1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Discussion and Questions / Re: What am I doing wrong? (Stretch Magic) on: February 11, 2013 05:37:02 PM
Thanks for the advice. I tried switching to a slightly thicker version and that has helped so far. I will try reaming the beads as well. Thanks so much!

Ok, another question. I am big into jewelry crafting lately, but this is my first project using stretch cord (stretch magic). It seems like when I go to finish bracelets the cord breaks, sending beads flying everywhere. At first I thought it was crimp beads (even tho I've seen a few projects calling for them), so I stopped using them. Then I thought maybe it was the knots breaking, but I realized it's breaking in the middle. Could I just be pulling it too tight? It just seems so fragile, if I go to put a finished bracelet on and it breaks. I also read in the instructions that you should stretch the cord before using it. I didn't really do that, but would that cause it to break so easily?

Thanks for the tips.  Grin I will give these a try. I'd love to keep it if I could unkink it.  If not, maybe I will try braiding it into bracelets.

I bought some clearance thick faux leather cord at Hobby Lobby, just to realize it's all kinked up. Same thing with bolo cord. Is there a way to salvage this or should I just return it?

I agree. I love the bead buddy which is a 1 step crimper. The link didn't work for me so I'm not sure if that's what you're referring to or not...

They are everywhere, depending on what you are looking for. Pinterest is a great site to find diy and tutorials.

I have actually seen these at Michaels. I bought some a few weeks back, but haven't decided what to do with them (only they are silver, not gold).
