Take one end of the Stretch Magic jewellery cord, and make a simple knot by looping the cord under, over, and under again. Make sure you keep a longer tail on the side of the jewellery cord where you won't be stringing beads. You'll need to be able to tie this end with the other end after the beads are strung.
Pull the knot tight. This will tie off the first side of your jewellery cord.
String your desired amount of beads onto the Stretch Magic jewellery cord. Make sure the first bead is small enough that the knot you made will hold it firmly in place.
Loop the other end of the Stretch Magic jewellery cord into a knot as you did the first end. Don't tighten this knot just yet.
Use a pair of tweezers to slowly move the knot toward the beads. Make sure the knot doesn't completely tighten until it's holding the beads in place. Again, the last bead should be small enough that the knot you made will hold it firmly in place.
Tighten the knot to finish tying off the second end. Make sure you have enough jewellery cord left over to tie it to the first end.
Take the remaining Stretch Magic jewellery cord on either end, and tie the two ends together using the same simple knot.
Make sure the knot is tight, and use a pair of scissors to snip off the excess Stretch Magic jewellery cord. Leave just enough jewellery cord so that you can tighten the knot if it starts to come loose.
