1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Discussion and Questions / Button as focal bead in a bracelet? on: August 14, 2008 06:31:20 AM
Hi All,
I bought a lovely vintage glass button at the Bead & Button show this summer. I tried to make a bracelet with the button as a focal bead (the button has a shank on the back). Unfortunately, the button doesn't lay flat... it rather flops side to side like a table with one short leg.  Any suggestions?
2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Discussion and Questions / Beading Thread Question on: July 16, 2007 10:47:47 AM
Okay Craftsters....
I have a delima. I made a few of the coral branch bracelets found in this thread (thank you for the tutorial!) https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=148371.0

They look fabulous; however, two of the 6 or so I've made have broken from excessive wear (the recipients just LOVE them). I'm using generic beading thread with bead heaven wax. Is there some other stringing supply I should be using? I tried a fine monofilament (fishing line type but sold in bead supplies) and I've tried Beadalon extra fine.... both seem stiff compared to the thread. What do you fine folks suggest?

Hello All,
I've been a lurker and occasional poster for a few months now and figured it's time to post a few of my creations. I've been stringing on and off (mostly off) for a little less than a year. I would appreciate any feed back you may have.
