- When choosing a bead, make sure the hole is large enough to accommodate the size cording you choose.
- Familiarize yourself with square knots.
- This project requires you to sew the ends of your cording up through the braid that you had made, both on the actual bracelet and then again when you make the clasp. A Big-eye needle, or another type of large-eye but dull needle point helps. Another trick for a finer cording like beading cord is to put Elmer's glue on the ends of the cording, and make the cording act as the needle (this also helps to keep the ends from fraying as your knotting).
