Making the triangles--- start out with a piece of duck tape about 3 inches long. Cut another piece of duck tape to put over it about 2 3/4 inches down on top. This will make it so the point of your triangle can stick to the other piece easily. Cut the triangle so that it has one long point, and two of the same size points. The long point should be sticky! Continue making these until you have as many as you desire. It doesn't matter if some are a bit smaller or larger than others. Rolling the triangles--- rolling them is easy, you just put the large end onto your pencil, a d roll! When it is all rolled you sticky side should fold onto it and it should stay. Make more and then your ready for your jewelry.

Get your string, and tie a knot on one end. If your string is tiny like mine, slip a bead on and to the end, and tie around it. Then continue, and finish. Tie another know when all of the beads are on and wear!
