe" ring.



Step 8: Use the remaining Bronze wire end to string 1 crimp tube and the brass hook. Pass back through the tube and crimp. Trim the wire end. Divide the ribbons in half and use them to tie a square knot around the crimp tube. Trim the ribbon ends to about 1/2".



Step 9: Use 1 head pin to string 1 black CZ rondelle and form a wrapped loop. Repeat. Use 1 head pin to string 1 champagne CZ rondelle and form a wrapped loop. Attach the eye pin to the three dangles just formed. Use the eye pin to string 1 brass pineapple bead and 1 champagne CZ rondelle; form a wrapped loop that attaches to the loop of the brass hook.
