Strings Failing
by: Anonymous

I've made about a dozen bracelets using stretch string from Hobby Lobby. Three of the braclets have broke including one of my own.

Is there a better brand or heavier duty sting other than Stretch Magic?

burning the ends
by: Anonymous

if you are going to melt anything i recommend a wood burning tool i use it to seal the ends of hair bows and it works wonderfully i never had much luck with open fire i would burn something

the clear nail polish works really well :) just let it dry for a good 15 minutes first...

Tying a Knot Using Stretch String

Hey Leilani,

Thanks for your question.

Here's what another visitor wrote for a similar question:

"I've found that at least a couple of kinds of knots DO work with Stretch Magic: the square knot and the surgeon's knot.

Pull the knots as tight as possible, then tuck the knot into the nearest bead hole with a dot of jewelry glue and let it sit at least 24 hours.

Don't cut your ends TOO close to the knot. Some people melt the knot with a little heat, but I don't have the knack for that; I end up melting the whole knot. (G)"

Cheers,
