1. On 1 yd. (.9 m) of thread, pick up a repeating pattern of an 11/0 seed bead and a crescent bead eight times, making sure all the crescents point the same way (photo a). Leaving a 6-in. (15 cm) tail, tie the beads into a ring (photo b), and then retrace the thread path through all the beads. Exit a crescent.
