Place a bead stopper on the end.
- Repeat the previous 2 steps, completing the other side of your bracelet, stringing your party beads through the second hole in all your strand spacers.
- On one of your strands of strung Opelon, remove the bead stoppers from both ends, cross the ends and tie a knot. Follow the instructions in the video for tying a secure knot with stretch cord. Add a little GS HypoCement to secure the knot and trim the ends. Pull the elastic a bit so that the knot hides inside a bead.
