Assembly:
STEP1: Cut a piece of sewing thread about 36" long. Put thread on sewing needle and knot the 2 ends together.

STEP 2: Insert needle & thread through back side of rim of crochet work just above, lined up with, a sc, between the shells, of the very last round. Pull the thread through at this spot. String on 1 lavender and 5 white pearls, then one more lavender bead. (Insert needle in next spot, just above, the next sc, between the shells, of the very last round from the front to the back. Pull thread to tighten the beads against the crochet work to form a gentle swoop. Insert needle back in same spot, just a tiny bit away from the same exact spot to lock in the stitch. Bring needle back through lavender bead from back to front.)

STEP 3: String on 5 white pearls, then 1 more lavender pearl. Repeat between () of STEP 2 with each shell around. When you get back to the beginning, do not put the last lavender bead but insert your needle through the first lavender bead from front to back. Secure thread on back side of your work.

STEP 4: Sew the split 8mm rings to opposite sides of the top of the rim just above a lavender bead. Use several overhand stitches to secure it in place. These rings is what you will attache the bracelet to.

STEP 5: Glue the top round of crochet work to the rim of the clear container with the hot glue. I would start with tacking the section where the rings are on opposite sides of the basket first then easing the rest of the work onto the container rim. Put a bead of glue just under the rim of the container as you glue the crochet work to the container. Set basket aside for now and work on the bracelet next.

Bracelet Assembly
String on one crimp bead and the clasp onto the 12" wire. Bring short end through the crimp bead and crimp the bead into place close to the clasp. Follow instructions for crimping beads. Cover the crimp bead with the crimp bead cover.
Then string on the rest of the beads in the following order.
1 purple 4mm pearl, 1white 6mm pearl, 1 purple 4mm pearl,
1paper or accent bead,
1 purple 4mm pearl, 1white 6mm pearl, 1 purple 4mm pearl,
1paper or accent bead,
1 purple 4mm pearl, 1white 6mm pearl, 1 purple 4mm pearl,
1 8mm, 1lg oval, 1 8mm,
1 purple 4mm pearl, 1white 6mm pearl, 1 purple 4mm pearl,
1paper or accent bead,
1 purple 4mm pearl, 1white 6mm pearl, 1 purple 4mm pearl,
1paper or accent bead,
1 purple 4mm pearl, 1white 6mm pearl, 1 purple 4mm pearl.
Put the 2nd crimp and other clasp on and finish as you did for the other end.
Clip the lobster clasps on each split ring on basket for handle.
