Making Beaded Window Valances : Making Window Valances: Threading Pendant Beads on String


Okay, now an alternate way to tie on the end
bead or to string our lines, is to start from the pennant bead and work our way up to the
top. I find this to be an easier way to do the final knotting by the pennant. This is
what you do: you take your string and you put it through your end bead. Now if you’ve
got a pennant bead that has a hole that runs through the length of it. You run it through
like this and you’ll need a securing bead. A small seed bead or a little bit larger that
will not go through the hole, that doesn’t fit through the hole. You string that and
then you go, leaving that loose, leave your little bead loose and you go back up through
the center hole and then pull your string so that you have a good amount of length to
be able to tie a knot. You know without, without just, you know, a lot of excess, about four
or five inches. Now you just grasp the two strings together and you make a simple knot,
make a loop and put your pennant bead through the loop and pull that knot as close down
to the pennant as you can. Then you’ll do the rest of your stringing from the bottom
up, so you’ll put, I’m going to put, we’re going to trim off that excess string here.
I’m going to add one more, I’ll add one more bead on top of that and then I’ll start with
my crimping beads. You’ll measure where you want to start to add your next cluster. So
you’ll add a crimping bead and add your next cluster from there and work your way up to
the top, instead of going from the top to the pennant.
