Stretch Cord

Stringing a piece of jewelry on stretch cord is your simplest method of jewelry construction. Stretch cord comes in numerous diameters and brands. Pick the heaviest (thickest diameter) cord you can get through the beads. String your project leaving at least 3 inches of cord on each end empty. Tie several overhand knots tightly. Put a dab of bearer’s glue over the knots. Pull it tight once more. Wait 24 hours and then cut off the ends. You can cover the knots with a crimp cover.
