Leave a 4" or so strand, chain as many as needed to go around wrist. Leave another 4" strand at end. I make 6 strands, hold them all together and tie a knot at each end right after the chains. Then put all the strands thru a bead, push the bead all the way to the 2 knots at end of chains. Tie a little knot on each individual strand about 2" below the bead. Cut off bottom after knot. this will prevent the bead from falling off.
