Make A Gorgeous Stretch Bracelet Set With Your Left-Over Beads (That Actually Hold Up!)




I have posted below the two different sized cords and crimp beads that I use the most when making stretch bracelets. I gave the item numbers next to each one so you can look them up on the Fire Mountain Gems website. I’m not affiliated with FireMountainGems.com in any way, shape or form. This is strictly for your information on where I order my materials because I have so many people ask me.

I use this when stringing the light weight or average beads:
*0.8mm Power Cord with 3x2 crimp tubes:
Item numbers H20-1695BS and H20-2600FY


I usually use this for the beads that have a little more weight to them:
*1.0mm Power Cord with 3x3 crimp tubes:
Item numbers H201708BS and H20-9690FD


*Your Choice of Various Beads in Coordinating Colors (I try to stick with 2 or 3 colors)
*GS Hypo-Cement Fabric Glue:
*H20-3128TL

Tools:
*Chain Nose Pliers
*Bead Reamer (If using pearls!)
