Project Instructions

Insert one pearl into the wire mesh tube and push to the middle.

Make a square knot in the mesh on both sides of the pearl, leaving enough slack in the mesh around the pearl to pull the mesh into a small oval casing.

Working from the middle out, repeat to add pearls between knots along the ribbon, pulling the mesh into small ovals along the way.

Leave about 1½" of ribbon at each end after the last knots. Insert one pearl, then crimp on a fold-over ribbon crimp. Repeat for the other end.

Use pliers to open and close jump rings to add a clasp.
