    Trimmings

    On the remaining wire end, alternating between ruby and white, pick up about 20 rocailles. 3 or 4 branches up from the bottom, on the opposite side to where you started the trimming, wrap around a wire section on the main body of the tree. Pick up another 12 rocailles. Again, wrap around a wire section on the start side another 3 or 4 branches up. Pick up another 5 rocailles. Wrap on the opposite side several times. Trim off any excess.
