Step 1

For this technique, we are using a 2mm cord and a 4 prong round cord end.

Step 2

Insert the cord into the cord end.

Step 3

With the chain nose pliers, grasp the top and bottom prongs of the cord end.

Step 4

Gently squeeze the prongs until they are secure against the cord.

Step 5

With the chain nose pliers, grasp the side prongs of the cord end.

Step 6

Gently squeeze the side prongs until they are secure against the cord.

Step 7

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