Topics: Cord Coils

Q.
There is a finding (not sure of its name) that is tightly spiraled and has a loop at the top. I see corded necklaces used with this. The cord is attached somehow to this finding. It does not look crimped or flattened at all yet the cord remains tight in it. HOW do I do this? I have not been able to find the answer. Please Help! Thanks! Oh and where do I look for the answer please?

Topics: Securing Letter Beads to Leather Cording

Q.
I am making bracelets using 4.6mm alphabet letters and 2mm leather cording. My letters (arranged into a word) are centered on the cord.

I am looking to use some type of bead, crimp or something instead of the knot to prevent the letters from sliding on the cord. Any suggestions? I saw something called smart beads but I don't think the hole is big enough to fit the 2mm leather through it.
