Hello Craftsters!

I recently acquired some 3mm rubber cord and would like to make some necklaces and bracelets out of it.  My problem is what to use to finish them with.  I am worried that the coil-type ends will slip off or cut the rubber.  Anyone have any suggestions on how to finish?  Will I need to use glue as well, and if so, what kind would be best?

Thanks for any help!

There would be various ways to finish them, but you might want to check out this page at my site:

Under the Cording category, click on the Rubbery Cording subcategory.  There will be ideas in the text as well as examples of what others have done in any of the photo links that still work  Cry.

HTH,
