I spent a few moments learning how to tie a surgeon's knot last night (while eating a blizzard). This is a very helpful knot if you want to make bracelets using stretchy cording such as Stretch Magic. I got a great deal on some mother-of-pearl shells sold in a mixed set of colors(my blue necklace, listed several posts ago, contained a couple of these shells). These worked perfectly in the bracelet design. I am going to make a few more before I list the pictures.
