Beading String & Cord FAQs

When should bead cord be used for beading?

Popular beading cords include simple stretch thread and stretch jelly elastic. These are versatile cord options which can be used for jewellery making. They are constructed from durable plastic and are affordable. Leather thonging is also popular for a rustic look and durability.

What are the advantages of stretch elastic cord?

Stretch elastic cord will only be used for projects that require some stretch, this may include bracelets and necklaces without a clasp, which are pulled over the hands or over the head. To close a piece of jewellery that has been made with stretch cord, all you have to do is tie a knot at the end of the bracelet.

What knot to use for beading elastic?

For stretch thread and jelly elastic, a reef knot is the best way to tie and secure your beads.
