Sample text

You don’t want to close up a wrapped loop only to realize that you needed to slip a component onto the loop before wrapping it closed. To create a wrapped loop, follow these instructions: 1. Using the chain-nose pliers, bend the part of the wire where you want to create the loop into a 90-degree angle. 2. Grasp the wire at the bent area with the round-nose pliers, and while holding the pliers there, use your other hand to wrap the wire around the nose of the pliers so it looks like the loop in Figure 2-28.

2. Bring the needle back around the bottom of the bead, and insert it again. 3. Pull the bead down to about 6 to 10 inches from the end of the thread. 4. Begin stringing on beads according to the project directions. Attaching threads as you keep on weaving on When you’re weaving beads, from time to time you’ll need to attach a new thread, because as your beaded piece gets bigger, your thread gets shorter (naturally). Most bead weavers start with a working thread that is about 3 feet (plus or minus) long.

Tie a few overhand knots on the end of your cord (one on top of the other), and with scissors, trim off the excess cord after the knot, leaving the longer cord for bead-stringing purposes. 2. Insert the cord (which should be attached to a beading needle) through the hole in the bead tip, and pull the cord so the knot rests inside the shell of the bead tip, as shown in Figure 2-6. Figure 2-6: The knot rests inside the shell part of the bead tip. 3. Dab a little glue on the knot. If you’re using the type of bead tip that has two clamshell sides, use chain-nose pliers to carefully close the sides around the knot, as illustrated in Figure 2-7.
