currently taking a bradley class and would love to give the other women in my class (all first time moms) a little something at our last class.

 

i've already bought some beads that i love (that have some meaning to me -- and hopefully will to them) and was hoping to make a necklace or bracelet that they could wear during the birth (or just have with them if they prefer to wear nothing).

 

problem is i don't know how to go about it.  i've been looking online for ideas, but have just become overwhelmed with all the different choices.

 

i'm only using a few beads.  what would be best, a necklace or bracelet?  what's the best (easiest to work with) thing to string them on?  and what's the best way to finish it?  i've seen lots of different clasps and things, but it looks like you need a bunch of tools (i don't want to have to invest too much in this).  is there some kind of knotting option or a bracelet/necklace that could be adjustable?

Here you go: http://www.rubysbeadwork.com/SlidingKnots.html

 

You can use either leather cord, or satin-ropecord.  If you use the satin-rope cord, you'll want to either singe the ends or dip them in clear nail polish to keep the ends from fraying.

 

I hope this helps!
