Thread 3-4 beads onto each cord and slide them to the center of the length. Lay all 3 cords side by side and together fold them in half with the beads in the center. Tie a simple overhand knot below the beads to secure them. Now you should have 6 strands of even length.
Separate the strands to make three groups of 2 strands each. Braid the strands until you have about 8 inches of braid. Tie a knot at the bottom of the braid.
On each of the six strands, add one small bead and one rod. Tie a knot below each rod, them trim the ends.
