By missing out a bead on the BBB you can make room for a jewellery finding or stem/leaf, but the daisy will look just as good as an embellishment on clothes or bags etc.

    1. Yes that is right the beads are on the ring you are making and then you slide a bead from the core thread (shuttle) to meet the three and it makes a point
