Level of difficulty (Beginner)

Time – Less than 10 minutes per bracelet

Tip: Stretch cord before stringing your beads.  This will help maintain the shape of your bracelet. Be sure to measure your wrist to insure a proper fit. A great alternative to the overhand knot is the surgeon’s knot.

When using super glue only dab the knot. If you get super glue on the actual cord it will cause it to break over time. My favorite is gel super glue – easy to control!
