Components

[1] On 1 yd. (.9 m) of thread, pick up a repeating pattern of an 11/0 seed bead and a 6 mm two-hole triangle bead six times, making sure all the triangles are oriented the same way. Tie the beads into a ring with a square knot, leaving a 6-in. (15 cm) tail (Figure 1). Adjust the triangles so the available hole of each sits to the outside of the ring.

[2] Pick up an 11/0, a 6 mm two-hole lentil bead, and an 11/0, and sew through the available hole of the next triangle (Figure 2, a-b). Repeat this stitch to complete the round, and sew through the first 11/0 added in this round (b-c).

[3] Sew through the available hole of the adjacent lentil (Figure 3, a-b). Pick up an 11/0, a triangle, and three 11/0s, and sew through the available hole of the new triangle (b-c). Pick up an 11/0, and sew through the available hole of the next lentil (c-d). Repeat these two stitches to complete the round, and sew through the first 11/0 added in this round (d-e). As you stitch, make sure that each new triangle is pointing in the same direction as the previous triangle. If not, remove the stitch and re-do it with the triangle facing the correct way.

[4] Pick up a 3 mm fire-polished bead, and sew through the next 11/0, lentil, and 11/0 set (Figure 4, a-b). Repeat this stitch to complete the round (b-c).

[5] Sew through the next 3 mm and 11/0 (Figure 5, a-b). Pick up three 11/0s, and sew through the next 11/0, 3 mm, and 11/0 (b-c). Repeat this stitch to complete the round, sewing through just an 11/0 in the final stitch (c-d). Set the working thread aside.

[6] With the tail exiting the front of the component, pick up a 6 mm fire-polished bead, and sew through the opposite triangle. Sew back through the 6 mm and the first triangle again (Figure 6). End the tail but not the working thread.

[7] Repeat steps 1-6 to make a total of six components.
