|1) Cut one length of thread, about 4 times the finished length of the project. Fastened that to a fastener in the middle of the thread. That will leave you to work with the strands of thread, each about twice the lenght of your finished piece.
|2) Thread both strands through your first bead. Make a reef knot:
Work the threads left over right and through - tighten the half knot.
Work right over left and through - tighten again.
|3) Add your next bead and repeat the knot as before.
Tape your work to the worktable to anchor it. It will be much easier to work as you go along.
Continue in this way to the end of your project. Think of the tension as your work - keep it constant and even and not too loose nor overly tight.
