3rd, before going to the other glass pearl, add 3 seedbeads to your needle and thread to fill up the open space between the glass pearls;
4th, when you have reached the second glass pearl, repeat step 7 to 9 . Repeat these steps for every glass pearl until each glass pearl has a nice seedbead-surrounding.

3rd, if you think your project is woven enough and thus solid, then make superior knots on the back of the filigree pendant and optionally glue this superknot;
