    Question 2 months ago

    I am confused as to where I need to go once I start the yellow beads. I need some help with this as I am wanting to make these for a coworker that is getting married next month.

    It appears that she threaded her wire through the bottom 10 mm pearl bead and then put a yellow 4 mm bead on each end of the wire. Then she put the wire up through the two 8 mm beads that are beside/on top of the 10 mm center bead. She threaded the two wire ends through the top 10 mm bead (crossing them, similar to the first step process). Then she put two 4 mm yellow beads on both ends of the wire.
    Repeat the process, going to the next 10 mm bead and so on until you have a ball shape.
