oooooo beautiful idea, now how to secure those beads. Well I'm afraid the was I know means taking them all off again. Put first one or two beads on, then double up the thread so both ends meet and the beads are on the bottom. Then continue to thread other beads on the top. You can then secure the two ends together. Think that would work. Really love the bookmark, again such lovely colours big hugs Vicki oxo's

Hi Vanessa. You need to take the thread over one bead and then thread back two beads, made a knot between two beads, thread through another two beads, knot, do it again do it once more put a bit of clear nail varnish on and end of thread, cut very close to main thread. The nail varnish helps to strengthen the end and stick to the main thread. Hope that makes sense. I think I'll have to try these they are great, and it would use up my bead stash.

I really like this, I must see if I could come up with something similar, would be great for a prezzie for Andy too. I have loads of tiny beads that came with an ebay purchase....but I am really not sure I would have the patience - Hugs Chrissy
