Tips & Tricks

  • Lay Out Your Design First
  • Prestretch Your Elastic Cord
  • Tape Can Be A Bead Stopper. I just put a little piece on the end of my cord, and start stringing my beads. When I’m done stringing, I just snip off that little end of cord with the tape on it.
  • For extra knot security, tie a surgeon's knot. This knot is done by making the first half of the knot as usual, and when doing the second half of the knot, pass the end of the cord under and through one additional time. Then pull the cord tight to finish the knot.
  • Reinforce the knot by dabbing on some clear nail polish or glue. Let it dry for a few minutes, and then cut off the remaining long ends of the cord close to the knot.
  • Whatever you do, don’t pull on one end of the bracelet to form a triangle and stretch it over your hand. It stresses the elastic and eventually, it will snap. To keep your bracelet in tip-top shape, roll the beads over your wrist, stretching the elastic as little as possible.
