Step 1: Gather Your Supplies
Prepare your workstation with essential tools: beadwax, a beading needle, thread, embroidered scissors, a lighter, an array of beads, and, of course, the desired shape for beading.

Step 2: Prepare the Thread
Measure out the thread and coat it in beadwax. Thread your needle and gather four beads onto its tip, sliding them to the thread's end while leaving a small tail.

Step 3: Forming the Foundation
Pass the needle back through the first two beads, ensuring the tail remains secure. This forms the initial structure of your design.

Step 4: Building Layers
Thread the needle through the second row of beads, stabilizing the foundation. Align the beads along the metal design and secure the thread around the metal, then proceed back through the first row of beads to reinforce the connection.

Step 5: Expanding the Design
Continue adding beads to fill the row, interweaving the thread around the metal and beads. Repeat the process for subsequent rows until the desired pattern emerges.

Step 6: Transitioning Colors
To add visual interest, switch colors by seamlessly blending them into the design. Execute the same threading technique to infuse a new hue and depth to your creation.

Step 7: Final Touches
Secure the thread by threading it back in the opposite direction. Tie off the string, trim any excess, and gently burn off remaining threads for a polished finish.
