Directions

Take 24 inches of the monofilament. String on 3qty. 11/0 seed beads, a fire polish bead, and 3 more 11/0 seed beads. Move the beads to the center of the line and then criss-cross the ends of the line through another fire polish bead, so that you end up with 2 equal lengths of line. Hold this circle of beads so that the 2 lines are at the top of the circle.
On the right line add 5qty. 15/0 seed beads. Bring the line from left to right back through the first fire polish bead (this is the bead that is at the bottom of the circle), you should see a line of bead going across the circle at this point. Now add 5 more 15/0 seed beads to the line and bring the line from left to right through the second fire polish bead (the bead that is at the top of the circle). Now you should see a criss-cross line of 15/0 beads between the two fire polish beads.
On the right line, add on a 5mm bicone and 4qty. 11/0 seed beads. Bring the line through the bicone again so that the seed beads circle around the bicone.
Repeat on the left line.
Criss-cross the lines through one side of the 2 hole bead.
On the right line add 8qty. 15/0 seed beads, pass the line from left to right through the second fire polish bead. Now add on another 8 qty. 15/0 seed beads and bring the line from left to right through the 2 hole bead (same side as before) so that you end up with a crisscross of 15/0 seed beads between the second fire polish and the 2 hole bead.
On the right line add 8 qty. 11/0 seed beads. Circle back through the 5th seed bead.
Repeat on the left line.
Add on 4qty. 11/0 seed beads to each line and then criss-cross through the other side of the 2 hole bead.
On the right line add on a 5mm bicone and 4qty. 11/0 beads. Bring the line through the bicone again so that the seed beads circle around the bicone.
Repeat on the left line.
Crisscross the lines through a firepolish bead.
On the left line add 8qty. 15/0 seed beads and pass the line from right to left through the end of the 2 hole bead. Add on another 8qty. 15/0 seed beads to the line and pass the line from right to left through the 3rd fire polish bead. You should see a criss0cross of 15/0 seed beads between the 2 hole bead and the fire polish bead.
Add 3qty. 11/0 seed beads to each line and criss-cross through a fire polish bead.
On the left line add 5qty. 15/0 seed beads and pass the line from right to left through the 3rd fire polish bead. Add on another 5qty. 15/0 seed beads and pass the line from right to left through the 4th fire polish bead. You should see a criss-cross of 15/0 seed beads between the last 2 fire polish beads.
Add 2qty. 11/0 seed beads to each line and criss-cross through another 11/0 seed bead.
Add 1qty. 11/0 seed bead to each line and criss-cross through another 11/0 seed bead.
Repeat until you have a length that will fit your finger.
Add 2 seed beads to each line, one line through the first fire polish bead and then tie a knot. Now take the 2 lines and pass them both through the first fire polish bead. Tie another knot with the 2 lines and pass the lines through adjacent seed beads then trim the ends.
