Tying a beaded bracelet ensures that the beads won't come loose, and it can be done by securing a final bead, running the thread through it several times and using an overhand knot to secure it. Tie off a beaded bracelet with advice from a professional beaded jewelry designer in this free video on beading.
Hello I'm Audrey Parramore with thebeadingdr.com. I'm the beading expert and I'm here to show you how to tie a beaded bracelet. These are some of the supplies that you will need in order to tie off the beaded bracelet. Of course a variety of beads of your choice and color combinations. Here I have a center stone that I am using and I am kind of using the same accent beads to go around that center stone. I took off a few beads to just show you how to put it on the elastic chord that we are using for the process of how to tie off a beaded bracelet. So as you can see I am adding on each bead to the elastic and after I finish adding the beads, you know I make sure it is the same number of beads on each side so then you know it balances well after finishing the piece. Then we are going to take the elastic and we're going to tie the piece off and I'm just doing an over hand knot and I am going to do another tie. I like to do a few more just for again I know I say this, security. I'm actually going to do another technique where I run in back through a bead and pull it out and I'm going to run it back through one more and again my famous word security. I take my scissors and give that elastic a good snip. I have one more tail that I'm going to take through the other end, I ran that through that end. Coming back through one more bead and now I'm going to cut that tail and that is actually how you tie off a beaded bracelet. Audrey Parramore, your beading expert, thebeadingdr.com.
