How to:
1. Cut two 50cm lengths of S-Lon and knot them together, approx 15cm from one end.

2. Stick the shorter ends down to your work surface with some tape. Cut the longer ends at an angle, to make threading the beads onto the thread easier.

3. Take one bead and using the longer ends of thread, take one through the bead left to right and the other right to left.

4. Pull the ends tight until the bead sits up near the knot.

    I really love the simple geometric shape. Last weekend I created my own bracelet you can see here and linked back to your tutorial. Thank you so much for the super helpful step-by-step pictures. I even managed the square sliding knot with your tutorial. 🙂
    Much love,

    I am from Ukraine. I liked your tutorial very much. It is easy but looks beautiful! I used the wire instead of thread, because the holes in my beads were too small. Svitlana

      Hi Jean, so glad you like the bracelet! Regular s-lon cord will easily fit twice through a 6/0 bead. You can cut the ends of the thread at an angle to help and even stiffen it with super glue or nail polish. Just make sure that the threads go in opposite directions through the bead/s. Does that help? Emma
