How do you get beads to stay in place?

Just wrap a piece of tape to the point on your thread where you’d like to start your beadwork. No beads will slip off while you begin, and you can slide the tape off the end of the thread when you’re sure everything’s in place. These little coiled gizmos are great for holding beads in place on stringing wire.
