Hey all!

I had an idea for a bracelet - I'm trying to break a habit, and every day I succeed, I add on a bead to a bracelet.

I'm super new to making jewelry, and I'm not sure what kind of clasp would stand up to being removed every day to add a bead. Or if maybe there was thin flexible cord that could be tied/untied every day.

I would like to use smaller beads (not big ol chunky ones with cord).

Thanks for any help or ideas!

Hmm, you might try making a charm bracelet on a chain. In this case, you won't have to detach the  clasp - you could simply attach the charms to the chain with a jump ring.

As for cord that can be tied and untied, waxed cord is flexible and can stand a lot of abuse.

I know that Darice makes a variety of bangle bracelet forms with a ball on the end that unscrews to add beads.  Being a threaded piece of metal, it's designed to do just the kind of thing you're describing.  Of course, I don't know what diameter the bracelet forms come in, or how small a bead you could comfortably put on it, but it might be worth looking into.  They should be available in any craft store that carries the Darice brand.

Good luck with breaking your habit!!!  Smiley
