Bracelet with Czech Glass Beads, Swarovski Crystal Beads, Accu-Flex® Paper Beading Cord and Magnetic Tube Clasps

Color Accu-Flex paper cord with a marker to match your beads and/or clasp and findings.
String on the beads in your design. Knot one end using an overhand knot. Repeat the knot, two to three times so the knot builds on top of itself, making it large enough to fill the cavity of the clasp yet pass through the opening.
Add a drop of cyanoacrylate (super) glue, string on one clasp end then pull the knot inside the opening of the clasp. Let the glue cure per manufacturer's instructions.
Knot the other end of the paper cord. Place the tip of the awl inside the forming knot then pull the cord so the knot lands close to the last bead. There should be enough space between the last bead and the knot so the clasp can be added without having too much slack in the cording. Form the knot two or three times as you did on the first half.
Add a drop of glue, thread on the clasp, pull the knot inside then let the glue cure.
Trim the cording sticking out past the clasp ends.
