1. Arrange your art-glass beads and several accent beads on your work surface to give you a rough idea of how you want to organize the necklace. This order may change as you work, but it’s useful as a starting point.
2. On 2-3 yd. (1.8-2.7 m) of conditioned Fireline or thread, attach a stop bead, leaving a 6-in. (15 cm) tail. Pick up about 24 in. (61 cm) of seed beads, strung in ¾-1 1/4-in. (1.9-3.2 cm) sections, interspersing a few of the art-glass beads and other accent beads along the strand (Photo A).
