INSTRUCTIONS

Embellishment and finishing

1. Add a new thread to the beginning end of the band. Align an 18 x 13 mm crystal stone on the end scalloped rectangle, and sew up between the two middle columns near a hole in the stone. Sew through the stone, and pick up a 4 mm bicone crystal and an 11/0 cylinder bead. Skip the 11/0, sew back through the 4 mm and the stone, and sew into the beadwork. Sew through the beadwork to exit near the other hole in the stone, and attach it as you did the first. Sew through to the next scalloped rectangle.

2. Work as in step 1 to attach a stone to each scalloped rectangle until one unembellished rectangle remains. 

3. Sew through to the last rectangle. Align two snap halves on the top surface, and sew them down. End the thread. Using the tail at the other end of the base, sew the other snap halves to the underside of the first rectangle, lining them up with the snaps at the other end. End the thread.
