  3. Attach small binder clip or bead stopper 2-3” from one end of stretch cord.
  4. Determine desired length of bracelet, then arrange remaining beads, seed beads and faceted spacers in desired order on work surface or beading board, ending with one faceted spacer.

  6. Remove bead stopper and tie ends together in a Surgeon’s Knot. (Fig 1) Tighten securely, pulling cords from all directions to make sure knot is secure.
