  • How to make a beaded necklace. Great Embellishments - Step 1
    Step 1

    To make a ribbon flower, thread a
    4mm pearl onto a headpin. Cut 25cm
    of ribbon, fold one end of the ribbon
    in by 1cm. Push the headpin through
    the ribbon so that the fold is on the
    opposite side to the bead. Weave the
    headpin through the ribbon at
    approximately 1cm intervals.

    Push the ribbon along the
    headpin towards the bead as tightly
    as possible. Trim the headpin 1cm
    along from the ribbon, bend into a
    loop and close. This will act as a
    stopper for the ribbon. Repeat to
    make ten more flowers.

    adding a flower to each connector
    until you have added the remaining
