How do you tie a bead in place?
Push the first bead up to the clasp and string through it with the right-hand needle. Tie another half-hitch as before always with the right-hand cord. Pull the knot snug. Push the second bead into place, string through it with the right-hand cord, knot as before, and pull snug.
How do you secure string beads?
Tie one knot to secure the beads in place. Tie this knot as close to the end of the beading as possible to keep the beads from sliding around on the string and revealing the cord beneath. To position the knot as snugly as possible, form the knot loosely, then slide it into place as you tighten it.
