How to Tie a Beaded Bracelet

By Ariana Cherry-Shearer

Creating a handmade bracelet is fun, but sometimes the last step of the project can be difficult. When you tie your finished bracelet together, you want to make sure that it will keep the bracelet tied so that it does not come apart. By learning just a few basic skills, you will find that it will become easier to tie your beaded bracelet.

String all of your selected beads onto your beading thread. Be sure that the design is completed the way that you would like it to be.

Leave enough string to tie a secure knot. Tie the string into a couple of knots and then trim off any excess string using your scissors. Put a pinch of super glue on the knot to secure it. Let it dry before you wear it.

String a clasp and the clasp close onto the ends of your beading thread if you would like to tie your bracelet with a clasp. Tie a knot on the clasp loop on both ends.

Pour a dab of super glue onto the knot where the clasp is tied. Trim off any excess string from the beading thread. Let the glue dry before you wear it.
