Materials Needed

  • Jeweltone Power Cord, 5mm elastic medium blue F14-1689BS
  • Czech pressed, glass beads, sapphire tube 14mm x 4mm F14-4305MD
  • Swarovski® Crystal components 4mm cube clear crystal AB F14-1623CY
  • Fire polished cobalt round 6mm F14-6044GB
  • Czech fire polished round faceted beads green/purple F14-3321GL
  • Light-medium twisted beading needles F14-1040BS
  • GS Hypo Cement F14-1956TL
  • Baby powder


1. Cut 2 yards of power cord. Dust the cord lightly with baby powder so the beads slide on easily. String a beading needle on one end of the cord and set aside.

2. String the following onto the cord, working from the end of cord without the needle: 3mm cube bead, 6mm faceted bead, 3mm cube bead and a tube bead.

3. Pass the needle through the tube bead strung in Step 2. TIP: try not to pierce the thread with the needle.

4. Repeat the pattern in Step 2-3, alternating rows. Pull the beads tight by pulling both tails.

5. Finish with a Sailor’s knot—right over left, right over left and pull snug, but don’t cinch down. Turn the knot around and do right over left, right over left from this direction and pull tight. Snug the two knots together, place a drop of glue on the knot and let dry overnight Cut off the extra cord once the glue is dry.
