Get some beads.

They need to be about 10 to 30 grams.

Size, about as big around as your little finger

Get some string.

It needs to be about 10" long.

Knot one end

Tie a knot in one end of the string and thread the other end through the beads.

Tie another knot in the string, such that the distance between the beads, when pulled apart, is twice the width of your four fingers near your palm.

Cut off the excess string.

now you can go see all the videos on how to do tricks with the begleri, and wish you could do the same.


I’ve left off some stuff, like how to tie a knot or what kind of knot to tie, or the size hole in the bead, or what size of string.

Some of that you can figure out, others are personal preference.


I am sick of finding nothing but buy sites when searching google, so I am going to write an ad-free how-to on anything I search for and can’t find.

Even if it’s simplistic, amateurish, or wrong.

They’ll probably never see the light of day on google anyway.
