This is so easy and so pretty. It adds a great finishing touch to your jewelry creation. I always use this type on my macrame pieces. It's so much edgier than trying to work a clasp when you live alone like I do. You can use it with macrame vore or paracord too.

Didn't look at the video yet BUT I really like the picture of the bracelet along with the video. That way I know what is coming. Often, because it takes so long to click on each item to see if I like it, (another issue - how about less projects and pictures of everything in the email) I skip over the videos because it takes too long to see the finished product.

I am so excitedf about this tutorial, showing how easy it is to do the sliding knots!!! I have purchased a few jewelry items with the sliding knots & thought it was complicated to make, but it is unbelievable how easy it is to complete. Thanks a bunch! QTKT

Thank you so much for this tutorial for the sliding knot. I wish I had it yesterday when I couldn't find cimps for my grandaughter's necklace. Always wanted to know how to do that sliding knot, but this is the first very clear video of how it's done. Thanks much for saying "over under" enough times for my addled brain to keep it.
