|This tutorial is to show you how to tie your pendants, with top loops ie., implosions, onto the
adjustable cords that you purchase in my store. For beads, you can just thread the two tassel
ends through the hole and secure with an overhand knot. If you decide to cut the ends close
to the knot you will need to finish the ends as stated in step 11 or use a touch of super glue or
nail polish in order to keep the knot from "un-doing" itself.
