Topics: Adding a Charm to a Seed Bead Book Thong
I would like to know how to attach a charm to the end of a strand of seed beads. I am making a book thong.
I recommend stringing a piece of French wire on the end of the string of seed beads, then add the charm so it hangs in the area of the thread protected by the French wire. Run the thread back through the first seed bead, add a half-hitch knot around the thread, then through the second bead and add another half-hitch knot. Pull the thread through the third bead, then trim the loose end. Use a small dab of glue. I suggest adding a drop of Loctite® 454 Gel adhesive, a clear quick drying craft cement with a fine applicator tip, on the knots to secure them.
