Sonoran Beads

Step-by-step instructions: 1. Thread 4' of Fireline on a beading needle. Pick up 2 triangle beads and pass back through the first bead on the strand leaving a 6" tail. Settle the second bead next to the first (ladder stitch) and repeat the thread pattern. 2. Pick up another bead and pass down through the second bead and up through the first bead (1st picot). Repeat the thread pattern exiting the bottom of the second bead. 3. Holding the large ring in your non-dominant hand place the picot on the outer edge of the ring and pass your needle through the ring, from back to front, and back up through bead 2 (brick stitch),pulling your thread taut. Pass through the top bead of the picot, down through bead 1, through the ring and back up through bead 1. 4. Pick up 2 beads, pass through the ring and back up through the last bead (2nd picot). Pass through the top bead of the picot, down through bead four and up through bead 5. Pull your thread taut. 5. Repeat step 4 until you have 30 picots on the ring. 6. With your thread exiting through the top of the last bead, pick up one bead, pass down through the first bead on the ring and back up through the last bead, through the top of the picot just made and down through bead 1(31st picot). Pull your thread taut and repeat the thread pattern. Tie a square knot with your working thread and the tail. 7. Pass up through the next bead on the ring, through the top bead of the picot and down through the next bead. Tie a half hitch knot around the thread circling the ring, pass up through the next bead, through the top bead of the picot and down through the next bead. Pass up through the next bead and remove your needle, leaving the working thread attached. 8. Repeat steps 1-7 for the remaining rings, making 20 picots before adding the last bead.

9. When all of the rings are brick stitched use the working threads of each ring to sew them to each other. Place a small ring against the large ring and sew together the top bead of a picot from each ring using a ladder stitch. Be sure to repeat the thread pattern several times since the weight of the necklace will be hanging from these beads. Move to the next bead and repeat the process. 10. Count five over picots on the large ring and attach another small ring in the same manner as the first. 11. Sew a small ring to each small ring making sure you are directly across the ring from where it is attached to the large ring. 12. Weave in any working threads and tails exiting the bottom of a cube and trim. 13. Open a jump ring and slide it into the top bead of a picot on the last small ring directly across from where it is attached to the first small ring. Repeat for the other side. 14. Cut the nylon ribbon in half and pull one piece through one of the jump rings centering it. Determine the length you want your necklace to be and trim off the excess. Tie the two ends together in a tight knot and position the knot in a clamshell ring. Squeeze the clamshell ring until it is tightly closed and attach one side of the toggle clasp to it. Repeat for the other side. Note: Because you are using a fairly thin thread with large holed beads it is important to keep the thread snug as you brick stitch the rings. Repeating the thread pattern through the picots will add strength to them. The more times through the picot the stiffer it will be.
