How do I assemble something like this ? It looks like 3 strands to make 6 rows....but how do I get and keep that twist in there?
I don't think it's three strands...it looks to be six strands. Look closely at the loops on the clasp. Looks to me like there are two strands on each loop. It's twisted quite well, though!
But HOW is it twisted to stay that way?
I believe it stays that way, because of the way it is put together. They twisted it, and attached it to the different loops, as it is twisted. once it is attached to the clasp in this way, it will not come undone, unlike when you have all the strands attached to a single loop.
Thank you. I'm going to give it a try. i guess if all else fails, there's super glue :)
One more question......what kind of stringing material wouldbe best for this kind of thing?
Probably 6 lb Fire Line would be as good as anything.
