21  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / keeping thread untangled when making leather wrap bracelets? on: July 16, 2011 05:56:26 PM
I have been making bracelets like these:

Since these are really long bracelets and need really long thread, HOW do you keep your thread untangled? I have had to just start over on several bracelets due to developing a knot that just won't come out. Or I end up making the bracelets shorter than I want simply because I can't deal with even longer thread.

Other than the obvious "just take your time and go slow", is there maybe a trick to the trade that I need to know about?

THANKS!

I've started making simple crochet necklaces/bracelets kind of like this.

(Link is not to my own project. Haven't figured out how to upload pics here, so had to link to someone else.)

Anyway... I need to thread through a button or bead on one end, then make a loop for the closure on the other end. So obviously I can not just pull through and weave in the ends on either end of the chain. And tying a knot only results in an ugly knot that could easily pull apart.

Any tips?

THANKS!
