So when I was in ceramic class this semester I made some gold beads that were kinda lumpy but still looked alright. I'd been saving them until I could think of the perfect use for them so yesterday I was thinking I would make on of those long necklace that you rap around your neck a couple of times. They are really popular around here now. I though this would be the perfect use for my handmade beads and I just happend to have the perfect smaller seed beads to go with it. So I made it really long because I wanted to rap it a few times. When I finished it was perfect! I was so happy. So I put it on and then I was like I could probably wear this as a bracelet too....so I rapped it around my wrist a bunch of times then when I went to take it off it got tangled and really tight around my wrist and I couldn't get it off at all so I had to break it to get it off and untangled.  I was like okay I have enough time to fix it so I did and it was shorter but good. So I got dressed and it matched my outfit perfectly and then I was looking for my shoes it go caught on something and broke all over and down my cleavage.  I wanted to cry. 

At 5 in the morning when I was changing to go to bed I had a bra full of beads and it made me sad again.  Cry

That's so depressing. Necklaces have a knack of breaking when it'll make you the most mad.

I had that problem once, beads down the cleavage I mean. And in a nice trail all around the house (I walked around for a while before I realized it was broken). It was the oddest sensation to have a bead fall down my back... Wink

I dont know how big the hole was in the beads, but if you used thin elastic then i would suggest yarn or cotton, If there wasnt a clasp on the back i think that would have helped in those *tangled* situwations.
