Tip: "Instead of using wire to 'pull' the doubled length of buna through the closure bead, I use a length of heavy fishing line. I came across this idea when to my dismay the hole in the bead I made wasn't large enough for a wire loop so out of desperation I grabbed some fishing line and it worked like a dream! It didn't cut into the buna cord at all and I could sucessfully incorporate the smaller bead for the look I wanted!"
From Tracy Van Buskirk
Tip: "If you are making a necklace that is long enough to pull over your head, a good way to attach the two loose ends to each other permanently is to find a small, pretty bead with an opening the size of your buna cord and glue the two ends of the buna cord into each end of the bead. Or of course you could make a small PC bead with just the right opening size."
