My YouTube channel on the Button Knot

I find that the button knot is the most useful knot to know for making jewellery, especially when using glass lampwork beads and 2mm satin cords. I have at last finished my You Tube channel on the button knot, entitled "The Very Useful Button Knot".  There are 8 videos covering different ways of tying the button knot, for example how to tie it with just one cord, and how to tie it with two cords, as in jewellery making it's quite possible you might be using two cords and not just one. I also show you how to move the knot, as when you've finished tying it it does not usually lie in the right place on your cord. I also show how to tie a double button knot with just one cord and also with two cords. There are two videos showing just diagrams, as it's very helpful to have a diagram to show you the "anatomy" of the knot. Both types of button knot can be tied with just fingers which is very helpful when making knotted jewellery.

  1. I've recently bought your book, and was overjoyed to find your u tube tutorials to go along with it. Don't get me wrong, it's not that the book doesn't explain clearly.....it's entirely my lack of brain power lol. It is lovely to have to video's to help me be successful with the new craft..fasters. Thanks. Hugs lin
