So now we're ready to assemble. Again, my ball is 1 1/2". If yours is larger, you will need to make adjustments. I've made 4 medallions. To attach them, you'll need a top ring around the ball. Since there are four medallions, the number of beads in the top ring should be divisible by four. I have 24 beads in my ring around the top of the ball.
Now we'll divide that 24 bead ring by 4. Add 7 beads to the thread and stitch through every 6th bead, 4 times.
after adding the 4th group of 7 beads, work down 3 of the first 7 bead group. Stitch through one of the medallions and back through the next 3 beads. Through the 6th bead again and down through 3 beads of the next swag.

I run a gardening co-op for purchasing plants and have a great time doing that. I've been making ceramics for almost 30 years and now trying my hand at a little sculpting with paper clay.
