A half knot is the same knot that you make when tying your shoe. To make a square knot, tie two half knots in opposite directions, ie. right over left and left over right.
Bracelet How to:
1. Cut a 9" length of 1mm Elasticity™. Place a piece of adhesive tape over one end to prevent the beads from sliding off. String beads as follows: 8mm purple, silver spacer, 8mm purple, silver spacer, 8mm purple, bell cap, 12mm purple, bell cap. Repeat the beading pattern four times.
2. Remove the adhesive tape. Tie the ends in a square knot. Place a drop of glue on the knot; let it dry. Cut off any excess cord, then tuck the knot into the nearest large-hole bead.
Earrings How To:
1. String beads as follows onto a head pin: bicone, bell cap, 8mm bead, bell cap. Use round nose pliers to make a loop above the top bead. Wrap the extra wire around the base of the loop. Attach the loop to the lower loop on an ear wire.
