A surgeons' knot is recommended for finishing elastic cord. This knot is secure and will not slip after it is tightened. It is recommended to use E-6000® Jewelry and Craft Adhesive on the knot to add extra security to the knot. Place the knot next to a bead with a large hole, then after the knot has been made, and before the glue is dry, tuck the knot into the bead hole. Another option for hiding the knot would be to place a crimp cover over the knot.
