1:Take the 3 lengths of leather cord and double over evenly. Create an overhand loop knot with enough space for a 10mm bead plus a bit of leather to pull through. 2:Take 2 strands of leather and string through a large hole shell pearl. 3:Make an overhand knot after stringing on the shell pearl. This secures the placement of the shell pearl, and allows you to divide the 2 strands of leather and pair them with different strands.
