Topics: Knotting Pearls, The Bead Knotter™
I bought The Bead Knotter™ and have been practicing for days. Just when I think I have it down, I get a knot too far from the pearl. When I pull the tool away to form the knot, it invariably gets hung up on the instrument and I can't pull it any closer to the pearl. I have watched the video and believe I'm doing it the same way. Please help! Thank you.
The Bead Knotter is a great tool to use for knotting pearls. Here are a few helpful tips:
- It's best to keep the knot on the tool's pin right up until you reach the point where you want to place the bead
- If the bead or knot slip, the knot will end up in the wrong place
- Keep continuous tension on the thread, and make sure to keep the thread in the tool's "Y" and on the pin until you get it in place
