2nd, slide a brown glass bead to each wire, and cross the wires through another brown glass bead and tighten to form the second square pattern;
3rd, thread 8 gold seed beads to the lower wire, and cross the ends again through a brown glass bead and tighten up.
Step 3: Bead the Rest 3 Units to Form a Square
1st, slide a brown glass bead to each wire and cross the ends through a brown glass bead and tighten just as what you did in step 1;
2nd, bead another small brown square pattern and add the gold seed beads as the procedures in step 1;
