Start by making a ladder base. Make a ring of 1 fire polish, 3 seed beads, 1 fire polish, 3 seeds.Leave a tail long enough to weave back in, bring the needle and thread back through the first fire polish bead, the 3 seeds, and down through the second fire polish, add 3 seeds, 1 fire polish, 3 seeds, back through the second fire polish in the last loop, through the first 3 seed beads added, up through the fire polish, add 3 seed beads, 1 fire polish, 3 seed beads, up though the fire polish from the previous ring, back through the first 3 seeds added, down through the fire polish,add 3 seed beads, 1 fire polish, 3 seed, down through the fire polish, through the seed beads and back up through the fire polish. Wow! Text instructions for a ladder are wordy!!





Go back through the first and second top seedbeads on the ladder, then add 5 seed beads. The middle one is shown in a different color because thatīs how I made mine. Pass needle and thread through the middle bead in the next 3 seed bead space, add 5 more seed beads, then pass through the next middle in a 3 bead space, bring your needle and thread out of that bead, and up through the last 3 of the beads you just added.





Add 3 seed beads, pass needle and thread through the center bead of the next loop, add 3 more seed beads, pass needle and thread through the top bead in the next loop. Bring the needle and thread back through the last 2 beads you just added.






Add 5 seed beads, and pass needle and thread through the center bead of the next loop.
