Jewellery School - An Adjustable Knot

An adjustable knot is an adjustable fastening for necklaces and bracelets made on leather, polyester and cotton cords without using claps and tools.

1. Arrange the two long ends parallel and tie an adjustable knot in each side . Make a loop with one end of the cord and twist this end around itself and the other cord three to five times.

2. Now push the end of this cord through the loops – also through the first loop.

3. Now pull the end of the cord and the loops will lie flat and tight around the two cords.

4. Cut the end of the cord off close to the knot. Glue it onto the loops. Take care not to glue it onto the cord on which it is intended to slide.
