Knotting Pearls

Materials:

Beading needle
Thread
Match or lighter
Piece of felt or foam
Scissors

Instruction:

1. Gather your materials. This is a project you must finish at once because you might lose counting the pearsl you will string. Make sure you have all your materials ready to make this knotting project a lot easier.

2. String the thread into the needle. make sure that the thread is long enough for allowance. make small tight knots after you string each pearls (knot then pearls then knot again).

3. Cut off one of the clasp ends and loop the thread through the clasp end, simple thread the beading needle and thread through the hole you make in the clasp end and reloop back through the loop holein the thread.It should be 1/2 of the clasp is attached. then tie a tight knot to close the clasp end.

4. Remove pearls from the string by cutting the old thread. Do this at the very end of the clasp end, through this the pearls will be string easier on the new thread.

5. String all pearls on the new strand of thread. make sure you have extra thread on and have extra length too. You are now ready to string more pearls on the new starnd of thread.

6. Next step remember that the needle should be removed and a tight double knot tied at the end of the string where the thread should has 2 loose ends. Make sure to do this to prevent your pealrs from slipping off the thread.

7. Starting at the end of the string where the clasp has been looped on, tie a tight knot close to the first pearl then repeat it again.

8. Make sure you tie a tight knot between each pearl, thread on the remaining 1/2 clasp, tie a tight double knot, cut the remaining thread and if using silk thread you must add a tiny dot of super glue or if using synthetic thread, flick with a small flame to melt the small loose ends to lock the ends.
