Cut 2 pieces of purple petersham ribbon, each 35 cm (14 ins) long. Sew ribbons to centres of narrow edges of necklace. Trim remaining ribbon ends to angles.
Mark the centre of the necklace. Beginning here, sew beads along the ch-foundation, as follows: Sew 1 artifical pearl to the centre, then sew alternately 1 bugle bead and 1 artifical pearl along both sides of centre. Sew a total of 6 artificial pearls to both sides of centre, then sew only bugle beads to the ch-foundation, to the end of the orange area. Above each artificial pearl, sew 1 teardrop bead, vertically. On both sides of teardrop beads, sew a line of bugle beads, parallel to the first line of bugle beads, to end of the orange area. Then sew a 3rd line of bugle beads, spaced the same distance below the 1st line. Sew the coins to the necklace, below the artificial pearls.
