Step 5
Take the weaving wire down behind the 3 base wires (4th, 3rd, and 2nd). Bring it thru between the 1st and 2nd wire. Wrap the weaving wire around the 2nd and 3rd wires once.

Step 6
Take the weaving wire down behind the wires to the bottom and wrap up around the 1st and 2nd base one once.

Step 9
Cut off the beginning weaving wire tail and smooth down with pliers. Bend the 1st base wire at a 90 degree angle away from the other base wires right at the beginning of the weave. Put the bead on the bent wire.

Step 10
Bend the weave around the bead. Bend the wire going thru the bead right where it comes out of the bead to lay beside the rest of the wires coming out of the weave on that side of the bead. Bend the two wires farthest from the bead (on the side of the bead with 5 wires) off to the side.
