3. Using a Big-Eye needle, string each cord with beads as indicated in the pattern you are going to follow. See “Stringing beads” for more guidance on bead stringing.
4. After stringing, tie a tama loop at the end of each cord, and attach a tama:
• About 3 in. (7.6 cm) from the end of the cord, make a fold. With the folded end, make a loop. Pass the folded
end through the loop, and pull tight (photo c). This loop should be pretty small, but the size isn’t critical.
• Next, pass the working cord through the loop, making a large slip knot (photo d). Insert the tama or bobbin into the new loop, and pull snug.
