Cut the leather at an angle to assist in fitting two ends through the hole of the cross connector. For a better grip on the end of the leather, consider using serrated flat-nose pliers to pull the leather through the hole.
Loop the leather ends through to make a lark's-head knot.
String the beads onto the leather cord.
For added strength, add a dab of Bead Fix to the leather ends before crimping. Crimp by squeezing the center of the crimp firmly with round-nose or narrow chain-nose pliers.
