Step one: Cut a length of Beadalon memory wire gold-plated flat ring approximately 3 to 3 1/2 rings in length.
Step two: Add a dab of adhesive to one end of the memory wire and place the Beadalon silver-plated 5x4mm flat memory wire end cap on the end of the wire. Allow to dry.
Step three: Slide nine Miyuki 8/0 metallic rainbow matte turquoise/light green Delicas onto the wire.
Step four: Slide one Beadalon gold-plated 8mm round flat memory wire embellishment onto the memory wire. Add a dab of adhesive to the embellishment and add the 12mm Czech glass leaf foiled back cabochon in light amethyst AB. Allow to dry.
Step five: Slide approximately 43 to 44 seed beads onto the wire, followed by a second memory wire embellishment. The leaves should sit back to back, so adjust the number of seed beads if necessary. Add adhesive to the embellishment and add the 12mm Czech glass leaf foiled back cabochon in matte olivine AB. Allow to dry.
Step six: Add nine beads to the memory wire. Trim the end of the wire if necessary, so that the ends line up at the bottom of the ring. Use adhesive to add an end cap to the end of the wire and allow to dry.
