  1. I am an absolute newbie at this and I cant express how Grateful I am for this video. Living in Tucson we have so many beads and with the help of this video I was able to grab loose beads at the gem show and make my own bracelets! Thank You!!!

  2. Great tutorial. New at bead making. Been watching a few videos for tips. Your tutorial is very helpful. Have you made waste beads, if so, is there a tutorial? Thanks a million!

  3. I followed this exact technique but I have a problem with the cord ends peeking through the beads when the bracelet gets put on and off. The bracelet obviously has to stretch to put on, and then the ends wind up showing through. I had to cut them close to the knot which I didn’t want to do for fear of it coming out eventually, even with the glue on the knot. Any suggestions? Or am I doing something wrong?

  4. Do you have a knot that can be created when the beads you are using holes are too small to double loop back through. The type of beads they are the holes cannot be enlarged at all. Do you have any tips for a tie that won't snap in this case?

  5. I did this technique, but the only problem is once the bracelet is worn, the ends of the cord start poking through the beads just from putting the bracelet on and off. I made one for my husband, happened to look at it on his wrist, and the end of one of the cords was sticking out!

  6. This is one of the best video I watched so far for bracelets! I bought some soft cord yesterday and somewhat did the same technique but I pulled mine too tight. So I will make another one and try again. I also love those needles you used too..it will make my bracelet making faster. Thank you so much for this video!

  7. I am curious what kind of nut you used. I was taught a square knot which goes left over right side of the strings and right over left. You called yours an overhand. This was not clearly explained. You used materials that I have never used so I feel like my questions here we’re not answered. And it looks likeOthers on this thread did not get your answers to
