|1) Attach your fasterner at one end. Thread your first bead and make your double overhand knot: wrap thread around your finger and take the end back through the loop twice (instead of once as with the single overhand knot). Do not tighten fully yet ...|
|2) Slide & Tighten: Put a strong, blunt needle into the knot. Use the needle to slide the knot back towards the bead. Tighten the knot and remove the needle as you tighten.|
|3) Continue this way - string a bead & make a knot between each bead. Keep spacing and tension even by sliding the each knot with the needle.|
