I love this. It is so awesome! I have been trying to make one that is very similiar. Hard to keep the beads so straight in line on the Medallion. How do you do it? Beautiful?

thanks....i just started 6 months ago , after 30 years of not doing them.

this was made from size 10/0 czech beads.

when i put the 1st. bead down , i go though it 2 times. than i add 3 beads and than  bring the needle down and  up .   tie down between the 2nd and 3 rd bead by crossing over the thread. than i come up again between  the 2nd and 1 st beads and than go though the 1 st bead. that's all i do.  i hope this helps to get you lines line up.

one other thing , if you find that your coming up little short to the next bead . you can adjust where they line up by adjusting your tie down string out a little more to the 2nd bead. this will  shift the 2nd and 1 st bead over a bit.... i hope i explain it right...good luck
