Tip for finishing your design:
The line will catch a flame when it is lit. As the line burns it will shrink forming a knot. You should blow out the flame before it reaches the clasp hole. There should be about 1/4 inch of line after making knot.
A little slack will be necessary for proper bending. You can also practice burning knots in the line before starting your project. As always use caution when working with a lighter & give yourself plenty of clear space to work. Have fun Magnetik beading!
