Topics: Knotting

I used silk thread to wrap around a metal triangle with an open center that I want to use as my focal component in a necklace design. The wrapping turned out really nice, but I don't know how to cleanly finish it without a knot showing. Any ideas? Thanks,

A technique called whipping or binding is a clean way to finish off your thread and hide the knot at the same time. View the instructions for creating a whipping knot.
