Hi, I'm Leonardo Martinez at Legendary Beads in Austin. Today I'm going to show you how to make a sliding knot for a necklace. First, taking about 15 inches of string, making a loop, sliding the string through your knot, bringing your string around the other side, making another knot. Lining them up, pulling them tight, and bringing them together. They should just fit together. And pulling them back apart, for resizing and adjusting whatever size you need. And this is how you make a sliding knot for a necklace.
