Beading Tip - Hiding and Securing Your Knots!

We get many emails in a day asking for advice or
just with general "how do you" questions!

One of the questions that comes up a lot is about
the securing of the knot when you have to attach
another length of beading stringing material.

As we suggest the best knot to use is the
square knot, its very effective and should
be all that you need to secure the 2 pieces
together and then you hide the knot inside
the bead.

Some beader's like to add one extra step
to be sure that the knot doesn't come undone
therefore having your project fall apart.

Glue can be applied to the knots for an extra
secure hold. Use a pin or toothpick to apply a small
amount to seal a knot, being careful not to get glue
on any beads when you are tucking the knot inside.

There are many glue products on the market,
so before you choose one make sure it can be used
for this purpose. There is also glue that is available
just for beads which is available at your local craft store,
so you might want to check that out as well!

If you have any questions that we can help you with, or
any beading hints or tips that you would like to share with
everyone just send us an email we would love to hear from
you at any time!
