- Using flush cutters, cut a 30 inch length of gold beading wire.
- String a crimp tube, followed by the loop of the TierraCast flower button. Take your wire back through the crimp tube and pull snug. Crimp the crimp tube using crimping pliers. Leave the wire tail there and begin stringing your beads over it, to strengthen the strand.
- String your beads in the following order: 5 long oval gemstone mix beads, 28 turquoise round beads, 5 long oval gemstone mix beads. Then string 1 gold square bead and 1 green chalcedony nugget bead, and repeat that pattern 4 more times. Then string 1 more gold square bead.
- Once all of your beads are on, string another crimp tube. Then string 28 gold seed beads. Take your wire back through the crimp tube and pull snug. Crimp the crimp tube using crimping pliers. Thread 1 inch of your wire tail through the last few beads strung, and then cut off the excess wire with flush cutters.
