Sun How to Bead

Step 1: You will need:
— wire
— orange or yellow round seed beads 8/0.

Step 2: String one bead and pass the thread back up through the bead to secure it.

Step 3: String eight beads. Separate the last six beads.

Step 4: String one more bead.

Step 5: Pass the thread back up through the previous six beads, except for the last one. The first ray is complete!

Step 6: Pick up three beads.

Step 7: Pick up three beads again and separate them from the previous three beads. Then string one bead.

Step 8: Pass the thread back up through the previous three beads to make a small ray.

Step 9: Repeat the steps 2-8 five times to make the rest of the rays.

Step 10: Pass the thread through the first bead and through the loop several times to secure the pattern.

Step 11: The sun is complete!
