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.
