Clip column bead under the top of your clip board.




Clip your leather to the bottom of your clipboard using a binder clip.




Add a length of knotting cord under your leather.




Create your first Shamballa knot.




Un-clip from board and push knot tight to column.




Reclip to your board.




Continue your knotting until you have between 10 and 12 patterns depending on length you need.




Unclip your binder clip, and load a 4mm multi-cut seamless bead onto each cord.




Continue by adding a 19x5 column bead on both cords, followed by a 4mm multi-cut, 8mm contour, 12mm briolette, 8mm contour, and a 4mm multi-cut on to each cord. String on a 23x5 column bead on to both cords. add 4mm multi-cut, 8mm contour, 12mm briolette, 8mm contour, and a 4mm multi-cut on to each cord. add your last 19x5 column bead followed by your last 2 multi-cut seamless beads(1 on each cord).




Re-clip your binder clip and begin knotting using the same number of patterns as before.










Clip excess knotting cord and melt ends using a lighter. (Be Careful)




Tie off leather approx. 3/4 to 1 inch from end of knotting making sure that other end with column bead will slide through but is not to loose and pull tight.
