Clip a piece of wire about four inches long.

Wrap it around the knitting needle, shaping it so both ends meet.

Slip the beads onto both ends of the wire simultaneously and slide it up close to the needle.

Clip excess wire below the bead, leaving about one centimeter.

With pliers, grasp the end of the wires and curl towards the bead.

Make sure there aren’t any sharp ends sticking out to prevent snagging when in use.
