Making your own jewellery at home allows you the creativity to enhance your appearance with personalised accessories. From bracelets and earrings to intricately beaded necklaces, wearing your own beaded creations is a satisfying experience. Knowing how to tie off bead jewellery with nylon wire or silk allows you the ability to create a variety of pieces with ease.

Tie off one end of the bracelet by making a double knot around a simple ring finding.

Tie off the other end of the nylon wire bracelet by making a double knot around the looped edge of a lobster clasp finding.

Squeeze a tiny dot of glue onto the knotted findings at each end so that they don't slip out of place. Give the bracelet about an hour to dry before wearing it.

Tie one end of the silk cord beaded necklace to the looped end of a ring-toggle jewellery finding. Make two knots in the silk cord and pull it tightly.

Tie the other end of the beaded silk cord around the looped end of the matching piece of the toggle finding. Make two knots and pull the cord tightly to secure the knots.

Squeeze a small amount of glue at the base of each knotted end. This step is completely optional, but it further secures the knots of the beaded silk.
