Intro: Threading a Guru Bead 1
A guru bead is a three holed bead that is used to finish Buddhist malas or prayer beads.
Also known as the 'mother bead'.
To complete you will need:
1 guru bead (plus tower)
1 length of thin beading wire
Step 1: Shape the Wire
Twist the wire around itself so it is a needle shape.
use your fingers to make a curve at the end.
At the other end thread string through wire loop.
Thread wire through one side of bead.
The curve should allow it to come out through the central hole.
Pull the string through.
Repeat with the other side of the bead.
Step 4: All Done
Thread the tower .
This can also be done with a small hook see my other instructions.
