To 'drape' the beads over the bracket, you need two layers of beads and one bracket
Put one layer of beads underneath the bracket, put one layer of beads over the bracket -- erase on the top bead layer The easiest way to erase is to make a selection of the bracket - then move to the top bead layer - choose it in the layer palette - and erase on the top bead layer. Erasing will happen only inside the selection.
thanks. In this case, it was easy. It was a template followed pretty much as designed. My best stuff starts with templates. The layout may not look anything like the original template when I’m done, but it’s always a great “jumping off” point.
