Kind and Gentle Necklace Tutorial

Designer Tips

  • String your project at the far end of the needle-end cord. When completed, cut from the strand, and use the remainder of the cord for another project.
  • Knotting can be done by hand or with a cord knotter. The key to good knotting is to make sure the knot is as close to the beads as possible, so the beads don'’t move.
