Exit your needle from one Size 11/0 seed bead added between two FP beads, as shown. Step 9 PNT the next FP. PU one Size 15/0, one Size 11/0, one Size 15/0, one HT, one Size 15/0, one Size 11/0, Size 15/0 seed bead and then take your needle through to the next FP, Size 11/0 seed bead and FP bead. Work in this manner around your bezel edge, making sure that all HT beads are sitting on the top side (Diagram 9). Step 10 Take your needle to the first HT you added in the previous Step. Stitch back through its other hole. PU one Size 11/0 seed bead, then stitch through one HT you added in Step 7, through its bottom hole. PNT the next 3mm pressed bead and adjacent HT, then PU one Size 11/0 seed bead. PNT the HT (through its empty hole) you added last in the previous Step. PU another Size 11/0 seed bead, then connect it to the next HT from Step 7. Continue in this manner around your bezel – now you’ve connected all HT beads from Step 9 to the bottom layer. Pull the beads firmly together, so that your pendant will sit correctly (Diagram 10). 10
