I love this knotted technique. It makes the bracelet lay so nicely and looks great with these beads!
- Big beads with a big hole. I used: Green & Clear Recycled Glass Beads 13-14mm, Africa from Happy Mango Beads
- Cord that will fit through the holes in the beads. I used 1mm waxed cotton cord.
- 2 cord end crimps
- Lobster clasp
- A few 7mm jump rings
- Chain nose pliers
- Bent nose or another pair of pliers
Cut a piece of cord to about 24 inches.
Make a knot on the other side of the bead. Make the knot very close the bead. I do this by holding the loop of the knot close to the bead while pull the end slowly and making sure the knot ends up right against the bead.
Alternatively, you could make the bead around an awl (or there is a special tool for knotting) and use that to pull the knot near the bead.
You can make a necklace with the same technique, just use more cord.
