Tutorial : Make Your Own Tasbeeh

I received an email from Riikka in Sweden and she told me that she is interested in making tasbih by herself, and asked me if I can make pictures of how to make one..

well, here it is... it's not perfect but I hope Riikka and other readers at least have a clue to make a tasbih. and forgive me Riikka, it took three weeks to answer your email.. :)

Tools : Scissors, Flat Nose Plier, Round Nose Plier, and Glue

Actually, the most important tools here are scissors and glue. The plier used depend on the type of tasbih closure.. hehehe.. apa sih ya nyebutnya, tergantung kepala tasbih-nya mau dibuat seperti apa, gitu lho maksudnya.. :P 

Materials : faux pearls, spacer, spacer with ring, beads cap, eye pin, head pin, and string (the picture is in fig. 1)

I'm not familiar enough with beading terminology.. hehe.. so I call the materials as I like.. :P
please correct me if I'm wrong yaa...
note : you can also use cord / thread instead of string.

How to :

1. Take the string and make a hard note at one side (fig. 4 & 5)
fig. 5
2. Put the beads on string, and count until 11 beads (fig. 6)
fig. 6
3. Put a spacer and then continue stringing the beads. (fig. 7 & 8)

4. Keep stringing the beads until u reach three groups of 11 beads separated by spacer, and then put spacer with ring at the end (fig. 9)

5. Tie the finished stringing (fig. 10 & 11)
