Step 1

For this technique, we are using a 2mm cord and a 3mm cord end.

Step 2

Insert the cord into the cord end.

Step 3

With the chain nose pliers, grasp the middle of the right side of the cord end and squeeze until it is flat against the cord.

Step 4

Gently squeeze the top of the right side until it is flat against the cord.

Step 5

Gently squeeze the bottom of the right side until it is flat against the cord.

Step 6

Gently squeeze the middle of the left side until it is lying flat on top of the right side of the cord end.

Step 7

Gently squeeze the bottom of the left side until it is lying flat on top of the right side of the cord end.

Step 8

Gently squeeze the top of the left side until it is lying flat on top of the right side of the cord end.

Step 9

Repeat for the second side of the cord. The loops on the cord end can now be used to attach jump rings or clasps.
