Make the first row using the ladder stitch starting at the point 1of the grid. Lock the first bead in position by going through it 2 times. Thread a new bead and go through the first one, position the second bead et go through the first and second beads two times. Repeat with the next pearls of the first row until the end of that row.
Lower part of the cloud :
We will start this part from point 2 of the grid. To do so, go through the second bead on the sharp side of the cloud (1). Continue by making a decrease. To do so, thread on the first two beads of the row (2) and pass the needle between the third and fourth beads of the previous row (3). Pull the thread (4).
Go upwards through the second bead (5), pull the thread and position the second bead correctly. Go downwards through the first bead and pull the thread (6). Go upwards through the second bead again (7) and pull the thread. Beads are getting aligned (8) in position.
Thread one bead, pass the needle between the two beads of the previous row (1). Go upwards through the new bead (2) et and pull the thread to position the bead correctly (3).
A few particular points to start a row:
At the bottom of the cloud, position 5 beads to fix the jump rings later on. To do so, you just have to create a loop between the two beads of the previous row (see below). You can go through this new bead twice to give it more stiffness.
Once you have reached the bottom of the beadwork, weave your way through it to start again from point 3 of the grid and make the upper part of the cloud.
Weaving the upper part :
You will use here decreases but also some increases.To make an increase, thread 2 beads on and go through the first and second beads of the previous row (1). Go upwards through the second bead and pull the thread (2).
Once the beadwork is done, weave through it to block your thread. Do it also with the remaining part of your start thread.
Cut 2x 20cm of rose gold chain. Add open jump rings to each extremity of the chain and fix them to the cloud (1). On the first chain, fix the clasp and on the other one fix the extension chain using your pliers (2). Then cut 5 pieces of fine chain in different lengths (between 3 and 5 cm) and fix them using another ring into the bottom beads we prepared for this use (3).
Finally, fix the crystals to the extremities of the fine chains using another jump ring.
